Vega Named Sports Imports/AVCA Men's Division III National Player of the Week

Luis Vega Lexington, Ky. - April 1, 2014 - Springfield College's Luis Vega (Corozal, Puerto Rico) was named the Sports Imports/AVCA Men's Division III National Player of the Week, announced Tuesday by the American Volleyball Coaches Association.

After a 16-day layoff, No. 1 Springfield was back in action last weekend and completed two sweeps thanks to the strong play of Vega. After notching ten kills, seven digs, three blocks and a .304 hitting percentage over Vassar, he had a match to remember later that day against Division I Sacred Heart. He torched the Pioneers with a career-high 27 kills, which were the most by a Springfield player since AJ Nally accomplished the feat against NYU in 2009. He also hit .558 in that match and recorded another 12 digs for a double-double.

This is the 23rd time in program history a Springfield student-athlete has garnered Sports Imports/Player of the Week honors, with the most recent coming from Greg Falcone on February 26th of last year.

Vega will lead Springfield this weekend as the Pride host No. 8 Stevens, No. 10 Medaille, Endicott and Marymount for the two-day Springfield College Invitational on Friday and Saturday.
