Tuesday, September 12, 2006

Southeast Missouri State outside hitter Jessica Koeper has been named the Ohio Valley Conference offensive player of the week for volleyball.

Koeper earned all-tournament honors at the Memphis Invitational over the weekend, averaging 5.94 kills per game and producing double-double efforts in all four matches as the Redhawks won the tournament with a 4-0 record.

Koeper, a senior from Jackson High School, posted a career-high 28 kills along with a season-best 21 digs against Arkansas-Little Rock. Koeper tallied 23 kills and 19 digs against Louisiana Tech, then had 28 kills and 10 digs against Lipscomb.

Senior setter Jamie Baumstark was the tournament MVP, while freshman Taylor Harbster joined Keoper on the all-tourney squad.

The Redhawks (5-6) play at Southern Illinois-Carbondale at 7 p.m. tonight.
