Player of the Week - October 25, 2010

Each Monday during the fall, one collegiate player originally reported as a recruit by AVSR is named AVSR Player of the Week for her cumulative performance during the current season.

Week #9:Izabela Grot

Tulane University
Sophomore; 6'2"Left/Right-Side Hitter
Home:Krakow, Poland
Reported by AVSR:May 2007

Last week:
• Tulane's top attacker drilled 40 kills at .337 efficiency (3.3 kills/set) in wins over Marshall 3-2 and East Carolina 3-0 and a road loss at Southern Mississippi 3-1.
• Leads the Green Wave this season in kills (251) and kills per set (3.14) while ranking second in hitting percentage (.267).

Excerpt from original AVSR report:"Big, powerful net force with great natural strength but mainly low-intensity physical training. Can play LH or RH immediately, possibly at six rotations. Hits hard easily with a heavy arm and a smooth, clean swing, but transition and approach speed are average. .... Attends an elite high school and plans to pursue a law degree." [May 2007]
