For the second time this year, Westmont libero Kami Troesh has been named the Golden State Athletic Conference Volleyball Defender of the Week.

In two three-set matches last week, Troesh tallied 22 serve receptions and 28 digs to help the Warriors extend their overall record to 17-0, including a 6-0 conference mark.

At Vanguard (5-12, 2-2) last Tuesday, Troesh produced eight serve receptions and 14 digs. Then against #13 Biola (13-7, 4-2) on Saturday night, the senior from Newport Beach added 14 serve reception and another 14 digs.

On the season, Troesh has tallied 298 digs and leads the GSAC in digs per game at 5.23. She has a serve reception percentage of .961 with a total of 223 receptions.

Troesh’s defensive prowess has helped Westmont to its best start in program history. With 55 percent of the regular season in the books, the #3 Warriors have yet to lose.

A solid pass from an opponent’s serve or attack not only keeps the ball in play, but allows the Warriors’ offense to exercise all of its potent offensive weapons. Troesh’s control of the first touch has allowed the Warriors to produce a team attack percentage of .264, which ranks first in the GSAC and 11th in the NAIA.

Westmont is in action only once this week, hosting Hope International (9-5, 4-1) in Murchison Gymnasium on Saturday night at seven o’clock.
