YUMA, AZ – For the third time this season, middle blocker Maria del mar Guzman Franco of the Lady Matador Volleyball team has won the Division-One Player of the Week award.
“Maria had a great game against Pima in which she hit over .300,” said head coach Jason Smith. “She benefited from most teams in the conference only playing one game the previous week, you normally don’t see a player win this award after playing just one game.”
Guzman Franco helped the Lady Mats to a 1-0 record last week while recording 8 kills, 1 block, 1 ace along with 1 dig. This is the third time this season that she has been honored by the ACCAC, after winning player of the week back on September 9th and on September 30th.
Last week, the Lady Matadors defeated Pima by a final of 3-0. This week, AWC will be tested yet again as they host Scottsdale for the first time this season on Wednesday at “The House.” Following the Scottsdale game, the Lady Matadors hit the road for a meeting with the Yavapai RoughRiders Friday night in Prescott. Both matches are scheduled to begin at 7pm
