GREENSBORO, N.C. – Wake Forest sophomore libero Caroline Wolf was named the Atlantic Coast Conference Volleyball Co-Player of the Week Monday afternoon, the league announced. She shares the honor with Florida State outside hitter Nicole Walch.

The accolade is the Demon Deacons’ first weekly award since fellow sophomore Kylie Long received freshman of the week recognition in November of last season. Carlin Salmon was the Deacs’ last ACC Player of the Week winner in 2011.

Wolf had a strong week on defense, racking up a career-best 42 digs in the Wake Forest’s 3-1 road victory over Notre Dame Sunday. That total is the second-most in a four-set match in ACC volleyball history, as well as the most in the NCAA in a four-set match in 2015—it was the third-highest total nationally in any match this season.

The Naperville, Ill.-native’s performance moved her into 15th in program history with 879 career digs and propelled her into the ACC lead with 356 digs this season.

Also picking up 11 digs against No. 25 Louisville, Wolf averaged 7.57 digs per set on the week. Her big afternoon in South Bend, Ind. helped the Demon Deacons hold the Notre Dame to a .125 hitting percentage, the lowest by a Demon Deacon opponent in ACC play and the lowest opponent hitting percentage overall since a 3-0 win over Davidson on Sept. 12.

The Demon Deacons pick up play Friday at 6 p.m. at home against Virginia Tech. They host Pitt at 6:30 p.m. on Saturday.
