TERRE HAUTE —
Rose-Hulman picked up a pair of Heartland Collegiate Athletic Conference weekly honors Monday, with Kate Dangel named Volleyball Defensive Player of the Week and Eric Schaible the Special Teams Player of the Week for football.
Dangel was honored for the second time this season and the fifth time in her career after getting 65 digs in 11 sets as the Engineers earned conference wins over Anderson and Hanover.
Dangel leads Rose-Hulman with 420 digs for the season and has 1,431 for her career, eighth-best in school history. Currently 11-13 and 2-3 in the HCAC, Rose travels to California this week to play Claremont-Mudd-Scripps, Pomona-Pitzer and Cal Lutheran.
Schaible averaged 45.7 yards per punt as the Engineers made up a 20-point deficit to win 34-26 at Bluffton on Saturday. It’s his third career Player of the Week honor but his first this season.
