Athens, Ohio - Ohio Volleyball ended the regular season by sweeping the MAC weekly awards for a third time this season. Kelly Lamberti was named the MAC East Offensive Player of the Week and Serena Warner earned the MAC West Defensive Player of the Week.
The sophomore duo swept the awards for the second time this season after winning both on September 4. Lamberti has won four MAC weekly awards, three this season, and this marks the second time Warner has been honored.
Lamberti led the team in kills this weekend, hitting over .380 in both matches as Ohio won the MAC regular-season title. She is second in the MAC in kills and points while also ranking fifth in aces.
After pacing the `Cats with 15 kills in a win at Buffalo, Lamberti finished with 21 kills and 13 digs for her 15th double-double of the season at Akron. The 21 kills against the Zips was her second-best offensive performance of the MAC season (24 in five sets at Toledo).
Warner led Ohio in blocks and was second on the team in point scoring this weekend. The sophomore had her best offensive performance of the MAC season with nine kills at Buffalo, hitting .533. She then had one of her best defensive performances with six block assists against the Zips.
Warner continues to lead the league in blocking with an average of 1.33 per set and ranks third with a .308 hitting percentage. After her performances this weekend from the service line (six aces), she has moved to fourth in the league in that category.
