WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. - Middle blocker Anna Drewry is on a tear as of late, garnering Big Ten Freshman of the Week honors for the third straight week on Nov. 23 after helping Purdue to a win over Ohio State and a four-set loss to No. 1 Penn State.
The San Antonio, Texas, native averaged 2.00 kills per set and 1.50 blocks per set on the weekend. Against Penn State, the rookie put down nine kills and four blocks. In the opening set, which gave Purdue its first set win over PSU since 2005, she posted two kills and three blocks.
Against OSU, Drewry chipped in seven kills, but put up a match-high eight blocks, including the first set winner and a solo effort which set up match-point.
With one week remaining in the conference slate, Drewry boasts the seventh-best hitting percentage among all players in league contests with a .301 effort.
The honor is the fifth for a Purdue rookie this season as outside hitter Ariel Turner was twice honored (9/21, 10/19).
Purdue wraps up the regular season at Iowa and Wisconsin this weekend.
