Ball State University sophomore middle blocker Kelsey Brandl has been rewarded for her strong performance over the weekend.

Monday afternoon, the Mid-American Conference named Brandl as the MAC West Division Offensive Player of the Week.

In two games against MAC foes, Bowling Green State University and Miami University, Brandl posted 34 kills (a career-high 20 against Bowling Green), five service aces, eight blocks and five digs. Two of the digs came in the back row after Brandl served and contributed to a Ball State point.

The recognition from the MAC comes just a couple days after high praise from coach Dave Boos.

"We can't ask any more of Kelsey," Boos said. "She had four service aces and 14 kills for us. She's developed into an All-MAC player."

For the entire weekend, Brandl hit an impressive .448 to raise her average to .368 on the year. Brandl leads the MAC in hitting percentage by a wide margin as well. Through 38 sets, Brandl holds a .406 hitting percentage against MAC foes, ahead of the second place .383.
