After one of the best performance of her collegiate career, middle blocker Jasmin Sneed was named the Virginia Lottery Student-Athlete of the Week. The San Antonio, Texas product hit .500 in Saturday's match with Davidson without committing an error in 28 swings. Sneed also posted a personal best 14 kills.
"I was just really feeling myself that game, being relaxed and in the zone," Sneed said.
The sophomore delivered eight blocks on Saturday. Along with teammate Tori Baldwin, she holds a top 10 spot in blocks per set throughout division I volleyball.
With the win, VCU captured a perfect record within the Atlantic 10 (14-0). The Rams also hold a 25-game winning streak that dates back to Sept. 1.
"We needed to make it a point that we earned our spot. We needed to show them that we deserve this," Sneed added. She attributes some of the success to the rapport she's developed with her teammates during the past two seasons.
"It makes it so much easier to play. Since we've been together for a long time it's just seamless and easy."
Next, VCU travels to Pittsburgh for the Atlantic 10 tournament where they will play either Rhode Island or Duquesne following a first round bye.
