CORPUS CHRISTI – Micah Nolan has been named the GoIslanders.com Student-Athlete of the Week, presented by Pepsi. Nolan earned the award after becoming the first Islander to earn 1,500 digs in a career.
Nolan led the Islanders in digs during the week, picking up 17 against Nicholls on Thursday night, and following it up with another 17-dig performance on Saturday afternoon. In addition to the digs, Nolan added five service aces in the two matches.
She helped her team to two wins to get the Islanders off of a three-match losing streak and to get their 18th overall win and 10th Southland Conference win, both new highs in program history.
Next up for the Islanders will be a match against SFA in Nacogdoches tonight. After that final road match, the team will return home for the final two matches of the year against Lamar and McNeese State.
