Seawolf setter gets assist fromo GNAC coaches

University of Alaska Anchorage senior co-captain Janelle Veith was named Great Northwest Athletic Conference co-player of the week for her efforts Oct. 15-20.

Veith totaled 107 assists in three matches against the University of Alaska Fairbanks, Northwest Nazarene University and Seattle University.

The setter also broke the school record for attack percentage in posting a .909 mark against NNU, breaking April Hydak's four-year-old record of .786.

Veith proved her all-around effectiveness by hitting at an overall clip of .452 over the week and must only average 27 assists a game to break Tracy Zink's school record of 3,791 helpers in her final six matches.

Veith joins teammate and fellow co-captain Brianne Halling (Oct. 8) as the only Seawolves voted player of the week.

Veith shared the award with Western Washington's Liz Bishop.
