  Ingram led the Racers with 74 kills over the weekend, averaging 5.29 per set and hitting .274.

Murray State's Scottie Ingram has been named this week's Sports Imports/AVCA National Player of the Week for her performance over the weekend at the Fort Wayne Invitational.

Ingram, who was also named the ADIDAS OVC Player of the Week on Monday, becomes the first Racer since Abbi Giu in 2002 to earn AVCA national honors. Ingram was named the Most Valuable Player of the Fort Wayne Invitational after leading Murray State to a 3-0 record.

Ingram led the Racers with 74 kills over the weekend, averaging 5.29 per set and hitting .274. She recorded at least 22 kills in each match at the invite and tallied a career-high 30 kills and hit .309 in MSU's comeback win over Ball State. Ingram also averaged 2.70 digs per set and recorded three double-doubles to begin the season.

Ingram and the rest of the Racers return to action this weekend as they travel to Eugene, Ore., for the Oregon Classic Sept. 2 and 3 where they will face Oregon, UC Davis and San Diego State.
