College honors

—Sycamore earns MVC Freshman of Week — Indiana State libero Macy Lengacher on Monday was named the Missouri Valley Conference Freshman of the Week for the opening weekend of play.

Lengacher registered 40 digs (3.64 per set) over Indiana State's first three matches of the season, recording double-digit digs on two occasions during the opening weekend of play. She tallied a team-leading 15 digs in the season opening loss to Xavier and had 16 digs in the Sycamores' win over Alabama State.

Lengacher averaged at least three digs per set in each of Indiana State's three matches, while her 40 total digs and 3.64 digs per set are the most among MVC freshmen. She also added four service aces, finishing with two each against Xavier and Alabama State.

The weekly honor is the first of Lengacher's career and the first MVC Freshman of the Week honor for a Sycamore since the opening weekend of the 2018 season. Indiana State's last weekly honor prior to Monday's announcement came in November 2021.

Lengacher and the Sycamores will head to St. Charles, Mo., for the Lindenwood Invitational on Friday and Saturday. The Sycamores open the weekend with a Friday twinbill against ULM and Austin Peay before closing play Saturday against Lindenwood.
