It is the fourth time this season Zabilowicz won the award. The senior libero earned her fifth New Jersey Athletic Conference Defensive Player of the Week award of the season Monday.

She leads the NJAC and is 42nd in the country with 5.43 digs per set. She is sixth in Stockton history with 1,545 career digs and holds the season record with 706, which she set last season on her way to being named the NJAC Defensive Player of the Year.

The Ospreys (18-9, 6-1 NJAC) will play four matches at the Swarthmore Garnet Classic on Friday and Saturday.
