Player of the Week: August 26, 2013

Each Monday during the indoor and sand seasons, one player originally reported as a recruit by AVSR Global is named Player of the Week for an exceptional performance.

2013 Week #1: Jelena Cobanovic

Northeastern Junior College (Colorado), NJCAA Division I.
Sophomore, 5'6" Libero.
Reported by AVSR Global in 2012.
Home: Novi Sad, Serbia.

Last Week’s Action:

• Cobanovic led Northeastern with 51 digs in four dominant wins. The Plainswomen beat Colby, Sheridan, Williston State, and Eastern Wyoming at the North Platte Invitational.
• NJC is bidding to regain a Top 20 ranking after slipping from the nation’s elite last year.
• It’s Cobanovic’s first season at Northeastern after a year at Southwestern Christian College. She’s been the starting libero instantly for both teams.
• Two other Serbian liberos are on American teams after being reported by AVSR Global. Aleksandra Petronijevic is a junior at Memphis. Milica Stamenic is a Clemson freshman.

Excerpt from 2012 AVSR Global report on Cobanovic:

“Ready to play libero in upper/mid-Division I. … Sharp reflexes and light, efficient movement. … Started playing at age nine. Competed as a LH and RH during early years.”
