Mansfield, Mass. – Dean College freshman sensation Sadie Homer (North Easton, Mass.) has been named the New England Collegiate Conference (NECC) women's volleyball rookie of the week it was announced on Monday.
Homer was a key cog in the Bulldogs' 4-0 week as her assist totals skyrocketed up the conference standings and Dean improved to 2-0 in league play.
She had the best performance of her career in a thrilling 3-2 come-from-behind win over Massachusetts Maritime, ending that match with 26 assists and 25 digs.
Then in a 3-1 win on the road at Bay Path on Thursday, Homer handed out a career-best 30 assists to go along with 12 digs – her third straight double-double and fifth of the season.
On Saturday, as the Bulldogs rolled past Pine Manor in a pair of 3-0 wins, she ended with 12 assists and six service aces and then 11 assists and five service aces.
Now riding the aforementioned four-match winning streak, Dean returns to action on Wednesday with a home contest with Mount Holyoke. First serve is slated for 7:00 PM.
