Dexter leads GNAC in scoring and has posted a league-best 28 and 24 kills
Anchorage’s Brooke Dexter is the most lethal offensive weapon in the Great Northwest Athletic Conference.
The Simon Fraser University freshman in the only volleyball player in the league this year to rank in the top 5 in both kills and hitting percentage.
She also leads the GNAC in scoring at 4.9 points per set in addition to having the league’s two highest single-match kills totals of 28 and 24.
Dexter, of West High fame, has powered Simon Fraser’s 7-2 record as the team has posted the school’s best start since joining the GNAC in 2010.
The Alaskan last night posted 18 kills and finished off match point with a spike to punctuate a five-set road win over Northwest Nazarene in Nampa, Idaho.
The 6-foot-2 outside hitter hammered eight kills in the fourth set alone and finished 18-for-36 with two errors for a .444 hitting percentage.
Her .331 hitting percentage on the season ranks fifth in the GNAC and is tops among all Alaskans in the league.
Her 4.4 kills per set average is No. 1 ahead of Palmer’s Eve Stephens, who has a 3.8 average at the University of Alaska Anchorage.
Dexter has been A1 since Day 1.
She banged 24 kills in her second college match against Cal State San Bernardino and followed that up with a 20-kill performance against Cal State LA, helping her earn American Volleyball Coaches Association (AVCA) Division II National Player of the Week honors.
Two weeks later, she had a league-high 28 kills in a five-set loss to Western Washington in her first GNAC match.
Her 28 kills is the most for a Simon Fraser player since the school joined the NCAA D2 ranks in 2010.
