Following a dominate 4-1 record last week that included wins against No. 8 Georgetown College (3-0), No. 17 Viterbo (3-2) and Campbellsville at the Holiday Inn Express Classic and their WHAC season opener against Lourdes, the Cornerstone volleyball team received another conference weekly award. Junior middle hitter Cailie Johson was honored, for her second consecutive week, as the WHAC volleyball player of the week. The announcement was made by the conference this afternoon.
Johnson averaged 3.65 kills, 2.45 digs and 1.10 blocks per set during the five matches. Against the No. 8 and No. 17 teams in the nation, the middle hitter posted double digit kills and digs to aid in the Golden Eagles' victories. Johnson added 18 kills and 10 digs against Georgetown (8) while notching 15 kills and 18 digs against Viterbo (17). Highlighting the weekend, Johnson was also named to the Holiday Inn Express Classic All-Tournament team.
