Dall continues to lead the MVC in kills, kills per game, points, and points per game as the senior averaged 6.14 kills per game with 43 kills in 89 attempts with 16 errors for a .303 hitting percentage as Indiana State split a pair of conference games at home last week. She also had an assist, two service aces, 16 digs, a block assist and scored 45.50 points (6.50 points per game).
The senior had 21 kills in 35 attempts with just three errors and a .514 attack percentage in a three-game victory over Loyola Chicago on Friday while also posting four digs, a block assist and scoring 21.5 points. She added 22 kills in 54 attempts with 13 errors for a .167 attack percentage against Bradley on Saturday while also posting an assist, two service aces, 12 digs, and scoring 24.0 points.

She also was named the Valley’s Player of the Week on Sept. 9 and she becomes just the second Sycamore to be honored at least twice during the same season. Kiya James was twice named the Defensive Player of the Week during the 2011 season.
