Coastal’s Skryd named BSC volleyball player of the week

ccuvolley-14skyrdSenior setter Sam Skryd of the Coastal Carolina women’s volleyball team has been named the Big South Conference Choice Hotels Player of the Week for matches played Sept. 1-7, the league announced on Monday.

Skryd’s Player of the Week honor follows a terrific performance at the Jacksonville Marriott Classic where the Chanticleers were crowned tournament champions with wins over Florida Atlantic, Jacksonville and North Florida. Skryd was additionally named the tournament’s MVP.

The weekly honor is the first for Skryd this season, and the second for a Chant as Leah Hardeman was named Freshman of the Week on Sept. 1.

Skryd closed the three-match tournament with a team-leading 135 assists, averaging 10.39 assists per set. Her 53 assists against Florida Atlantic and 52 assists against North Florida marked the second and third times this season that Skryd has topped 50 assists in a match. The Naperville, Ill., native also led the Chants in a three-set sweep over Jacksonville with a .833 hitting percentage, notching five kills on six attempts. Skryd finished the weekend with 11 kills, 23 digs and five blocks.

Through 26 sets this season Skryd has amassed 249 assists (9.58 per set) and is on pace to top her career high of 836 assists (8.89 per set) which she set as a sophomore in 2011 in her first season as a Chanticleer. Skryd surpassed the 1,000 assist career mark (as a Chanticleer) in Coastal’s first match of the season against UNC Wilmington, and is just 43 away from cracking Coastal’s top-10 career leaders in assists.

In addition to Skryd’s MVP honors this past weekend, Hardeman was named all-tournament for her performance in Jacksonville. The freshman had two double-doubles over the weekend, tallying 18 kills and 14 digs against Florida Atlantic before recording 17 kills and 10 digs against North Florida. Hardeman led the Chants’ attack, averaging 3.92 kills per set with a .281 hitting percentage to go along with her five aces, 33 digs and six blocks.

Skryd and the Chants are set to play their 2014 home-opener this Friday, Sept. 12, when they host Tennessee, Kennesaw State and Loyola Maryland for the 2014 Coastal Carolina Invitational. The full tournament schedule is listed below . Admission to the tournament is free of charge for all games.
