HUNTINGDON, Pa. -- Juniata College senior outside hitter Amber Thomas (Ephrata, Pa./Conestoga Valley) has been named the Landmark Conference Women's Volleyball Player of the Week, for the week ending October 12, 2008.

Thomas paced the Eagles to a pair of victories over top 25 programs last week, while playing in the University of La Verne (Calif.) Leopard Invitational. She pounded out 25 kills as Juniata downed third-ranked La Verne (Calif.), 3-1, and then added 12 kills and three aces in a 3-0 win over second-ranked Emory University. She tallied 56 kills over the three matches, putting together a .306 attack percentage while averaging 4.67 kills per set. Thomas also logged 28 digs, and contributed five aces without a service error.

Juniata currently holds a 19-2 record, 6-0 in the Landmark Conference. The Eagles have already clinched the top seed for the 2008 Landmark Conference Tournament, and will host the final two rounds of the tournament on Saturday, Nov. 8, at the Kennedy Sports + Recreation Center in Huntingdon, Pa.
