Morehead State freshman outside hitter Lauren Rokey has been voted the Ohio Valley Conference Newcomer of the Week.

A native of Eureka, Ill., Rokey earned an All-Tournament nod at the Colonial Classic by leading the Eagles to two wins. She totaled 42 kills (3.5/set) in four matches last week.

Rokey capped off a productive week with a career-best 17 kills on a season-high 42 swings versus Davidson on Saturday. She also helped the Eagles sweep Savannah State with 13 kills via a .308 attack percentage. Against William & Mary on Friday, she nearly had a double-double, coming up with 14 digs to go along with nine kills.

Rokey and the Eagles are idle during this week before returning to action at home this weekend. The Eagles host the Comfort Inn-Vitational on Friday and Saturday.
