Christina Rauh Repeats as AMCC Player of the Week
BRADFORD, Pa. - For the second straight week, Pitt-Bradford volleyball player Christina Rauh has garnered AMCC Player of the Week honors, as announced by the league office Monday.
It marks the third time in four weeks a Panther has received the conference’s weekly award, and represents the third time in her career Rauh has earned the honor.
The senior setter led the Panthers to a 3-0 week, including league wins over Mt. Aloysius and Penn State Altoona. She totaled 110 assists, 41 digs, five aces and two blocks while averaging 11 assists and more than four digs per set.
In a non-conference win over Allegheny, Rauh posted her second career triple-double, registering a career-high 50 assists, 10 kills and 15 digs. In the team’s AMCC opener versus Mt. Aloysius, she logged a double-double of 35 assists and 16 digs, and closed out the week with a 25-assist, 10-dig performance against Penn State Altoona.
The Panama, N.Y., native leads the league in assists per set (8.63), total service aces (36) and service aces per set (0.73). Her .320 hitting percentage ranks second in the AMCC only to teammate Kirsten Platz, and she is one of just 11 players nationally to record two or more triple-doubles this season.
Pitt-Bradford is 13-3 on the season, having already surpassed its win total from a season ago, and will host Penn State Behrend Wednesday at 7 p.m.
