Carlson Makes BIG EAST Honor Roll Appearance
Oct. 15, 2012
MILWAUKEE – After helping the Marquette University women’s volleyball team to a perfect 7-0 start in league play, senior middle hitter Danielle Carlson was named to the BIG EAST Conference Weekly Honor Roll Monday afternoon.
Carlson hit a combined .444 (39-3-81) in wins over Western Michigan, Seton Hall and Rutgers, including a mark of .636 against the Broncos on Tuesday, Oct. 9. The Marshfield, Wis., native notched just three attack errors on the week in 13 total sets, while averaging three kills and close to a block per frame.
Her steady play at the net, contributing 13 and 12 kills respectively against SHU and RU, helped the Golden Eagles pull out five-set triumphs against the Pirates and Scarlet Knights.
It is Carlson’s second weekly honor of the season and the fifth of her career. She also earned mention from the league office on Sept. 17 after earning all-tournament honors at the Marquette Invitational.
The Golden Eagles return to action Friday, Oct. 19 against Cincinnati and Sunday, Oct. 21 vs. Louisville, the only two squads to have beaten MU in league play the last two seasons.
