WHITEFISH — Sabrina Hopcroft’s clutch week did not go without notice.
The Montana Tech senior libero was named Frontier Conference Defender of the Week, the league announced today.
The award comes after Hopcroft helped lead the Orediggers to a 2-0 week that led to Tech earning the No. 1 seed in this week’s Frontier Conference Tournament in Great Falls.
Tech beat Carroll College 3-1 in Helena before sweeping Lewis-Clark State College at home.
The 5-foot-7 Hopcroft averaged 10.14 digs per set over the two matches. Hopcroft recorded 53 digs in four sets against Carroll breaking her own school record.
No. 17 Montana Tech receives a bye in the first round of the conference tournament which starts Friday. The Orediggers will play the lowest seed left in the tournament in the semi-finals on Saturday.
