Florida's Rachael Kramer takes home AVCA Player of the Week honors

  Kramer had a career-high 20 kills against Nebraska this past weekend.

GAINESVILLE, Fla. – Florida sophomore middle blocker Rachael Kramer picked up a pair of national honors Tuesday, earning both the American Volleyball Coaches Association and espnW National Player of the Week awards.

Kramer, also the SEC Player of the Week, tallied 31 kills, including a career-high 20 against No. 5 Nebraska, and hit .549 in Florida's victories over No. 1 Texas and the Cornhuskers. The Phoenix, Ariz. native only committed three attack errors in her 51 attempts. And Kramer's 20-kill outing against the Cornhuskers saw her hit a ridiculous .679 on 28 attacks.

Kramer joined Chloe Mann (Oct. 14, 2012 against Auburn) as the only other Gator since 1998 to hit over .675 and record at least 20 kills. Kramer is also one of two players in the country this year with such a stat line in a match.

The espnW story also recognized the rowdy Florida crowd from last Friday (Aug. 25) in its "Numbers of Note" segment. The attendance of 7,523 was a school record for a standalone volleyball match and the highest in the nation by over 700 fans last week.

Florida heads to San Juan, Puerto Rico this weekend for matches against NC State (Sept. 2) and No. 16 North Carolina (Sept. 3). Both matches start at 8:30 p.m., and FloVolleyball will provide live streaming.
