This week’s Athlete of the Week is Sammy Dormio. Dormio is a sophomore outside hitter for the Keene State College volleyball team. Dormio played Libero as a freshman, but has changed position for her second season on the team.

The sophomore from Lesburg, VA has been one of the team’s top killers as the Owls stormed past their opponents this week.  Dormio accumulated a team-high 23 kills over the past three.

Also a big part of the Owls’ defense, Dormio led the team with 34 digs over that stretch, including an 18-dig performance in KSC’s victory over conference opponent Rhode Island College.

The first runner-up this week is Thomas Paquette of the Men’s cross-country team. The senior finished eighth in a field consisting of several Division I teams. Paquette finished the five-mile course with a time of 24:41. The Owls finished fifth among the five teams competing at the UMass-Amherst Invitational, but Amherst College runner, Greg Turissini was the only Division III athlete to beat Paquette.

The second runner-up this week is freshman Hayley Dolan. The field hockey team forward had a goal and an assist in the Owls’ 5-0 victory over Fitchburg State.

Dolan started the scoring, putting in the game’s first goal five minutes in. She then helped KSC close the door on Fitchburg State assisting Hannah Gage’s goal, giving KSC their 5-0 advantage.
