Jean named Player of the Week for second time in three weeks

WASHINGTON – For the second time in three weeks, Claudia Jean has been named the Landmark Conference Player of the Week, it was announced on Monday.  Jean had another strong week of play for the Cardinals, as they went 3-1 and clinched the No. 2 seed in the upcoming Landmark Conference Tournament.

Jean averaged 3.73 kills and 5.20 digs per set, while hitting .209 for the week.  She posted three double-doubles, beginning with 16 kills and 23 digs in a 3-1 win at Hood on Thursday evening.

The senior then totaled 18 kills and 32 digs vs. nationally ranked Juniata on Saturday, before closing out her week with 20 kills and 17 digs in a 3-1 win over Moravian.  That win gave CUA a 5-1 record within the Landmark Conference and clinched the No. 2 seed in the tournament.

Jean is currently sixth in the conference in kills with 230 total (2.91/set) and second in digs with 433 (5.48/set).

CUA’s five conference wins this season are its most since 2007.

Jean and her teammates are back in action on Saturday afternoon when the Cardinals take on Shenandoah (1 p.m.) and Roanoke (3 p.m.) in Roanoke, Va.
