LAGUNA NIGUEL, Calif. (Oct. 21, 2019) – Junior setter Krystyna Maruszko (Redondo Beach, Calif. / Marymount) of the Caltech volleyball team has been named SCIAC Volleyball Specialist of the Week for her impressive outings during the team's first-ever two-win week in conference play.
Maruszko's ability to set her teammates up for success proved vital in both Caltech wins. The junior posted 53 assists and 20 digs in the Beavers' come-from-behind victory at Pomona-Pitzer last Tuesday and finished with a similar line in the team's five-set home win against Occidental: 51 assists and 19 digs. Maruszko's consistency as the team's top setting option has helped the Beavers to their first-ever double-digit win season under Head Coach Tom Gardner, and her 597 assists have her within striking distance of the single-season program record with five matches to go.
Maruszko and the Beavers will look to make it an unprecedented three-straight SCIAC wins when they travel to the University of Redlands on Saturday, Oct. 19.
