Player of the Week: September 24, 2012

Each Monday in the fall, one player originally reported as a recruit by AVSR Global is named AVSR Global Player of the Week for her performance of the past week and current season.

Player of the Week:Marta Machos

Towson University
Senior, 6'2"Opposite
Home:Tomaszow Lubelski, Poland
Reported by AVSR Global:July 2008
See Marta Machos’ bio at the Towson University web site.

Last week’s action:
• Drilled 41 kills at .493 efficiency as Towson defeated Delaware, Penn and La Salle. Machos was named the Colonial league’s Offensive Player of the Week.
• The Tigers are now 14-3 for the season after winning seven consecutive matches.
• Machos is hitting at a .343 rate this year, averaging 2.92 kills per set.

Excerpt from original AVSR Global report (2008):
“Explosive attacker, dynamic athlete and instinctive, all-purpose player. She's somewhat wild and unstructured, but she can be a freshman starter in upper/mid-Division I, and she has the physical talents to become a force for a Top 30 team.”

Update:Eseta Maka, last week’s Player of the Week

College of Southern Idaho
Sophomore, 6'1"Middle Blocker
Home:Wellington, New Zealand
Reported by AVSR Global:October 2009
See Eseta Maka’s bio and statistics at the CSI web site.

Last week’s action:
• Maka dominated again as a blocker, and Southern Idaho extended its record to 17-1.
• CSI, ranked fourth in the NJCAA Division I, defeated No. 7 Salt Lake and No. 16 Snow.
• Maka is averaging 1.4 blocks per set this year while attacking at .393 efficiency.

Excerpt from original AVSR Global report (2009):
“Has a rare combination of fast-twitch muscle, massive power, and sharp instincts at the net. .... Her backwards approach violates normal recruiting standards, but she's a special athlete and relatively new player with big potential to be a collegiate force.”
