     North Dakota State junior outside hitter Ali Hinze has been named the TicketSmarter Summit League Volleyball Offensive Peak Performer of the Week. This is her first time earning the honor this season.

     Last week she helped lead the Bison (15-7, 8-2 Summit) to a pair of sweeps over Western Illinois (4-19, 0-11 Summit) and St. Thomas (3-20, 1-10 Summit). Hinze racked up a team-high 34 kills, along with a .400 hitting percentage. She also tallied 16 digs and six blocks throughout the week.

     In the sweep of Western Illinois she connected on a match-high 18 kills and a season-high six blocks. Against St. Thomas, she totaled 16 kills and 11 digs, good for her 10th double-double of the season. This season Hinze ranks fifth in the Summit League with 279 total kills.

     The Bison will visit Kansas City on Thursday, October 27 with the first serve slated for 7 p.m.
