Athlete of the Week
  • Senior Emily Danks put her name down in Ohio State history, becoming the volleyball program's all-time leader in career service aces. Entering last weekend, Danks needed four to break Lisa Bettio's record of 207 set in 1985. She notched two service aces along with 10 kills and five block assists in the team's come-from-behind 3-2 win at Illinois that snapped a nine-match losing streak to the Illini. In the team's 3-0 win at Northwestern Saturday, Danks recorded her 207th career ace in the middle of set two and her record-breaking ace gave the Buckeyes the 25-23 win in the same set. Danks added six kills and seven block assists in the win. In total, Danks has 208 service aces in her career and ranks second overall with a .46 career average. She has 28 this season, including 10 in Big Ten play.
