Hansen, Grubbs earn weekly SEC honors

Congratulations to Sedona Hansen and Tessa Grubbs on earning SEC recognition this week!

Hansen was named the SEC Player of the Week and Setter of the Week. This is her second time being honored by the conference. She was named Freshman of the Week on October 2016. Hansen is the third Lady Vol to get the “Player of the Week” designation since the league added it in 2015. From the announcement: “Tennessee’s Sedona Hansen, a senior from Wrightwood, Calif., was named MVP of the Tennessee Classic after posting 105 assists (11.57 per set) over three victories. Hansen helped her team post a .399 hitting percentage for the tournament. She tallied her fourth double-double of the season against Georgia Southern with 35 assists and 10 digs in the three-set victory.”

Grubbs was named the SEC Offensive Player of the Week. She previously won the award twice last season. From the announcement: “Tennessee’s Tessa Grubbs, a senior outside hitter from Tega Cay, S.C., averaged 5.39 points and 5.00 kills per set and posted a .415 hitting percentage in a 3-0 week for the Lady Volunteers. Grubbs closed out the Tennessee Classic with a career-high .600 hitting percentage against North Dakota State with 16 kills and just one error in the match.”
