FLORENCE, S.C. – Francis Marion University senior outside hitter Ashlee Crook has been named the Peach Belt Conference Volleyball Player of the Week, for the week ending Oct. 2.

Crook equaled her career high of 19 kills, while recording a blistering .600 attack percentage, in a three-game sweep of UNC Pembroke. She registered a double-double (12 kills, 11 digs) in a road contest at Flagler College and followed that with a 15-kill performance at 19th-ranked Armstrong Atlantic State University.
For the 2011 season, Crook leads the Patriots with 2.46 kills per game and is second with 2.39 digs per game.
During the past week, she surpassed 700 kills for her career and during the previous week exceeded 700 career digs. A three-year starter, she has been named to the PBC Presidential Honor Roll three times as a mathematics major.
