For the second consecutive week, the EIVA Offensive Player of the Week award belongs to a member of the Penn State men’s volleyball team.
Sophomore outside hitter Peter Russell was the recipient of the award Monday. He led the Nittany Lions in kills for the weekend with 17, nine against Mount Olive on .643 hitting and eight against Cal-Baptist on .353 hitting. Russell also chipped in five digs for the weekend.
Like last week's winner, redshirt freshman Nick Goodell, this is the first time Russell has won the award.
The No. 5 Lions open EIVA play this weekend with home matches Friday against Rutgers-Newark and Saturday against NJIT.
Both matches are scheduled for 7 p.m.
