SHUPirates.com Athlete of the Week (September 27, 2011)
Stacey Manthorpe, Volleyball
Freshman Stacey Manthorpe was named BIG EAST Freshman of the Week after guiding the Seton Hall volleyball team to a 3-0 week and its first 2-0 start in conference play since 1994. The outside hitter began her career week with nine kills in a sweep of Princeton on Tuesday night. On Friday, Manthorpe helped the Pirates capture their first win at Pittsburgh since 1998 after posting career-bests with 18 kills and 14 digs in four sets. She closed the weekend with another big match, registering 17 kills and 13 digs at West Virginia on Sunday. Manthorpe is just the second player to earn Freshman of the Week honors from the league, joining SHU's all-time kill leader, Sarah Osmun, who was honored twice in October of 2007.
