RICHMOND, VA. – College of Charleston volleyball’ senior right-side hitter Cara Howley was selected as the CAA Offensive Player of the Week on Monday, as announced by the conference office. Cara is a second year graduate student in the Communications program.
The McKinney, Texas, native led CofC to a perfect 4-0 record, including being handed tournament MVP honors at the Cougars’ home-hosted CofC Classic.
Howley threw down 66 kills (4.71 p/set) for The College, hitting .461. Her 26-kill outburst against Wake Forest on Friday night was both a career-high and the eighth most kills ever recorded by a CofC player in a single match.
