AINESVILLE, OHIO - Freshman outside hitter Mary Walter (Solon, Ohio/Notre Dame Cathedral Latin) 12 service aces in two matches last week vaulted her into the top 15 nationally in that category.
Walter currently ranks 13th with 0.67 aces per set according to the latest- and final regular season- NCAA Division II statistical rankings released Tuesday (Nov. 10). Walters led the Storm with 81 aces on the season.
In addition, Lake Erie ranks 43rd nationally in team blocks per set at 2.1 (279.5 total). That's just 0.5 blocks fewer than leader Chowan (2.6).
Walter had a career-high nine aces in a straight set victory over Ohio Valley last week and then added three more in the season finale Saturday against West Liberty.
The Storm completed its second season in Division II with a 10-27 record.
