(Centerville, Mass.) It has been recently announced the Rivier's Aaron Almario has been named the Corvais ECAC Men's Volleyball North Player of the Week for the week ending on March 16.
Almario was a monster on defense for the Raiders, back bonning the sixth ranked team to a 2-1 week. The 6-foot 7-inch middle blocker registered 20 blocks in just 12 sets for a 1.66 blocks per set average for Rivier. Almario, playing in his home state for the first time in his career, recorded nine blocks in a five set win over #8 UC Santa Cruz.
This is the second time this season that Almario has been named the Corvais ECAC Player of the Week.
Almario and the #6 Raiders will host Emerson College and Mount Ida College in a pair of Great Northeast Athletic Conference contests tomorrow night inside the Muldoon Gymnasium, beginning at 6pm.
