Palmer’s Eve Stephens was named Alaska Athlete of the Week after leading the University of Alaska Anchorage volleyball team back from the dead in a wild five-set victory over Biola.

Down two sets to none, the Seawolves rallied behind the 6-foot-1 All-American from the Mat-Su Valley as she slammed 15 of her 20 kills over the final three sets.

Stephens, of Colony High fame, finished 20-of-52 with four errors for a .308 attack percentage. She added 12 digs to give her a third straight double-double.

Stephens increased her career kill total to 1,087 to move into No. 7 on UAA’s all-time kills list.
