Big Rapids, Mich. - Senior All-American Allyson Cappel (Tinley Park, Ill./Lincoln-Way North) of the Ferris State University women's volleyball squad has been chosen as this week's Great Lakes Intercollegiate Athletic Conference (GLIAC) North Division Player of the Week.
Cappel led the 16th-ranked Bulldogs to a perfect weekend as FSU topped Northern Michigan and Michigan Tech by identical 3-0 scores in Big Rapids. She produced a team-high 26 kills along with 21 digs, five blocks and four aces in the two contests for 33.5 total points or an average of 5.6 points per set.
Cappel also hit an impressive .532 for the weekend, including a .625 figure in Friday's 3-0 win over NMU when she had 10 kills, eight digs, two blocks and an ace. She came back on Saturday to notch a match-high 16 kills with 13 digs, three blocks and three aces while playing a leading role in FSU's 3-0 win over the Huskies in a first-place showdown in the GLIAC North.
The senior standout helped the Bulldogs stretch their win streak to five in a row and all five have come in straight-sets.
FSU will visit West Michigan rival Grand Valley State on Friday, Oct. 11, for a 7 p.m. (ET) league encounter in Allendale before taking on Davenport on Saturday, Oct. 12, starting at 2 p.m. (ET) in Caledonia.
