Docter Named Ivy League Player of the Week

Docter recorded 21 kills and a .293 hitting percentage Saturday en route to player of the week honors (Gil Talbot).

CAMBRIDGE, Mass. – Women's volleyball captain Taylor Docter has been named the Ivy League Player of the Week after guiding the Crimson to a perfect weekend.

Docter scored 14 kills and added four blocks and six digs as Harvard knocked off Cornell Friday night, 3-1. The outside hitter also recorded one ace, moving her past current assistant coach Christine Wu '12 into sole possession of sixth place on Harvard's all-time list.

Docter returned to the court on Saturday and notched 21 kills in a sweep at Columbia. Her 21 kills were two shy of her career-high, and the most for a Crimson student-athlete in a three-set match since 2008. The senior hit .293 on the night, tallied 12 digs for her ninth double-double of the year, and added one more ace to give her 95 for her career.

Docter finished the weekend averaging 5.00 kps and 2.57 dps while hitting .280. With the weekend sweep, Harvard has now won four of five matches and is tied for third place in the Ancient Eight with a 4-3 record.
