WSU VOLLEYBALL: Marcelina Glab Named Pac-12 Defensive Player Of The Week

We get so consumed with football around here most of the time that sometimes it's good for us to take a moment to stop and celebrate the accomplishments of other Cougars.

Like, for example, WSU volleyball player Marcelina Glab, whom the Pac-12 named their defensive player of the week. From the official news release:

WASHINGTON STATE junior Marcelina Glab (Watertown, S.D.) had a career-high 12 blocks to go with a career-best 13 kills and a .524 hitting percentage in the 3-1 win over CSU Bakersfield at the Air Force Academy Invitational. She helped the Cougars win the invitational title, the third of the year for the team, averaging 2.00 blocks and 3.59 points per set over the three match wins. She also contributed 2.36 kills per set and a .377 hitting percentage for the weekend. Glab leads the team with 1.59 bps, which ranks second in the Pac-12. Glab is the first Cougar to earn a weekly nod from the Conference since Sept. 8, 2009.

It's that last sentence that is really nice to read -- not that it's been so long, but that it's finally happened again. WSU has a proud volleyball history (I still remember the dominant teams that were there under Cindy Fredrick when I was in school), and it's good to see coach Jen Greeny (who was on those teams when I was in school) rebuilding the program.

The Cougs have a tough road ahead of them in the conference, but it's great to see them get off to such a good start. The Pac-12 schedule makers did them no favors, though, as they open the league schedule against Washington on Tuesday. You can catch that game on Pac-12 Networks.
