Doherty Wins WHAC Setter of the Week  Honors for Third Time This Season

SOUTHFIELD, Mich.Kristi Doherty of the (RV) Lawrence Technological (Mich.) University women's volleyball team earned WHAC Setter of the Week honors; her third time this season. Doherty had 30-plus assists in all five matches this past week, including 57 vs. (No. 18) Rocky Mountain (Mont.).

Doherty continues to play at a high level for the Blue Devils. This past week she had a total of 199 assists, 91 digs, and five service aces. Her 57 assists vs. Rocky Mountain was good enough for her second highest total in a single match, only three behind her career high of 60. That total was just a week ago vs. Northwestern Ohio on 10/4/2019.

Currently, Doherty leads the Blue Devils in assists with 710 and in service aces with 52. Those 52 service aces have her ranked No. 4 in the NAIA. Doherty's leadership and consistent play have been a big reason why LTU is having a tremendous season. The Blue Devils at this time hold a 19-2 record.

The Blue Devils will be back on the court on Wednesday, Oct. 16th. They will host the Wolverines of Mich.-Dearborn at 7:00pm inside the Don Ridler Fieldhouse.
