Long Beach, Calif. - Sophomore middle blocker Alma Serna was named the Big West Player of the Week as announced by the conference office on Monday. Serna is the first 49er to win the weekly award this season.
In the first week of conference play, Serna helped lead the 49ers to a 2-0 record as Long Beach State defeated both Cal Poly and UC Santa Barbara at home.
On Friday against the Mustangs, Serna set a career high with 16 kills and tied her career best with six digs in a 3-1 victory. The next night against UCSB, she finished with a team-high 11 kills on .611 hitting, making no errors as the 49ers swept the Gauchos to remain unbeaten in Big West play.
Over the week, Serna made just three errors in 47 attempts and hit .511 with 27 kills, leading the 49ers in kills during both of Long Beach State's wins.
The honor is the first of Serna's career, and the first for Long Beach State volleyball this season.
