Lizzie Kamp Named MIAA Player of the Week in Volleyball
Monday, October 11, 2010
For the second time in her collegiate career, Calvin College sophomore Lizzie Kamp has been named MIAA Player of the Week in volleyball. A native of Orland Park, Illinois, Kamp (Chicago Christian HS) had 32 kills for a hitting percentage of .411 for the week as Calvin won three straight matches to maintain its hold on first place in the MIAA.
In a key road matchup against Alma, Kamp had 13 kills and no errors in 26 attack attempts for a .500 hitting percentage, and added 14 digs and three blocks to lead the Knights to a sweep of the Scots.
She followed with nine kills in a three-set win over Adrian and 10 kills in a three-set win at Trine on Saturday. On the week, she was credited with 31 digs, four blocks, two aces and two assists.
Calvin (15-2 overall, 10-0 MIAA) returns to action on Wednesday when it travels to rival Hope for a 6:30 p.m. match.
Kamp is the fourth individual from Calvin to earn weekly player of the week honors from the MIAA this fall as older sister Rebecca Kamp has been a two-time MIAA Player of the Week, teammate Megan Rietema a two-time MIAA Specialty Player of the Week and teammate Renee DeHaan the MIAA Player of the Week once.
