Week 2 of the 2021 US Women’s pro volleyball league started with wins of Team De La Cruz and Team Larson.



Even though she excelled in the first match of Week 2 of the 2021 Women’s Athletes Unlimited Volleyball, Karsta Lowe couldn’t help the team in which she serves as a captain, Team Lowe (Orange), achieve victory over Team De La Cruz (Purple). She made 23 kills on 44 attempts and added 15 digs for 75 stat points. Lowe collected 335 overall points and was named MVP 1. She remained 2nd on the leaderboard with 1,210 points.

Team De La Cruz celebrated the victory of 73-67 (2-1: 25-23, 23-25, 25-19) mostly thanks to Deja McClendon (17 kills on 33 attempts), who collected 353 points in total and MVP 2 award. The no.1 pick in Week 2 Draft, Ebony Nwanebu, earned 315 points overall (MVP 3) for the winning team.

Team Larson (Gold) achieved a narrow victory against Team Edmond (Blue) of 70-69 even though they lost in sets by a 1-2 (22-25, 25-19, 23-25). Despite the fact that her overall point balance wasn’t the highest in the match, Willow Johnson earned the MVP 1 award. The young opposite hitter had 19 kills on 47 attempts, 5 digs, and 2 blocks for 292 total for Team Larson.

Her captain and MVP 2 Jordan Larson actually had the most total points – 302. She remained the leader on the leaderboard with 1,323 total points. The third MVP award went into the hands of Molly McCage from Team Edmond. She made an error-free attacking display of 10 kills on 14 attempts (71.4 %), snatching the MVP 3 honors in front of the Team Larson setter Samantha Seliger-Swenson, who had as many as 41 assists and 223 points in total.
