Abby Simmons Named C-USA Setter of the Week

Oct. 15, 2012

IRVING, Texas — For her efforts in leading the University of Houston volleyball team to two weekend victories, including a road sweep at East Carolina and a 3-1 win over then-first place Marshall, senior setter Abby Simmons was named Conference USA Setter of the Week announced by the league’s office Monday.
 
“Abby is very deserving of this honor after leading us to two wins over the weekend,” head coach Kaddie Platt said. “She did a fantastic job with the decisions she made pacing our offensive attack. She not only was successful on offense, but helped out our defense with a strong outing against Marshall.”
 
The Phoenix, Ariz. native, posted 92 assists, including 53 in the win over Marshall, just three shy of her Houston-best. Over the weekend, Simmons tallied a .422 set percentage and helped Houston to two solid team hitting percentages of .294 and .261.
 
She added three kills in the win over Marshall and one service ace in each match. Simmons went on to contribute on the defensive end as well with her eighth double-double of the year with 53 assists and 11 digs in the 3-1 win over Marshall.
 
Currently, Simmons leads the team with 632 assists for 8.90 per set. She is second-best on the team with 12 service aces and fourth-best with 153 digs.
 
This is the first weekly honor for the senior transfer and first for Houston Volleyball this season.

Tulsa's Tyler Henderson earned Offensive Player of the Week, while UCF's Meredith Murphy was honored as Defensive Player of the Week.
