The North Atlantic Conference (NAC) announced today that SUNY Cobleskill sophomore MacKenzie Larson, Winterset, Iowa, Winterset High School, has been named NAC Volleyball Rookie-of-the-Week for the week ending on October 25, 2021. This marks the second time this season the Iowa native has earned conference player-of-the-week honors.   

The sophomore outside hitter played a major role in the team’s taking two-of-three defeating the visiting Spartans of Castleton University 3-1 by set scores of 25-20, 25-12, 15-25 and 25-22 prior to splitting a pair of North Atlantic Conference (NAC) contests at SUNY Delhi in Delhi, N.Y. on Sunday losing the host Broncos in the opener 3-1 by scores of 15-25, 25-21, 12-25 and 21-25 before defeating the Wildcats of the SUNY Polytechnic Institute 26-24, 23-25, 17-25, 25-12 and 17-15 to improve to 9-12 overall including a 4-4 record in NAC action. 

In 13 sets played Larson averaged: 2.08 kills, 3.84 digs, 3.31 points and 1.1 service aces per game during the week.  

For the year the Winterset High School alumnus is averaging: 2.71 kills, 3.81 digs, 3.94 points and 1.04 service aces per set while posting a .127 hitting percentage. Larson is currently ranked second among NCAA Division III programs in aces per set.   

Fighting Tiger Head Coach Scott Hill feels that the Winterset, Iowa native fills a number of roles for the Fighting Tigers on many levels.    

“Even though MacKenzie is a sophomore, she has been a leader on and off the court since she arrived. She is someone her teammates trust and count on during matches both offensively and defensively. MacKenzie is a dependable hitter that can find a hole in the blocks and is able to produce points on offense and defensively she is one of our most consistent passers we have who is always in position to make a great pass from either a serve or a hit.” 

The Fighting Tigers will next be in action on Tuesday October 26 when they travel to Utica, N.Y. to face the Pioneers of Utica College for a non-conference match beginning at 7:00 p.m.
