RICHMOND, Va. – VCU freshman Sahbria McLetchie (San Antonio, Texas) has been named Atlantic 10 Conference Rookie of the Week for the first time.
The 5-foot-10 outside hitter led VCU to a 3-1 week, including a team championship at Wake Forest's Deacon Classic. McLetchie averaged 4.13 kills and 0.87 blocks per set and hit .227 for the Rams as they defeated Hampton, Hofstra and Wake Forest.
McLetchie's 21 kills in VCU's 3-1 win over Hampton were the most by Rams' freshman since 2007. She added 20 kills, six blocks and four service aces when VCU toppled host Wake Forest 3-1 on Saturday.
For the season, McLetchie is averaging 2.90 kills, 1.22 digs and 0.60 blocks per set for the 6-8 Rams. Her 145 total kills lead the team.
McLetchie and VCU return to action on Friday, Sept. 25 when they kick off conference play at Rhode Island.
