Roughrider volleyball player Jasmine Solley has been selected as Player of the Week for efforts last week in matches against Scottsdale and Eastern Arizona, Yavapai College and the ACCAC announced Monday.
Solley is currently ranked 5th in the NJCAA with 325 digs and 30th with 4.17 digs per set. Despite Jasmine's 22 digs against Scottsdale on Wednesday the Roughriders lost the non-conference match 2-3 (25-23, 17-25, 25-23, 17-25, 10-15). However, Yavapai rebounded on the road in Thatcher and beat Eastern Arizona 3-1 (25-22, 22-25, 25-13, 26-24). Jasmine's defense was outstanding collecting 45 digs in only four sets.
For the week, Jasmine had only two reception errors in 33 reception attempts.
The Roughriders look to stay on top of the ACCAC standings with matches against Chandler-Gilbert on Wednesday (away) and Arizona Western on Friday (home).
