Volleyball senior Sarah Reaves earns Athlete of the Week


October 20, 2010

The Sun Devils bring down two top ten teams in the UCLA Bruins and the USC Trojans after fifteen-years of coming up short. Led by Senior Sarah Reaves, who is this week's athlete of the week. She had 11 kills, which catapulted ASU's .238 attack percentage and proved to be too much for the top ten programs to handle.

Sarah Reaves was unstoppable against the UCLA Bruins with her game changing four kills, as well as Sonja Markanovich who combined for .667 to help ASU with a 2-0 lead before the break. The Bruins had their backs against the wall and tried to rally back, but the Sun Devils remained composed scaling away in the end with a 26-24 victory.

In the other match against the Trojans, ASU's Sarah Reaves had six kills for a .312 attack percentage and she also contributed on the defensive side with four blocks. The Sun Devils took off with a victorious 25-23 score after 15 years of anticipation.

In the next contest the Sun Devils are set to face Washington and Washington State next Friday and Saturday in Seattle and Pullman, Wash.
