Kirk is GCAC Player of Week for second time this season

October 15, 2013

     NEW ORLEANS — Xavier University of Louisiana's Moira Kirk, who starred in Gulf Coast Athletic Conference women's volleyball road victories against SUNO and Philander Smith, is the GCAC Player of the Week for Oct. 7-13.
     It's the second time this season that Kirk won the award and the fourth time in her career. She is the first XU player to win the award twice this season.
     Kirk, a 5-foot-9 junior middle blocker from Dallas and a graduate of Bishop Lynch High School, had 10 kills and nine blocks — one less than her career best — against SUNO to help Xavier take sole possession of first place in the conference. Then she had 10 kills, three blocks and hit a season-high .643 in 14 attempts against Philander Smith to help Xavier tie a school record with its eighth consecutive victory.
     Kirk is hitting .314 this season with 185 kills, 58 blocks and 10 aces entering a home match tonight against Mobile.
