September 19, 2018

HUNTINGTON - Marshall University volleyball players collected a pair of Conference USA weekly honors Monday.

Marshall junior Amber Weber was chosen as the C-USA Defensive Player of the Week and Gabrielle Coulter was named as the C-USA Freshman of the Week.

Weber recorded 91 digs in three matches to earn all-tournament recognition at Bowling Green. Coulter had 128 assists in the tournament.

“Amber had a pretty special weekend (Bowling Green Invitational) and certainly deserved the all-tournament accolade,” Marshall Herd head coach Mitch Jacobs said in a release. “Gabby has been getting better every weekend. It’s great to see these two get honored and represent the team.”

Marshall returns to the court at 6 p.m. Friday in Cam Henderson Center for its conference opener against Charlotte.
