The goducks.com student-athlete for the week of September 2 is Katherine Fischer from the Oregon Volleyball team. The senior outside hitter and Los Altos, California native was selected to her second career All-Tournament team this past weekend at the Baymont Invitational in Athens, Ohio.
Fischer collected a season-high 20 kills and 11 digs for her second double-double of the season (30th career-wise) in the 3-1 win over host Ohio in the tournament final Sunday afternoon. The now No. 13 Ducks won the invitational in 9-1 sets, sweeping Western Carolina and No. 10 Kentucky. Overall for the weekend, Fischer averaged .431 hitting, 3.80 kills, and 2.70 digs per set in three matches.
Fischer and the rest of the Ducks are ready to bring their success back home on Wednesday, September 5 versus UC Santa Barbara, then again against No. 29 St. Mary’s on Monday, September 10, both at 7PM in Matt Knight Area.
