The PACWEST is pleased to announce the volleyball Athletes of the Week following week 7 of the PACWEST season.

Female Volleyball Athlete of the Week
Amanda Dobbyn – VIU Mariners

On Friday night in their Island Rivalry match with Camosun, Dobbyn tallied 11 offensive points (six kills, three blocks, and two aces). She was a strong presence in the middle with three stuff blocks and many more block continues. She was set seven times and scored six ending with an outstanding 86% hitting percentage. Then on Saturday she tallied eight kills off of nine attempts for another incredible 89% hitting percentage as well as recording four more stuff blocks and a weekend total of seven digs. In all from the middle position she totaled 14 kills, seven stuff blocks, seven digs and a pair of aces.

Male Volleyball Athletes of the Week
Jonathan Lee – Capilano Blues

CapU libero Jonathan Lee was instrumental this past weekend in two wins over the CCAA #6 ranked Douglas College Royals. On Friday night he had a passer rating of 2.2 to go along with his 15 digs, which allowed his front row attackers to focus on their offence. On Sunday, he controlled the Blues’ reception line once again and was all over the court, passing a 2.4 and tallying 17 digs. His presence and precision also forced the Royals’ servers into 26 service errors and only one ace across Sunday’s four sets.
