BUFFALO WILD WING STUDENT-ATHLETE OF THE WEEK – Caris Myles, Volleyball
Iona College volleyball sophomore Caris Myles was named the Buffalo Wild Wings Student-Athlete of the Week after earning MAAC Offensive Player of the Week honors for her performance in the Gaels' two conference wins this past weekend.
Myles ran a stellar offensive attack for the Gaels in wins over Manhattan and Saint Peter's. The second-year setter averaged 14.43 assists per sets with 101 helpers in seven sets played. She also posted 22 digs and hit .364 with five kills in 11 attempts. The 3.14 digs per game was third-best on the squad.
Against the Jaspers on Saturday, Myles recorded a career-high 59 assists in a four-set win and missed a double-double by just one dig. The next day vs. the Peacocks, she recorded her team-best fourth double-double with 42 assists and 13 digs.
More than 40% of her set attempts on the weekend were converted for kills. Iona's offense averaged more than 17 kills per set in its 2-0 week.
