Morgan McKnight Earns UAA Volleyball Honor

Morgan McKnight Earns UAA Volleyball Honor

Emory University sophomore Morgan McKnight (Manassas, VA) has been named by the University Athletic Association as the Volleyball Co-Hitter of the Week following her performance at the Emory Classic.  It is the first time in her career that she has been selected for the honor.  Morgan shares the award with Julianne Malek of Washington University.

The 5-foot-10 McKnight earned Classic MVP honors after helping the Eagles to a 4-0 mark over the weekend,  averaging a team-high 4.09 kills over 11 sets of action and finishing with a hitting mark of .422 (45-7--90). She registered double-figure terminations and led the team in kills on three occasions. She enjoyed a pair of 13-kills outings, which led all players, against DeSales University and Chapman University. In the DeSales outing, she finished with a .480 attack percentage (13-1--25) and contributed nine digs.

So far this year, she has chalked up 10 or more successful attack attempts in six of her seven matches and ranks fourth among UAA players in kills average (3.32 kps).

The No. 5-ranked Eagles return to action this Friday and Saturday (Sept. 15-16) when they host the Emory Premier Invitational.
