GAINESVILLE, Fla. (November 16, 2021) -- For her performance in the series sweep over Arkansas, redshirt senior T'ara Ceasar was named this week's Sports Imports/AVCA Division I Player of the Week, as the organization announced Tuesday afternoon.
This is the first such honor of Ceasar's career and comes off the heels of her earning her second consecutive SEC Overall Player of the Week award.
Against the Razorbacks, the redshirt senior averaged 5.00 kills per set, 3.25 digs per set, 5.38 points per set and registered a .420 clip.
In the first match against Arkansas, Ceasar posted 17 kills on 29 swings with only one error for a career-high .552 hitting percentage. She added five digs, three blocks, one ace and one assist in the three-set victory.
The Panama City, Fla. native notched 23 kills in Saturday's win against Arkansas, to go along with her career-high 21 digs. That performance was her team-leading 10th double-double of year. She also hit .346 in the match and added a block in the five-setter.
Ceasar and the rest of the Gators are back in action on Wednesday when the team takes on the Auburn Tigers in Exactech Arena. First serve is slated for 7 p.m. on SEC Network +.
