Defiance College’s Alicia Kalik (South Lyon, Mich./H.S.) helped the Yellow Jackets to a 3-0 mark last week and has been named the Heartland Collegiate Athletic Conference Volleyball Player of the Week on offense for the second time.
Kalik accounted for 26 assists and six digs in a 3-0 sweep of Earlham, but really came to play on Saturday as the setter put together a pair of great outings that surpassed 2,500 career assists.
The junior racked up 39 assists with 10 digs, two block assists, and a service ace in a 3-1 win at Transylvania Saturday. She followed that effort with 49 assists and 16 digs in a 3-1 non-league win over Washington & Lee.
The current HCAC leader in assists now sits at 2,545 assists for her Defiance career and is only 124 away from breaking the school record.
Defiance (16-5, 3-0 HCAC) will play host to Manchester and Franklin in league play this week.
