Lynch Named Student-Athlete of the Week

MORGANTOWN, W.Va. – After helping the Mountaineers improve their overall record to 7-5 on the year, senior middle blocker Briana Lynch of the West Virginia University volleyball team has been named the WVU Student-Athlete of the Week, presented by University Apartments.

Lynch, the Mountaineers’ lone selection on the 2020 Preseason All-Big 12 Team, was a force to be reckoned with at the net last week, turning in a team-high .391 hitting efficiency and averaging 1.50 blocks per set in the two-match series against Iowa State.

The Johns Creek, Georgia, native totaled a team-high 14 kills on 32 attacks for a .344 hitting percentage in the squad’s five set-win on Friday. She also led the team’s blocking efforts with seven block assists in the match, two blocks shy of a career high. Lynch followed up that performance with five more blocks and eight kills on Saturday, registering one error on 14 attacks for a game-high hitting percentage of .500 in the sweep over Iowa State.

Overall, she recorded 28.0 points on the weekend, averaging 3.50 points per set.

With the wins, WVU has won a program-best seven Big 12 Conference matches and earned a season sweep over Iowa State for the first time in program history.
