Kirk wins her 3rd career GCAC Player of Week award

September 23, 2013

     NEW ORLEANS — For the third time in her volleyball career and the first time this season, Xavier University of Louisiana junior Moira Kirk is the Gulf Coast Athletic Conference Player of the Week.
     Kirk — a 5-foot-9 middle blocker from Dallas and a graduate of Bishop Lynch High School — won the award for Sept. 16-22 after hitting .453 with 34 kills, five aces and eight blocks during the Gold Nuggets' 3-0 week. She hit .625 with five kills, two aces and two blocks during a three-set GCAC sweep of Fisk, hit .391 with 11 kills, an ace and three blocks in four sets during the Nuggets' first-ever home victory against city rival Loyola, then hit .455 with 18 kills, two aces and three blocks in Xavier's five-set victory at Mobile.
     Kirk ended the Mobile match with a kill and helped the Nuggets rally from a two-set deficit and record their first-ever five-set victory on an opponent's floor. For the season she has 155 kills in 17 matches and leads Xavier with 44 blocks and a .302 hitting percentage.
     Xavier (10-7, 2-0 GCAC) will travel this weekend for conference matches at Edward Waters (11 a.m. EDT Saturday) and Talladega (2 p.m. Sunday). Start time of the Edward Waters match was moved up two hours. The Gold Nuggets' next home matches will be Oct. 5 against Dillard and St. Thomas (Texas).
