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

Player of the Week:Martyna Gluchowicz

Cowley County Community College (Kansas, NJCAA II)
Sophomore, 6'1"Opposite / Outside Hitter
Home:Krzyzanowice, Poland
Reported by AVSR Global:January 2011
See Martyna Gluchowicz’s bio at the Cowley College web site.

Last week’s action:

• Led by All-America star Gluchowicz, Cowley pushed its winning streak to 50 matches, adding five last week. It's the longest current undefeated mark among all colleges and universities.
• The Tigers won last year’s NJCAA Division II title. Their last loss was in September 2011.
• Gluchowicz, a left-hander, has been Cowley’s six-rotation leader since arriving as a freshman. She’s averaging 3.6 kills per set this year, swinging at .297 efficiency.

Excerpt from original AVSR Global report (2011):

“Ready to be an immediate starter in upper/mid-Division I. Recruitable as a primary passer, but she’s best at the net. .... Excellent English skills for a non-native speaker, despite mediocre academics in other areas.”

Special Mention:Gabriela Nieto Gomez

Midland College (Texas, NJCAA I)
Freshman, 6'1"Middle Blocker
Home:Zapopan, Mexico
Reported by AVSR Global:January 2012

Last week’s action:

• Nieto Gomez led Midland over league rival Western Texas and into first place of the Western Junior College conference. Midland stands at 18-6 this year, 5-1 in the WJCAC.
• The freshman has been Midland’s top blocker and most efficient hitter all season. She’s averaging 1.1 blocks per set and hitting at .346 efficiency.

Excerpt from original AVSR Global report (2012):

“Perceptive player and powerful athlete. .... Can play LH or RH in the top third of Division I or MB in mid-Division I. Best potential might be as an outside terminator. .... Elite student, but English skills are elementary.”
