SHP grad Ebner earns Ivy League volleyball honors

 

Former Sacred Heart Prep middle blocker Jesse Ebner, who hit .533 with 20 kills in Yale's sweep of Harvard and Dartmouth over the weekend, has been named the Ivy League Player of the Week in women's volleyball.

Ebner, a sophomore from Portola Valley, had 11 kills on 15 attempts in the 3-0 victory over Harvard and added nine kills in 15 attempts in the sweep of Dartmouth on Saturday. In addition, she had three aces and accounted for 15 points against Harvard and had seven digs against Dartmouth.

Ebner is now hitting .403 for the season, which is the second best percentage in the Ivy League.

"I'm so excited to have Jesse recognized. She is one of our hardest workers," said Yale head coach Erin Appleman. "She is having an incredible sophomore season, and this past weekend she was simply outstanding."

This is the second Player of the Week honor for Ebner this season. She also was selected on Sept. 24.

The Bulldogs, who have won seven of their last eight matches and are 3-0 in Ivy matches, host Penn and Princeton this weekend.
