Wilmington’s Lauren Bennett Named ‘Athlete of the Week’ at UMass Lowell

LOWELL, MA — Junior middle blocker Lauren Bennett (Wilmington, Mass.) of the UMass Lowell Volleyball Team was named “River Hawk of the Week” on Tuesday afternoon.

Bennett totaled 28 kills, a .453 hitting percentage and 10 total blocks in four matches last week, which included a career-high 18 kills and a .424 hitting percentage in UMass Lowell’s 3-2 victory against Quinnipiac on Saturday night at Costello Athletic Center.

She has registered 64 kills this season, which ranks third on the River Hawks roster and leads the team with a .417 hitting percentage and 38 total blocks. Bennett’s hitting percentage is also best among all America East players.

The “River Hawk of the Week” is chosen each week in voting by the UMass Lowell Athletic Communications staff. It honors the top athlete, male or female, based on performance during the previous week of competition.

The River Hawk Volleyball team returns to action on Friday, Sept. 18th at the UAB Invitational in Birmingham, Alabama.
