In Wednesday night’s 3-0 loss at Gettysburg, Batrus totaled 16 digs. On Saturday, Penn State Altoona split at a tri-match hosted by Stevenson, defeating Penn State Berks 3-1 before losing to Stevenson, 3-0. Batrus finished with a match-high 28 digs versus Berks, then followed that up with a team-best 15 digs against Stevenson.
On the week, Batrus recorded 59 digs and averaged 5.9 digs per set. She currently leads the AMCC in digs (284) while ranking second in digs per set (5.57).
