Nov. 5, 2012
NEWPORT NEWS, Va. - George Washington senior libero Candace Silva-Martin has been named the Atlantic 10 Volleyball Defensive Player of the Week following her record-setting weekend, the league announced on Monday.
It marks the first A-10 weekly honor of the season for Silva-Martin and the fifth of her career. The Fremont, Calif., native totaled 54 digs in this past weekend's matches to become the Atlantic 10's all-time digs leader.
Silva-Martin, who entered the weekend needing 30 digs to pass La Salle's Carolyn Judge ('06) for the league record, totaled 18 in Friday's 3-0 sweep of Fordham. On Sunday, she played one of the best matches of her career, totaling a career-high 36 digs to pass Judge and bring her career total to 2,105.
Silva-Martin now holds the Atlantic 10 career digs record, GW's career digs record and the top three spots on GW's single-season digs list.
For the week, she averaged 6.75 digs per set in addition to six assists (0.75/set) and four service aces (0.50/set).
GW concludes its regular season on Saturday at Duquesne at 4:00 p.m. The Colonials are currently tied for fifth place in the conference standings. The top six teams at the conclusion of the regular season will advance to the Atlantic 10 Championship at Duquesne's A.J. Palumbo Center, Nov. 16-18.
