Haake Named ASUN Volleyball Player of the Week

LakePoint, Ga. – USC Upstate junior setter Madison Haake was honored by the ASUN Conference on Monday afternoon as the Volleyball Player of the Week following her performance in four matches last week including three at the Demon Deacon Invitational.

It is the second career ASUN Player of the Week honor for Haake and first this season.

The Bartelso, Ill. native finished the week with two triple-doubles and two double-doubles as Upstate faced Charlotte, Maryland Eastern Shore, Wake Forest and William & Mary. Haake combined for 109 assists, 53 digs, 36 kills, five total blocks and two service aces in the four matches. She hit .329 for the week after committing just nine errors in 82 attack attempts. Haake averaged 6.41 assists, 3.12 digs and 2.12 kills per set.

Haake began the week with a double-double in a midweek match at Charlotte and followed with another double-double as the Spartans opened play at the Demon Deacon Invitational versus Maryland Eastern Shore. She closed out the tournament on Saturday with back-to-back triple-doubles against Wake Forest and William & Mary. Haake recorded a season-high 17 kills at Wake Forest and concluded the tournament with 13 kills, 20 assists and 13 digs in a 3-2 victory over William & Mary. She was named to the Demon Deacon Invitational All-Tournament Team.

For her career, Haake has compiled 38 double-doubles and ten triple-doubles.

Haake is the second Spartan this year to earn a weekly honor from the conference. Lily Dempsey was selected as the ASUN Freshman of the Week last week after being named to the AmericInn Runnin' Bulldog Classic All-Tournament and becoming the first Upstate volleyball player since Kayla Eversgerd in 2014 to have 20 kills in a match.
