MCC libero Salgado nets weekly honor from ICCAC

Marshalltown Community College sophomore libero player Ashley Salgado has been named the Iowa Community College Athletic Conference’s Defensive Player of the Week in volleyball.

Salgado totaled 114 digs over two matches last week and currently ranks first among all NJCAA Division II athletes with 237 digs and 14.37 digs per set.

The 5-foot-3 dual-sport athlete from Ottumwa had 37 digs in the Tigers’ conference sweep of Clinton on Aug. 26, and she followed that with a career-high 77 digs in MCC’s 3-2 win over the Grand View junior varsity in Thursday’s home opener.

Marshalltown is back in action Friday and Saturday at the Central Nebraska Invitational in Columbus, Neb.
