Marmolejo Named CGASPORTS.COM Athlete of the Week

Coast Guard Academy senior libero Samantha Marmolejo has been named the CGASPORTS.COM Athlete of the Week as she led the way with 64 digs and four aces as the Bears won two of three matches to improve to 8-3 on the season.

The Bears dropped their first match of the week at New England Women’s and Men’s Athletic Conference (NEWMAC) rival Springfield 3-1 on Tuesday. Coast Guard became just the third team this season to win a game against the Pride, who are a perfect 10-0 on the season. Marmolejo had a team-high 18 dig in the loss.

Coast Guard beat Clark and Keene State by scores of 3-1 on Saturday to close out the week. Marmolejo finished with 46 digs including a season-high 29 in the win over NEWMAC foe Clark.

Marmolejo is third all-time at the Academy with 1,448 digs, just 17 shy of Cassie Janssen (’97), who is second and 201 behind the all-time leader Jessica Anderson (’10), who has 1,649 digs.

The Bears are back in action when they host Smith on Tuesday night at 7 p.m.
