Northwestern’s Fink, Wacker Claim NAIA Volleyball Honors

Makenzie Fink and Lacey Wacker were named the NAIA Volleyball National Players of the Week at their respective positions as announced by the national office.

Fink hit a team-best .420 and averaged 4.0 kills per set in leading the Red Raiders to wins over Dakota Wesleyan, York and 13th-ranked Jamestown. The junior hit over .400 and put down double figure kills in wins over DWU and Jamestown, including a match-high 16 kills in handing the Jimmies their first conference loss of the season.

Wacker put up 13.4 assists per set and directed a Red Raider offense that hit .306 in three wins last week. Wacker totaled 63 assists, the second most of her career, in her team’s 3-1 win over DWU. The junior then lofted up 38 assists in the Red Raiders 3-0 sweep over Jamestown.
