Jenny Li Selected NEWMAC Athlete of the Week

CAMBRIDGE, Mass. – Following a 2-0 week for MIT, Jenny Li was named the New England Women’s and Men’s Athletic Conference (NEWMAC) Women’s Volleyball Athlete of the Week. The junior outside and middle hitter averaged 3.29 kills, 1.57 digs, 0.43 blocks, and a .463 hitting percentage.

Li posted six kills on 11-errorless hitting attempts for a .545 percentage and one block in a sweep of Wheaton College. She then recorded the first double-double of her career on career-high totals of 17 kills and 11 digs to go along with two blocks in a 3-1 win over Rivier College.

The Engineers, currently at 18-4 on the year and 5-0 in conference play, look to extend their seven-match winning streak against NEWMAC foe WPI on Tuesday night.
