El-Hag Earns Big East Volleyball Honors
Freshman Julia El-Hag (Bedford, NY) earned Rookie of the Week honors, after leading the BC volleyball team to a 1-1 record in BIG EAST action, last week. The Eagles defeated Rutgers 3-2 paced by El-Hag's 15 kills and 12 digs. In a 3-0 loss to Seton Hall, she posted a team high 17 kills and eight digs. On the weekend, El-Hag hit .256 with 32 kills, 20 digs, 66 attempts and posted six blocks.
For her efforts El-Hag became the first Eagle since Jen Smith in 1990 to receive BIG EAST accolades in volleyball.
