|Culwell Named SEC Player of the Week|
Auburn senior outside hitter Katherine Culwell was named the SEC Volleyball Player of the Week, the league office announced Tuesday.
Culwell, a native of Dallas, Texas, was named the tournament MVP at the Marcia E. Hamilton Classic, where Auburn claimed the tournament title with a 3-0 record Friday and Saturday with wins over Saint Louis, No. 10 Nebraska and Louisiana-Monroe. She averaged 4.00 kills per set and 3.08 digs per set over a four-match weekend that included another win Sunday against SIU Edwardsville.
Culwell is the first Auburn player selected as the league's player of the week since Nov. 29, 2010, when Jonelle Wallace earned the league's weekly honor. Camila Jersonsky was named SEC Defensive Player of the Week twice last season.
