RECORD SETTING WEEKEND The BSU volleyball team had a record-setting weekend at the Blue Hawk Tournament in Dickinson, N.D. Senior Libero Brie Groskreutz became the career leader in digs at Bemidji State with 23 digs last Friday against Montana State-Northern. She surpasses Lora Hilger, who had 535 career digs. Groskreutz heads into the U-Mary match with 682 career digs. Lindsey Weyer also put her name in the record books with a couple single match gems from the weekend. Weyer’s 25 kills against Montana State-Northern ties current Beaver Nicole Olson for the fourth-best single-match kills mark in program history. The senior outside hitter also put herself in the ranks among the best hitting percentages in a single match with a .583 attack percentage against Dickinson State to open the season. Nicole Olson made it a trio of Beavers to have a record setting weekend. Olson put her name in the top 10 of three categories. Olson’s 943 career kills now ranks ninth all-time. Her 219 block assists rank tied for eighth all-time and Olson’s 276 total blocks come in 10th all-time.

WEYER NAMED BEAVER PRIDE ATHLETE OF THE WEEK Lindsey Weyer was named Beaver Pride Female Athlete of the Week after a stellar performance at the Blue Hawk Tournament.

MCCANNELL TAKES OVER AT SETTER Look for junior Jessi-Beth McCannell to be an X-Factor for Coach Chadwick’s BSU squad this season. The native of Brandon, Manitoba will be looked at to step up at the setter position replacing Courtney Bitter. McCannell showed she can fill the role admirably last season in her one appearance at setter. She exploded for a career-high 46 assists, while adding a season-high 13 digs for her first career double-double in the final contest of the season against Upper Iowa. In her first two weekends as the starting setter, McCannell has tallied 307 assists for an average of 10.96 per game. She will look to continue to build on those numbers as the Beavers open their home slate on Tuesday.

CHADWICK’S DEBUT Wayne Chadwick finished his first weekend as the BSU coach with a record of 3-1. The mark is the best four-game mark for a first-year head coach since Pat Rosenbrock led the Beavers to a 3-1 record to start the 1975 season.

SCOUTING THE OPPOSITION • U-MARY MARAUDERS

HEAD COACH: STEVE NOVACEK PLAYER TO WATCH: OH AMANDA HENNESSY, SR. The Marauders enter play on Tuesday with a 3-5 record after the first two weekends. Coach Steve Novacek’s squad went 1-3 over the weekend in Rolla, Mo., defeating Arkansas-Monticello, 3-0, but picking up three losses to Drury, Missouri S & T and Rockhurst. U-Mary is led by senior Amanda Hennessy, who comes in with 2.87 kills per game and 2.43 digs per contest.
