Volleyball Player from Kewanee Earns Monmouth College First Conference Honor
It didn't take long for the Midwest Conference to notice Monmouth College's sophomore middle hitter Claire Hermie (Kewanee, Ill./Wethersfield).

Hermie, a business major, was all business at last weekends Aurora Invitational and was named the MWC's volleyball Performer of the Week. The 5-foot-11 powerhouse was nearly unstoppable in the four-game tournament, hitting at a .394 clip. Her dozen kills against Calumet College of St. Joe on Friday keyed a 3-0 sweep. She wrapped up the weekend with a 10 kill performance Saturday in a 3-2 win over North Central College. For the weekend, Hermie recorded 30 kills with just four errors. She also had six service aces and played in all 14 sets at Aurora.
