Kearstin Davis named PSAC Eastern Division Volleyball Athlete of the Week

Shippensburg University sophomore Kearstin Davis was named the inaugural Pennsylvania State Athletic Conference (PSAC) Eastern Division Volleyball Athlete of the Week on Tuesday afternoon by the league office after a 2-2 opening weekend for the Raiders at the Tony Banner Memorial Volleyball Tournament.

In 15 sets played, Davis totaled 11 aces, 114 assists, 32 digs, and one block. She was crucial to facilitating SU’s offense as her assists led to five different players recording 16 or more kills throughout the weekend.

Davis had a particularly strong performance in Saturday’s sweep of Lake Erie as she served a career high of seven aces—the second most in a match by a Raider in the last six seasons. In the same match, she also contributed 23 assists to pass the 1,000 career assists milestone. For her performance, Davis was named to the All-Tournament team.

This marks the second career PSAC weekly award for Davis, having received the honor once before in her freshman season.
