Canisius College libero Jess Stackhouse (Warsaw, N.Y.) was named the Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference Defensive Player of the Week, the league office announced today. Stackhouse earns the honor for the third-consecutive week, fourth time this season and 10th in her career.

In the two matches last weekend, Stackhouse averaged 8.29 digs per game. In the loss at Loyola, Stackhouse had 38 digs, which was the fourth time this season the senior has had at least 30 digs in a match.

For the season, Stackhouse leads Canisius and is second in the conference with a digs per game average of 5.80, which is the best in program history.

Against Rider, Stackhouse became the first player in program history to reach 2,000 digs as the two-time MAAC Defensive Player of the Year now has 2,002 for her career. Entering this season, 24 players in NCAA history had totaled 2,000 digs during their career.

During her senior season, Stackhouse leads the Golden Griffins and ranks second in the MAAC in digs per game with 5.80, which ranks as the best single-season average in program history. For her career, Stackhouse is averaging 4.98 digs per game. Entering the season, 10 players in NCAA history averaged five or more digs per game during their careers.

Canisius closes out its home schedule this weekend when the Golden Griffins host Siena and Marist at the Koessler Athletic Center. Match time on each day is set for 2 p.m. as the program will honor its senior class prior to the match against the Red Foxes.
