Congratulations to our Hardware Hank “Nuts & Bolts” Athletes of the Week: Brianne Berger, senior, LeSueur-Henderson volleyball and John Westerhaus, junior, Holy Family Catholic football.
Name: Brianne Berger
Information: We had two matches this past week, Tuesday we beat # 8 ranked Belle Plaine in 5 games and Thursday we beat Sibley East 3-0, and Brianne set 2 school records, 1 in each match. Oh and it was Homecoming week with both matches being home matches so it couldn't have happened in a better week!
Tuesday she had 43 digs versus Belle Plaine which broke the previous record of 34 digs in a match and it put her over 1,000 digs for her career. She was also 24 for 24 serving with 2 Aces and 15 Service Points.
Thursday she had 28 digs versus Sibley East which gave her 1,037 digs for her career which is another school record. The previous record was 1,031. She was also 9 of 10 serving with 1 ace and 5 service points.
Brianne also has the school record for most digs in a season, which she set last year with 514 digs. She currently has 320 digs this year so that record is in jeopardy too.
