Congratulations to Carter Hofer, second-year left side for the CMU Blazers men’s volleyball team, who is our male athlete of the week!
Carter has risen out of the considerable shadow of Blazers top-hitter Mackenzie Hildebrand to lead the team in kills so far this year.
Statistically, Carter led the team with 15 kills on Friday in Otterburne vs the Pilots (at a hitting percentage of 47%), added 3 aces and 3 digs, and led the team in passing percentage off serve receive.
He followed up with another strong performance on Saturday, recording 6 kills (42% hitting percentage) in only two sets of work against the RRC Rebels, keeping the Blazers atop the standings with a perfect 8-0 record thus far.
The Blazers head into the break with a commanding lead in the conference and a great chance to repeat as MCAC Men’s Volleyball Champions. They return to the court Friday, January 11 at 7:30 PM for another Route 90 battle against the RRC Rebels.
