BYU volleyball: Sander named Off the Block National Outside Attacker of the Week

Senior outside hitter Brenden Sander was named the Off the Block National Outside Attacker of the Week, the organization announced Monday.

In a four-set road win at UC San Diego, Sander collected a match-high 15 kills on a .419 clip to go with a career-high 11 digs for just his second-ever double-double. He also added a match-high three aces and four blocks (tying a season high) in the win.

Then, in a four-set road win at USC, Sander blasted a career-high 23 kills, besting his previous career high by four kills, in addition to a career-high five service aces, which is good for sixth-most all-time in BYU rally-scoring era history.

The wins helped the Cougars improve to 8-4 overall and start 1-0 in Mountain Pacific Sports Federation play.

The Off the Block National Outside Attacker of the Week Award recognizes the outside hitter who had the best performance in NCAA Division I-II men’s volleyball during the previous week.

Royce Hinton is the men’s and women’s volleyball sports information director for BYU Athletic Communications.
