MOUNT OLIVE (March 20) – Following a conference road sweep over the weekend, University of Mount Olive senior libero Trevor Treser was named National Libero of the Week by Off the Block on March 20.
A native of Wexford, Pa., Treser averaged 3.13 digs per set with zero reception errors in eight sets played. On Friday, he led the defensive effort with a match-high 12 digs while adding four assists in a 3-1 win at league-leading Erskine. The following day, Treser tallied double-digit digs with 13 with a pair of assists in a 3-1 win over Emmanuel on the road.
He ranks third in NCAA Division I and leads the Conference Carolinas with 2.90 digs per set. In 58 sets played, Treser has tallied 168 digs with only 13 reception errors to boast a .961 reception percentage this season.
Treser becomes the first libero from the Conference Carolinas to garner the accolade this season, while two other student-athletes in the league have received national recognition from the organization this year.
