Athlete of the Week: Anica Urioste (Pojoaque Volleyball)

Urioste continued to post impressive numbers in a dominant win over Española Valley. The senior outside hitter had 11 kills as the offense spread the ball around, and added six aces including winning double-digit straight points on her serve to finish the match.

The outside hitter and senior leader continues to make her mark on the team offensively and defensively as the Elkettes look to make a deep playoff run.
