PASADENA, Texas - Sophomore libero Manon Geoffroy has been a steady force on the court for the San Jacinto College volleyball program this season.
Last week, Geoffroy tallied 155 serve reception attempts at a 2.4 (out of 3.0) for the week as San Jac faced five top-20 nationally ranked opponents in five days. In addition to her steadiness on serve receive, Geoffroy added 116 digs in 19 sets (6.105/set). She added herself to the the San Jac record books for single game career highs with 33 digs in the match against 15th ranked Lee College (2nd highest after Laura North with 39 from 2004). This is her third performance this season which added her into the top 10 single match career high records for San Jacinto College.
The first performance came opening weekend (August 21st) against North Central Texas College when she hustled for 29 digs placing her 5th in the all time career highs in a single match. The second record-setting performance came versus top 20 opponent Northeastern from Colorado where she placed her name in at 4th with 30 digs (tied with Laura North from 2005). Geoffroy is currently ranked 20th in digs per set and second in the nation in total digs by the National Junior College Athletic Association (NJCAA).
"Manon is a steady and consistent leader for our team," said Head Coach and Central Campus Athletic Director Sharon Nelson, now in her 14th season at the helm of the San Jacinto College volleyball program. "She is the player doing all the little things right now, which in turn betters our game and the people around her every day."
