D III Women's Volleyball

Guido keeping floors clean, Mikula has 80 (changed to 60) assists

St. Norbert junior libero Catherine Guido went into the week ranked sixth in the nation at 6.42 digs per set. That number got a nice boost over the weekend. Guido had matches of 53, 48, 37 and 23 digs this weekend for an average of 9.47 per set against Carroll, Augustana and UW-Stevens Point.

If you’re wondering, Guido’s 53 digs in five sets against UW-Stevens Point was nine shy of the D-III record. Her 48-dig performance in four sets against Carroll was seven off the mark. To put a finer point on it, no one has had more than 48 digs in four sets since 2004, and it’s good for sixth best ever in D-III. The 53 in five is eighth all time.

But add them all up and I’m guessing that no one has ever had more than 161 digs in a four-match weekend.

Another standout from the weekend was Augustana junior setter Kelsey Mikula, who had a record day on Saturday. Augustana split two five-set matches against Carroll. Augie won the first behind Mikula’s 65 assists. If that wasn’t enough, Mikula had ā€“ wait for it ā€“ 80 assists in the nightcap. Yes, that’s an Augustana record. Yes, Carroll could very well be 1-0 lifetime when an opponent has 80 assists. The AC site has since been changed. Mikula is now credited with 45 assists and 60 assists in the two matches.

  2. I’ve seen the road warriors a few times this season. A good team that could win a regional match or two.
