Carly Skjodt caps big week for Michigan with AVCA Player of the Week honors

  Skjodt helped the Wolverines knock off two consecutive AVCA Top-25 programs for the first time since 2015.

Just one day after being named the Big Ten Conference player of the week, junior outside hitter Carly Skjodt was named the Sports Imports/AVCA National Player of the week, the organization announced Tuesday.

The Carmel, Indiana, native led Michigan to back-to-back victories over Top 25 opponents last week, including a sweep of No. 8-ranked Michigan State (Nov. 15) and a 3-1 victory over No. 15-ranked Purdue (Nov. 18). Skjodt led the Wolverines with 17 kills at a .351 attack average and added 12 digs for a double-double against Michigan State. She then led Michigan with 16 kills and 16 digs against Purdue for her second-straight double-double and the Wolverines' first win over the Boilermakers since 2010. Skjodt is the second player in Michigan history to earn the national award, joining Juliana Paz (Nov. 24, 2009).
