Dixie State junior middle blocker Malary Marshall was named Pacific West Conference Volleyball Defender of the Week on Monday for her efforts in the Trailblazers’ two home victories to close out the regular season last week.

Marshall (5-foot-11; Hurricane, Utah/Hurricane HS/BYU-Hawaii) averaged 1.86 blocks per set and registered 13 total blocks in the two matches. She racked up a career-high 10 blocks, including two solo stops and eight block assists, and had six kills in DSU’s straight-set win against her former team BYU-Hawaii on Nov. 14. Then in the season finale vs. Point Loma last Saturday, she tallied 10 kills and had three total blocks (one solo, two assists) in the four-set win over the Sea Lions. Marshall finished the season ranked ninth in the conference in blocks per set (0.97 bps) and fifth in solo blocks (nine).

Dixie State wrapped up its 2016 regular season with a 17-11 overall record and finished in a tie for third place in the PacWest standings at 13-7.
