Appel Wins ECC Volleyball Award
The East Coast Conference gave out its weekly volleyball awards, and sophomore right-side swinger Shannon Appel (Rockaway Park) of Molloy College was chosen to the honor roll. She snatches her first collegiate award from the league, after sporting 14 kills, and a dazzling .444 hitting clip in a pair of matches.
Appel kicked off the week with a four-kill, one-block performance versus New York Institute of Technology. She subsequently followed that effort with 10 kills, and a .526 attack percentage, in a 3-0 shutout of Mercy College on Thursday.
Overall, Appel is presently tied for the team lead in kills (132), while swinging at a .229 ratio, which places her ninth in the conference in that statistical category. She also ranks second on the squad in blocks, totaling 22 (3 BS, 19 BA) thus far.
