MSU's Casey Fletcher Wins LSC Defensive Player Of The Week

Midwestern State's Casey Fletcher garnered Lone Star Conference Defensive Player of the Week honors September 9th when the league announced its weekly awards.

The senior from Eddy played a key role while helping the Mustangs to a 3-1 record in the season opening Hampton Inn-vitational.

Fletcher, who leads the LSC with 6.71 digs per set, recorded a career high 36 digs in a five-set win over Colorado State-Pueblo in the season opener.

She followed the effort with a 29-dig performance in a four-set victory over Fort Lewis then closed the weekend with a pair of 20-dig efforts against Southwestern Oklahoma State and Arkansas Tech.

Fletcher's play helped the Mustangs limit the opposition to a .143 team attack percentage.

Tarleton State freshman Hailey Roberts earned top offensive honors after posting 20 kills in three of the TexAnns' five matches, while Angelo State sophomore Alexa Johnson was named setter of the week.

Midwestern State hits the road to face Dallas Baptist Tuesday at night at Burg Center before returning to D.L. Ligon Coliseum to take on Tarleton State Friday at 5 p.m. The Mustangs battled Angelo State and Harding (Ark.) Saturday afternoon under the dome at noon and 5:30 p.m.
