| No Comments | No TrackBacks

There's no sophomore slump for Geneva's Lauren Wicinski.

The Northern Illinois University outside hitter heads into weekend matches at Ball State (Friday) and Toledo (Saturday) leading the nation in kills-per-set with a 5.40 average. Georgia Tech's Monique Mead ranks second in the category at 5.17.

Wicinski, the defending Mid-American Conference Player of the Year, and her teammates are averaging 15.15 kills-per-set, which also leads the country. Wicinski is third in the nation in aces-per-set at 0.62, which puts her No. 1 in points-per-set at 6.35.

Not surprisingly, NIU senior setter Kristin Hoffman from Batavia is faring well. She ranks second in the NCAA lists with an average of 12.34 assists-per-set.
