NEW CONCORD, OHIO, September 22 -
The Ohio Athletic Conference has announced that Muskingum College senior Jessica McKenzie has been named OAC Volleyball Player of the Week.

On the season, McKenzie leads the Black & Magenta with 173 kills, a .448 hitting percentage and 146 total blocks. The Muskies are currently 16-2 overall, which is their best start since 1999 when they opened the year 17-1 and advanced to the NCAA Division III Championship Final Four.
