Clarksville, TN – Austin Peay State University volleyball’s junior setter Kristen Stucker has been named the Chick-Fil-A Austin Peay Student-Athlete of the Month.
A Johnston, Iowa native, Stucker won four adidas® Ohio Valley Conference Setter of the Week honors in September, leading the Govs to a 13-1 record in September and sole possession atop the OVC standings to begin October.
In posting 602 assists (11.36/set) for the month, Stucker spread the ball around to a host of teammates as Ashley Slay (200), Christina White (160), Brooke Moore (108), Kaylee Taff (90), Logan Carger (66) and Cecily Gable (54) each averaged better than a kill per set during the month.
With Stucker piloting the offense, the Govs hit a robust .224 for September’s duration.
She also earned all-tournament honors at the Blazer Invitational, helping the Govs take the team title as Slay earned tournament MVP.
She’s the only setter in the league to average double-digit assists per set for the month, and ranks second among NCAA setters in total assists (787).
The biology major posted some eye-popping single-match numbers throughout the month, including:
- 47 assists and a season-high 20 digs against Georgia State.
- 56 assists in a four-set win at UAB.
- 48 assists against South Florida
- Averaging 53 assists in a three-match span against Jacksonville (57), SIU Edwardsville (49) and Eastern Illinois (53).
Proving she’s more than just a shepherd of the offense, Stucker chipped in all over the floor, with 157 digs and 22 blocks, both totals ranking third among Governors.
Chick-Fil-A is proud to bring you the Austin Peay Student-Athlete of the Month, honoring the best all-around performance by an Austin Peay student-athlete each month.
