Congrats to Madison Duffy of Bethel volleyball on being named the SWC Athlete of the Week for Oct. 2-9. Duffy received 223 total votes and doubled-up her Bethel classmates, Autumn Sorice and Brandon Schmidt, who respectively finished second and third in the voting.
Duffy totaled 30 kills (that’s a ridiculous stat, for those of you who don’t follow volleyball) in a win over Weston last Tuesday and followed that up with 31 kills the next day. She led Bethel to a 3-0 record on the week.
The Wildcats theme continued as wide receiver Cal Daniels was voted the SWC football player of the week. Daniels, who caught eight passes for 164 yards and three touchdowns in last Friday’s win over Oxford, edged out New Milford running back Kih Best 88-84.
For what it’s worth: Like the majority of voters, I had Duffy as the Athlete of the Week. I opted for Schmidt over Daniels in the #ctfb voting.
Feel free to nominate someone for this week by emailing me at firstname.lastname@example.org. New nominees will be posted Sunday night.
