|Scots' Freshman Wins MWC Volleyball Honor
|Monmouth College freshman Chelsey Widdop (Reynolds, Ill./Rockridge) made quite a collegiate volleyball debut last week and was named the season's first Midwest Conference Performer of the Week.
Through the Fighting Scots' first four matches, Widdop - a 5-foot-9 hitter - is averaging 2.64 kills per set with a .286 percentage. She's also added in a team-high five sets by non-setters and leads the team with six ace serves.
Widdop is also doing the job defensively. Her 54 digs ranks her second on the team and her six blocks are third. She has either led, or tied for the lead in kills in every match this season. At last weekend's Monmouth Invitational, Widdop recorded a career-high 12 kills with a .440 percentage against Aurora. She was also named to the all-tournament team.
