George Mason freshman middle blocker Janelle Wilson posted career numbers over the weekend to receive the Colonial Athletic Association’s (CAA) Rookie of the Week honors for women’s volleyball. The Patriots defeated the College of William and Mary, 3-1, on Oct. 10, and the University of North Carolina, Wilmington, 3-0, the following day to improve Mason’s record to 7-9 overall, 3-2 in the CAA.

Wilson tallied seven kills and had a career-high .417 hitting percentage in the Patriots’ four-game win over William and Mary. The Kansas native registered seven total blocks in the wins, including a career-high three block solos against the Seahawks. Wilson also matched a career-high with three service aces in each contest.
