People are starting to figure out what we here in Knoxville have known for awhile — Erica Treiber is a really good volleyball player! For the third time in as many days, Treiber has been recognized for her achievements. Today, it’s the American Volleyball Coaches Association naming her the National Player of the Week!
“Treiber helped lead the Volunteers to a pair of SEC wins to conclude the regular season…Nailed 10 kills and recorded five blocks in the upset sweep of rival Florida…It was their first victory over the Gators since 2012 and their first sweep since 1988…Followed that performance with 16 kills on a blistering .481 hitting with a career-high 11 blocks…It also marked her first career double-double…She is the only player in a power-5 conference to rank in the top-five in hitting percentage, blocks per set, and aces per set in their respective conference.
Treiber is the fourth player in program history to be named a Sports Imports/AVCA Player of the Week. The most recent previous recipient was Kelsey Robinson back on October 11, 2011.”
