BRISOL, Tenn. – King University men's volleyball player Nick Serowski turned in another solid week for the Tornado, and earned national recognition. The freshman was named National Freshman of the Week Honorable Mention by Off the Block, a website that covers collegiate men's volleyball.

Serowski had 11 kills and a .476 attack percentage in a sweep against McKendree University on Friday at the McKendree Crossover Tournament. In addition, Serowski had a team-high 15 kills in a four-set loss to Quincy University during the nonconference tournament. For the week, he accounted for 34 kills, and 17 digs at the tournament.

For the season, Serowski ranks second among Tornado with 254 kills, and an average of 3.26 kills per set. The Moore, Okla., native has also been one of King's most potent servers this season, accounting for 10 aces this year. Serowski has played solid defense too as he is one of four Tornado to have more than 100 digs at 103. His 36 total blocks also rank him third among Tornado.

This marks the second time Serowski has been named National Freshman of the Week Honorable Mention, the first time came on February 17.

King is 8-14 overall this season, and has a 3-6 mark in Conference Carolinas play. The Tornado play their remaining five matches at home, starting with a league match against Pfeiffer University on Wednesday night at the Student Center Complex. First serve is scheduled for 7:00 p.m.
