Reuther earns her 5th GCAC weekly award in 2 seasons

October 1, 2012

     NEW ORLEANS — For the second time this season and the fifth time in two years, Xavier University of Louisiana's Taylor Reuther is the Gulf Coast Athletic Conference Player of the Week in women's volleyball.
     Reuther, a 5-foot-7 sophomore outside hitter from Metairie, La., and a graduate of St. Mary's Dominican High School in New Orleans, led Xavier with 31 kills, 21 digs and 10 aces during a 3-0 week which extended the Gold Nuggets' school-record road win streak to 10. Reuther had nine kills, eight digs and two aces to help Xavier win in four sets at SUNO and snap the Lady Knights' school-record nine-match win streak. In a sweep of Fisk she had 14 kills, six digs and three aces — all five of her third-set attacks were kills — and she had eight kills, seven digs and five aces in a sweep of Philander Smith.

     Since the start of the 2008 season, only Whitney Knight of former member Mobile has won more GCAC weekly awards (12) than Reuther. No other active GCAC player has won more than twice. Xavier has received three weekly awards this season — sophomore outside hitter Chinedu Echebelem won the other.
     Xavier's next match will start at 6 p.m. Friday against GCAC opponent Edward Waters at The Barn. It will be the first of three home matches in six days for the Gold Nuggets (10-4 overall, 4-0 GCAC).
