Oct. 2, 2012
ANNAPOLIS, Md. -- Volleyball player Carolyn Ewert (Sr., Bakersfield, Calif.) was selected as this week's NAAA Athlete of the Week presented by Rolls Royce.
Navy began the week by losing the first two sets of its match against Lehigh on Friday night before rallying to defeat the Mountain Hawks in five sets. Then, Saturday afternoon, the Mids lost the first two sets of their match against Lafayette before again rallying to post a five-set victory.
Ewert tied a career high with 20 kills in Navy's win against Lehigh, with four of her kills coming in the fifth set alone. The following day she knocked down 16 kills and hit .333 in the victory over Lafayette. Ewert led the Mids with an average of 3.60 kills per set on the weekend.
Navy is now 3-1 in Patriot League play this fall and will next play Friday night at American.
