An outside attacker who helped Long Island extend its winning streak to three matches is now earning a college men’s volleyball award.
Off the Block announced Monday that outside attacker Caden Satterfield was selected as the Off the Block Independent Teams Player of the Week.
Satterfield led all players with a season-high 20 kills on a .621 attack percentage in a sweep against Edward Waters on Wednesday. The outside attacker also had 13 kills on a .346 attack percentage and six digs as Long Island beat Sacred Heart in five games on Friday for the first-year program’s first win against an EIVA school.
The 11 independent teams in NCAA Division I-II men’s volleyball this season are Alderson Broaddus, American International, Daemen, D’Youville, Fairleigh Dickinson Limestone, Lincoln Memorial, Long Island, Maryville Queens and Tusculum.
Off the Block determines the Independent Teams Player of the Week based on a variety of factors, including a player’s individual performance and how a player’s team fared during the week.
The winner of the Independent Teams Player of the Week is unveiled every week during the regular season on the Off the Block website, offtheblockblog.com.
