SPRINGFIELD, Ohio – Elizabeth Nicole Sicking (Sinclair) and Bobby Diamond (Columbus State) were named the OCCAC Volleyball Players of the Week on Tuesday (Sept. 3), both adding to their plentiful collection of conference weekly awards corralled as freshmen in 2018.

Elizabeth Nicole Sicking (5-11/FR – Fairfield H.S./Hamilton, OH) racked up 114 kills and 82 digs last week. She posted per set averages of 4.53 points, 3.93 kills, 2.83 digs, .41 blocks and .34 aces during a seven-match week for the Tartan Pride. Sicking tallied double-digit kills in all seven contests, including a 28-kill effort in Sinclair’s five-set win over Muskegon Community College. This marks her sixth career OCCAC Player of the Week recognition after snagging half of the 10 laurels presented in 2018.
