Against Notre Dame (Md.) on Saturday in a three-set win she had match-highs of 14 kills and four blocks, which tied her career-high, and had a team-high three aces and added nine digs as she hit .333. On Tuesday in a three-set sweep at Goucher, she had 10 kills to lead all players and added three aces to lead the squad.
This is the third time Marino has won the conference's player of the week award as she won previously on September 6, 2016 and September 12, 2016.
