Anna Lazareva is PVF Player of the Week

For the third time this season, an Atlanta Vibe player has earned weekly recognition after Anna Lazareva was selected as Pro Volleyball Federation Player of the Week.

The opposite hitter led her team to a 2-1 week, including back-to-back sweeps as the Vibe moved  into a tie for first place in the league standings. In three matches overall, she tallied 56 points, 49 kills, 41 digs, six blocks and three aces.

She started off the week with a double-double of 15 kills and 20 digs in a loss to Omaha before posting 20 kills and 14 digs while hitting at a .326 clip in Atlanta’s victory over San Diego. Lazareva then finished strong, recording 12 kills and nine digs in a win over Vegas.

For the week, she notched averages of 6.2 points, 5.4 kills, 4.6 digs and 0.7 blocks. Players from the Vibe have now collected three of the six weekly honors presented so far in the inaugural Pro Volleyball Federation season.

Pro Volleyball Federation action continues on Saturday with three matches – Columbus at Grand Rapids (Noon ET), Vegas at Atlanta (7 p.m. ET) and Omaha at Orlando (7 p.m. ET). Fans can purchase tickets now via links on the schedule of the official Pro Volleyball Federation website.
