Andrews named MAC Player of Week

Bowling Green State University freshman middle blocker Jessica Andrews was named the Mid-American Conference East Defensive Player of the Week. This is Andrews’ first time receiving the recognition.

Over the weekend, Andrews was a force at the net for the Falcons during the Hampton Inn Invitational.

Andrews began the weekend with four block assists against both Northern Kentucky and No. 22 Western Kentucky.

However, against DePaul, Andrews nearly broke two block records. Against the Blue Demons, Andrews logged three solo blocks and nine block assists for 12 total blocks in a four-set match.

Andrews’ nine block assists as well as her 12 total blocks both came just two shy of tying the program record for blocks in a four-set match. Andrews was named to the All-Tournament Team for her performance.
