DeMarchi Named GLIAC North Player of the Week

BAY CITY, Mich. – Michigan Tech freshman setter, Laura DeMarchi, was named the GLIAC North Division Player of the Week on Monday (Oct. 30) after leading the Huskies' offense in two 3-1 GLIAC wins over the weekend at Saginaw Valley State (Oct. 27) and Lake Superior State (Oct. 28).

DeMarchi, a native of Milan, Italy, set the offense in seven sets, tallying 76 assists averaging 10.9 assists per set. She recorded 11 kills at an impressive attack percentage of .579 with zero errors. DeMarchi also chipped in 16 digs and served four aces. She was an asset at the net, recording a solo block and two block assists to advance the Huskies to their seventh straight GLIAC win.

"Laura has proven to be one of the top setters in the region and has established herself as the most productive freshman in the GLIAC so far this season," said Tech volleyball coach Matt Jennings. "Her game is so well rounded and we saw that again this weekend, especially Friday night at Saginaw. Laura's court presence is unmistakable and a big part of any success we've experienced this year. She's had a lot of great performances this season and its nice to see her get recognized by the conference for her efforts. We're proud of Laura and grateful for the hard work and toughness she brings to the team every day."

In the GLIAC, DeMarchi is No. 1 in assists per set (11.84) and No. 7 in service aces per set (0.36). She leads all GLIAC setters in assists, assists per set, digs per set, aces per set, and hitting percentage. DeMarchi sits at No. 5 in the NCAA Division II rankings in assists per set as well and currently holds the second most digs to date on the Tech team behind senior Elle Heinonen.

DeMarchi was also named to the All-Tournament Team at the Midwest Regional Crossover Tournament and the Hillsdale Tournament. She is the second Tech volleyball player this season to be honored as the player of the week after MacAulay Petersen was honored on October 2.

The Huskies, as a team, are No. 8 in the nation in assists per set (13.63), No. 12 in kills per set (14.19) and No. 18 in hitting percentage (.254), leading the GLIAC in alll categories.

Tech is in a tie with Northern Michigan for second place in the GLIAC standings and travels to Marquette for a 5 p.m. match against the Wildcats Saturday in the final road match of the regular season. The Huskies are 16-8 overall and 10-3 in the GLIAC.
