Kills Per Set National Ranking

INDIANAPOLIS, IN – The National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) announced Adam Weaver (Stow, OH/Archbishop Hoban) as the 2013 NCAA Division III statistical champion in Kills Per Set in men’s volleyball. 

Weaver was credited with 311 kills in the 72 sets played during Hilbert College’s 2013 season.    His 4.32 kills per set led the sixty-one Division III programs in the country. 

Weaver became Hilbert’s All-Time Kill Leader (834) early in his junior year after only forty-eight matches.  The Outside Hitter completed his junior season leading the Hawks in kills (311), attempts (719) and hitting percentage (.287) as Hilbert’s primary target. With that in mind, opponents prepared to defend his net-play, and yet he was still able to perform for the Hawks.  Weaver also led Hilbert in service aces (31) and points per set (4.97).  

Hilbert is a member of the United Volleyball Conference, considered the most competitive conference in Division III men’s volleyball. Six of Hilbert’s UVC members finished the 2013 season ranked in the Division III Top 15 Poll, and Hilbert (6-21) competed against 8 of the Top 15 teams during the season.

Weaver repeated as a United Volleyball Conference Honorable Mention  All-Conference player, having earned that same award at the completion of his freshman year and for the second consecutive season, Weaver was an Allegheny Mountain Collegiate Conference 1st Team All-Conference member.
