CASTINE — Maine Maritime freshman, Sydney Robertson (Barnstead, N.H.) was named the North Atlantic Conference’s (NAC) Rookie of the Week in volleyball. It is the second time this season the middle hitter has earned the honor.
Roberston had 26 kills and nine blocks during a 4-0 week for the Mariners. Maine Maritime beat Bates 3-0 before cruising through the Second Annual Maritime Classic with wins over The United States Merchant Marine Academy, Massachusetts Maritime and SUNY-Maritime.
The Mariners dropped only one game through four matches last week to move to 10-1 on the year. MMA has posted 3-0 sweeps in nine of their 10 matches this year.
The Mariners return to action on Wednesday night at Maine-Machias.
