Victoria Bulmahn Named MVC Freshman of the Week for Third Time
Valpo freshman setter Victoria Bulmahn (McCordsville, Ind./Mt. Vernon) was recognized by the MVC office as the conference Freshman of the Week for the third time this season following her performances last weekend against Indiana State.
Bulmahn opened the weekend series by leading the Valpo offense to a .308 hitting percentage in its Sunday sweep of the Sycamores, the team’s best hitting percentage of the year. She doled out 32 assists and added eight digs and three kills as well.
On Monday, Bulmahn posted an eye-popping 28 digs on the defensive side of the ball, leading all players for the first time in her career in the category and setting a new career high. The rookie also dished out 46 assists — recording her 13th double-double of the season — and posted a pair of service aces as well.
For the weekend, Bulmahn averaged 11.14 assists and 5.14 digs per set in the split. Her 10.86 assists/set on the season lead the Valley, rank 22nd nationally and are second-most in the nation by a freshman setter.
