Paluck Earns Weekly Conference Honor

TOWSON, Md. – Susquehanna junior libero Sarah Paluck (Nesquehoning, Pa./Tamaqua Area) was named the Landmark Conference Volleyball Athlete of the Week on Monday afternoon.

Paluck started all five of her team's matches last week as the Crusaders went 5-0 without dropping a set. She racked up a season-best 24 digs in Wednesday's 3-0 home victory against Franklin & Marshall and combined for 67 more digs in four matches at the Lycoming Invitational – a tournament SU won – on Friday and Saturday.

In the final match of the weekend, Paluck had five service aces to go along with 20 digs in a 3-0 win against Elmira.

Through 13 matches this season, the Crusaders are 12-1 and Paluck leads the team with 240 digs (5.45 digs per set), has 17 assists and a team-best 18 service aces. SU has won all three of its tournaments thus far this fall.

Susquehanna returns to the court on Sept. 17 with a 7:30 match at Johns Hopkins.
