Middle blocker Whitney Weems clinched her first athlete of the week nomination after a stellar week of performances clinched the Lady Lions spot in the postseason. 

Weems and her Dublin teammates won matches over both Eastland and Early last week as their regular season came to a close. In those matches Weems was essential as she finished the week with 45 kills, six aces, 25 digs and five blocks. 

"Whitney has been doing a great job and she helped clinch back-to-back wins over Eastland and Early," said Dublin head coach Ryan Lewis. "She's been doing an outstanding job at the net for us."
