Aubrey Hamilton on Big East Weekly Honor Roll

+

Let's turn to the Marquette press release on the topic, since that's always more informative:

Hamilton led the Golden Eagles to wins over Green Bay, then-No. 25 Illinois and Illinois State while leading the squad in points. For the week, she hit .316 with 3.09 kills and 2.73 digs per set. She finished one kill behind Jenna Reitsma for the team kills lead with 34, while recording five service aces and six blocks. Her 30 total digs were second to libero Carly Skrabak for the team lead.

The native of Hartland, Wisconsin hit .560 (15-1-25) with a match-high 15 kills in the sweep of Illinois State on Sunday along with nine digs, a pair of service aces and three blocks. She opened the week by hitting .381 (11-3-21) against Green Bay and set a new career high with 16 digs in Saturday's win over Illinois.

Carsen Murray on Big East Honor Roll

You can go read the league office's quick blurb on Murray's honor, but the Marquette one is more detailed:

The All-BIG EAST Preseason Team selection averaged 1.45 blocks per set, while hitting .350 in wins over Loyola Chicago, LSU and Green Bay. Murray posted seven kills on .385 hitting in Saturday's win over LSU and notched all six of her blocks in the pivotal fourth set. She also added six blocks against Loyola on Tuesday and had four in the sweep of Milwaukee on Sunday.

"Jochims took individual honors at the Walt Crawford Open hosted by Eastern Illinois. The junior ran the 5K race at the Tom Woodall Panther Trail in 18:22.5. The Golden Eagles captured team first-place honors in the six-team field."

Marquette was racing against UIC, Eastern Illinois, SIU Edwardsville, Vincennes, and Kaskaskia College. Jochims won by nine seconds over the next closest runner and 14 seconds ahead of teammate Emily Noone.

Hallwood Named To Big East Honor Roll

+

Let's check in with what the league office wrote about the Marquette keeper in his first action of the season:

In his season debut for Marquette, Chandler Hallwood earned a shutout in a 1-0 win over South Florida on Friday. Facing 15 shots, Hallwood corralled six saves, while playing the full 90 minutes.

Bieda Named Freshman of the Week; Olson On Big East Honor Roll

+

Here's what the Big East office wrote about Josie Bieda's individual award:

Bieda scored the game-tying goal for Marquette in the 75th minute to force a 1-1 draw against UIC. The freshman forward had three shots, two of which were on goal, in two matches last week. Two of her shots came in a 5-0 win against Green Bay.

And the write up on Olson's honor in her first career start:

Had two saves in a 5-0 shutout against Green Bay in her first collegiate start.

Lukas Sunesson Named To Week 1 Big East Honor Roll

+

Here’s how the league explained the honor for the Swedish forward:

In a 1-1 opening week for Marquette, Lukas Sunesson totaled a team-high five points on two goals and an assist, in addition to registering a team-high five shots on target. The senior forward tallied a goal against No. 11 Tulsa, before registering a goal and an assist in a 6-1 win over Utah Tech.

Carly Skrabak Named Defensive Player of the Week

+

Here’s what the league wrote about Marquette’s libero:

"Skrabak posted 42 digs for an average of 5.25 per set in a 2-0 week as the Golden Eagles knocked off No. 11 Kentucky and Ohio. She tied her Marquette high with 26 digs in the five-set triumph over UK and recorded 16 digs with a service ace in the sweep of the Bobcats. Skrabak’s 26 digs against the Wildcats were a single-match high in the BIG EAST over opening weekend, while her 16 digs against Ohio were the second-most among conference players in a three-set match."

Big East Renews Broadcasting Deal With FloSports

+

It's not clear from the press release, but I presume that the 2022-23 school year will be the first of the three years in the extension of the agreement between the two parties. As in the past, this covers any events not claimed by the Big East's contract with Fox Sports, so most regular season women's basketball along with soccer, volleyball, and lacrosse in terms of sports that Marquette is involved in.

Lindsey Mirkes places 19th at NCAA West Prelims

+

Mirkes was Marquette’s lone competitor in Fayetteville, looking to advance to the national finals in Eugene. There were 48 participants in the women’s high jump, with Mirkes coming in seeded in a tie for 32nd best jump in the West Region this outdoor season. Mirkes tied her best jump of the season on the third height, 1.76 meters, but missed all three jumps at 1.81 meters. That would have been a new school record, both indoor and outdoor, but it was still good enough to tie her best finish in two previous trips to the West Prelims.
