Lamecca Jefferson Named Conference Player of the Week
Sept. 29, 2003
Air Force outside hitter Lamecca Jefferson earned Mountain West Conference Volleyball Player of the Week honors, marking her first overall award.
A 6-1 junior from Beeville, Texas (A.C. Jones HS), Jefferson had a breakout performance last week and was instrumental in the Falcons' three-game sweep over New Mexico, which snapped an eight-match losing streak to the Lobos.
Jefferson entered the match hitting .258 on the year and averaging .32 blocks per game, but erupted for a career-high .619 hitting percentage (15-2-21) and six total blocks (2.0 blocks per game). Her 5.0 kills per game last week also eclipsed her 2.98 kpg season average. Air Force is off to a 10-4 start this season, including a perfect 4-0 mark at home.
