Men's Volleyball - Tue, Mar. 28, 2017

CHICAGO --- St. Ambrose University's Austin Royer (Mokena, Ill.) authored his second Chicagoland Collegiate Athletic Conference men's volleyball weekly honor, while teammate Scott MacGillis (Wauwatosa, Wis.) and Robert Morris University Illinois' Keahn Dunn (Madison, Wis.) each claimed their first following their performances over the seven-day period from March 20-26, the league office announced Tuesday morning.

MacGillis, a freshman outside hitter, was named the CCAC Attacker of the Week after registering double-digit kill totals in three of four matches leading to a 3.69 kills-per-set average and a .374 attack percentage. He also averaged just under two digs per set (1.77) and recorded aces and blocks in three of the four matches.

MacGillis' 20-kill match in a four-set win over Lindenwood-Belleville on Friday marked the third time this season he has hit that plateau. He leads the club with 271 kills.

Royer, a junior, was named the CCAC Setter of the Week for the second time in three weeks after setting the table for MacGillis and the rest of the Bee offense. He averaged 10.7 assists per set, not to mention 1.83 digs per set and a .500 attack percentage.

Ranked seventh in the NAIA in assists (10.32 avg.) and 12th in aces (0.39), Royer's 51 assists against Lindenwood-Belleville were the fifth time this season that he reached that level. He had three aces in the same match and finished with five for the week.

St. Ambrose went 3-1 on the week giving the No. 10-ranked Bees a 15-9 overall mark.
