Junior libero Tess Van Grouw has displayed exceptional play all season, but she performed her best with postseason dreams on the line against Biola’s Golden State Athletic Conference foe, the Vanguard University Lions on Nov. 10. The victory extended the No.19 ranked Eagles’ winning streak to four games and aided them to a second place overall finish in the GSAC standings. Van Grouw, the 5’9” libero from Exeter, Calif., was recently named to the All-GSAC team thanks to her 544 digs for the season that lead the GSAC. Van Grouw’s exceptional play versus the Lions manifested in her leading the team with 19 digs and chipping in four assists and an ace. Van Grouw’s play in the back row has proved instrumental all season to the Eagles’ success, and due to her recent solid performance to cap off her great season, she has earned this week’s Chimes’ Athlete of the Week.
