Engelbrecht Becomes Fourth MLC Volleyball Player to 1,000 Kills
NEW ULM, Minn. - Martin Luther College senior Rebecca Engelbrecht became the fourth volleyball player in school history to reach 1,000 kills for her career Saturday at Bethel University.
Engelbrecht entered the weekend with 956 career kills, and added 58 more during the two-day tournament at Bethel University to go over the 1,000 mark.
Engelbrecht joins Rachel Meyer (2003-2006), Rachel Kramer (1998-2001) and Lisa Gawrisch (1997-2000) with 1,000 in a career, and also passed Jaime Eternick (2007-2010) for fourth place all-time in career kills.
Engelbrecht, a two-time First Team All-UMAC performer during her MLC career, has already received several honors this season. She was named to the All-Tournament Team at St. Olaf, and received UMAC Offensive Player of the Week honors for her performance there. This weekend, she was named to the All-Tournament Team at Bethel. She has led the team in kills in seven of the Knights' eight games to date, and tied for the team lead in the other.
MLC will return to action on Friday, September 13, at UW-Oshkosh.
