Dayton, Ohio---Meg Reineke (New Knoxville/New Knoxville, Ohio), a sophomore outside hitter for the Sinclair College (7-4) volleyball team, has been named the Ohio Community College Athletic Conference (OCCAC) Player of the Week for matches between Sept. 5-11.
Last week, Reineke helped lead her team to a 4-0 record, including wins over Oakland Community College, Columbus State Community College, Mercyhurst North East Community College and Lansing Community College.
In the wins over Oakland and Columbus State, Reineke recorded 22 kills apiece. She followed that up with nine more against Mercyhurst North East and 13 against Lansing. In addition to that, she totaled 95 digs in those four matches, including 38 against Oakland and 36 against Columbus State. She also had three blocks, four assists and three aces.
