Senior outside hitter/libero Mallory Salis earned herself Mid-American Conference East Offensive Player of the Week for a second straight week following a pair of strong performances this weekend, which Ohio split.

On Friday, Salis tallied up 23 kills and five digs in their 3-1 loss to Toledo. She also recorded a service ace as well as a solo block. From there it only got better.

In Saturday’s come-from-behind victory against Ball State, Salis achieved a career-high 25 kills, totaling 48 for the weekend. She also led the team that game with 22 digs and a match-high three service aces.

The Bobcats will look to capitalize on their recent victory when they come back to Athens Friday to take on Northern Illinois, who remains undefeated in the conference.
