SAN BRUNO, Calif. - Senior middle hitter Chloe Ferrari of the eighth-ranked University of San Diego women's volleyball team has been named the West Coast Conference Player of the Month for October. This is the second consecutive month Ferrari has earned this award.
Ferrari, a 6-1 senior middle hitter from Clovis, Calif., helped guide the Toreros to a perfect 9-0 record in October, and moved USD into sole possession of second place in the WCC, just one match behind BYU. Ferrari also helped lead USD back into the top-10 of the national rankings, now standing at No. 8 in the national polls.
Ferrari led the team's offense with 102 kills (3.40 kps), while hitting for an astronomical .494 clip, as she only committed 13 errors in 180 attempts. Ferrari also recorded 25 blocks, five of which were solo, had 33 digs, and she was second on the team in aces with seven. Ferrari recorded double-digit kills in five matches, and in three of the four she didn't reach double-digit kills, she recorded eight and nine kills, respectively. She recorded 19 kills in a thrilling 3-2 come-from-behind win over Loyola Marymount University on Oct. 3, in which she hit .471 in the match. She hit over .400 in seven of the nine matches in October, while recording at least two blocks in all but one match.
Ferrari and the Toreros will return to action on Thursday, when they begin their final regular-season road swing with a 6 p.m. match against Santa Clara University.
