Bella Named NACC MVB Player Of The Week

MILWAUKEE – #14 MSOE Raiders men's volleyball opposite Austyn Bella (Sherwood, Ill./Kaukauna) has been named Northern Athletics Collegiate Conference (NACC) Men's Volleyball Student-Athlete of the Week for the week of March 4-10, 2019. The league announced the honor Tuesday morning after Bella posted three stellar performances in the Raiders perfect week against Marian, Augustana (Ill.), and #10 Dominican. 

Bella started off by hitting .444 with 11 kills in the 3-0 win against Marian on Wednesday evening. The freshman would return with his teammates to Hotchkin Arena on Friday night to take on the Vikings of Augustana (Ill.). Bella tallied four kills, three digs, two aces, and two block assists in another 3-0. 

Bella saved the best for last, however. The Sherwood, Wis. native hit an incredible .563 on Saturday in the Raiders upset win against #10 Dominican. That wasn't his only impressive stat in the Red & Whites 3-1 victory. Bella also had 18 kills, four digs, two block assists, and one ace and assist to go along with no attack errors in the four sets played. He ended the week with 33 total kills on 65 total attacks and hit .431 in ten sets after accumulating just five errors. 

Bella now joins teammate Quin Krisik (Itasca, Ill./Itasca) as a NACC POTW winner on the team, which leads the conference with three total weekly honors this season. The team will look to add another next week, as they are scheduled to take on Lakeland inside of Hotchkin Arena at 7:00 pm on Wednesday.
