For the third time this year, senior Katherine Harms (Albertville, Minn.) has been named the Big Ten Conference’s Player of the Week, announced today by the league office. After sweeps against Northwestern and Illinois, Harms accepts the Gophers’ seventh weekly award this season.

Harms, a 6-foot, 2-inch opposite hitter, led the Gophers in both straight set wins over the Wildcats and Illini. Against Northwestern, Harms hit an impressive .485 when she had 19 kills on 33 attempts in just three sets. Along with her 19 kills, she also had three aces, which tied a career high. On Sunday against Illinois, Harms again led the Gopher attack when she had 17 kills on 37 swings and hit .405. In three sets, she accomplished a double double with 17 kills and 12 digs. On the weekend, Harms averaged an impressive 6.00 kills per set and a .443 hitting clip with five service aces, 18 digs and five blocks. She ranks second in the Big Ten in kills per set (4.40) and third in points per set (5.04).

Minnesota travels to No. 1 Penn State and No. 20 Ohio State this weekend. Friday’s match against the Nittany Lions will be televised live on the Big Ten Network at 7 p.m. Originally scheduled for Saturday, Nov. 3, the Gophers will play the Buckeyes on Sunday, Nov. 4 at 1 p.m. CT.
