Alexa Filley named SEC Setter of the Week
AUBURN, Ala. (auburntigers.com)– Junior Alexa Filley of the Auburn volleyball team was named the Southeastern Conference Setter of the Week, the league office announced Monday.
Filley, of Louisville, Ky., has been a key contributor in Auburn’s current five-match winning streak and helped the Tigers go 2-0 last week on the road.
Highlighting her week was the performance at Ole Miss, Oct. 19. Against the Rebels, Filley picked up the second triple-double of her career and of the season. She totaled 10 kills, 45 assists, and 18 digs, guiding Auburn to a 3-2 victory. She is the lone student-athlete in the conference to even record a triple-double this season.
The team traveled to Arkansas Sunday and Filley finished with 42 assists and 19 digs in Auburn’s 3-1 win over the Razorbacks. With that performance, she moved to 13 double-doubles on the season and that total ranks second overall in the league. Also, her 19 digs led all student-athletes in the match.
In addition, Filley added three blocks in each match and also contributed from the service line, having at least one ace against both opponents.
Filley is averaging 9.78 assists/set on the season and is second on the team with a 3.07 digs/set average.
After a very busy start to the SEC schedule, the Tigers (13-10, 7-3) will get a week off of competition before traveling to Tennessee for a Sunday afternoon match, Oct. 30. Auburn and the Lady Vols will square off at 12:30 p.m. CT in Knoxville.
