WILMINGTON, North Carolina – One week after earning Colonial Athletic Association Player-of-the-Week honors for the first time, UNCW's Sydney Brock was tabbed the league's defensive player-of-the-week on Monday.

"Sydney's hard work ethic continues to shine with every opponent we face," said UNCW Head Coach Amy Bambenek. "Her blocking last week against two ACC opponents and Campbell is almost unheard of for an undersized middle hitter. She continues to surprise us each week with her contributions."

Brock, who ranks second in the league in blocks per set (1.18) helped the Seahawks to a 2-1 week with wins over Campbell and NC State and a loss in five sets at Duke. The junior from Richland, Texas, totaled 25 blocks for the week including a career-high 10 in the Duke loss. Brock followed that up with nine more blocks as UNCW took down NC State in four sets.

After missing all but one match her sophomore season with a knee injury, Brock has started all 12 matches and leads UNCW with 52 total blocks. The Seahawks sit atop the CAA, averaging 2.84 blocks per set.

UNCW returns to action on Sept. 23, when it hosts Northeastern in the league opener for both teams. First-serve is set for 7 p.m. in Hanover Hall.
