Emilye Grace Williams of Anchorage continues to be a sparkplug for the Master’s University volleyball team.

The senior spiker registered 22 kills on a .275 hitting percentage in back-to-back sweeps as the Mustangs improved to 3-0 since Aug. 27 when the Alaskan reaches double figures.

She collected a .300 attack percentage on 11-for-30 hitting with six digs in a three-set win over Occidental.

A day later she had a .250 attack percentage on 11-of-24 hitting with five errors and five digs in a three-set sweep of Marymount California.

“Emilye Grace Williams offensively had one of her strongest showings of the season,” said coach Annett Davis. “In order for us to win more often we need her senior leadership.”

Williams, of South High fame, has averaged 7.8 kills per match and has reached double figures five times, with a season high of 12 kills.

The senior surpassed the 350-kill career benchmark over the weekend series, putting her in the top 5 among active college players from Alaska.
