Spiegelberg Named CVU National Player of the Week

MANHATTAN, Kan. Kansas State setter Stacey Spiegelberg was named the Collegiate Volleyball Update National Player of the Week, in an announcement on Tuesday afternoon. It is the first national weekly honor for a Wildcat since Sept. 27, 1999, when Dawn Cady earned the AVCA National Player of the Week.


For the week, Spiegelberg tallied 95 assists (13.57 apg), 18 digs (2.57 dpg), 10 kills (1.43 kpg), nine service aces (1.29 sapg) and seven blocks (1.00 bpg). Kansas State hit .309 for the week with 113 kills, registered 27 total team blocks and tallied 24 service aces.


In Wednesday’s 3-1 win in Lubbock, Spiegelberg dished out a match-high 58 assists, tallied 10 digs, recorded a match- and career-high five service aces, tallied five kills on a .556 hitting percentage with zero attack errors and added in four blocks. It was the 11th double-double of the season for the junior from Overland Park, Kan., and the 20th of her career.


In Saturday’s 3-0 win over Kansas in Ahearn Field House, Spiegelberg dished out 37 assists, registered eight digs, jumped into the attack herself with five kills on a .500 hitting percentage, dropped in four service aces and aided the defense with three blocks. 


During the week, she became just the third player in the 32-year history of Kansas State volleyball to record a quadruple-triple for a season, surpassing triple digits in assists (1,415), digs (249), blocks (107) and kills (107).
