TERRE HAUTE — Two Rose-Hulman athletes were honored as Heartland Collegiate Athletic Conference Players of the Week on Monday for their efforts last week.

Sarah Jensen earned Volleyball Offensive Player of the Week honors, and Cody Rivers claimed Football Defensive Player of the Week accolades.

Jensen recorded two triple-doubles during the week as the Engineers finished 3-1 at the Rose-Hulman Invitational and 3-4 overall. She had 82 kills with 90 assists and 63 digs. Jensen leads the Fightin’ Engineers in kills (126) and stands among the team’s top three in assists (129), digs (90) and blocks (14).

Rivers led the Rose-Hulman defense with 11 tackles, including eight solo efforts, and recovered a fumble on the 1-yard line to thwart a potential touchdown. He also added half a sack and 1.5 tackles for loss in the narrow 28-23 loss at Kalamazoo.

Trips to Noblesville, Brunswick and Reelsville, while providing some nice family time, don’t really have the cachet to fill newspaper space.
