Three Stockton University athletes earned New Jersey Athletic Conference honors Monday.

Hammonton High School graduate Sarah Richardson received the women’s tennis Player of the Week award.

Emily Sullivan and Sophia Marziello were named the women’s volleyball Player of the Week and Defensive Player of the Week, respectively.

Richardson won 6-0, 6-0, in fifth singles Saturday in an 8-1 victory over Ramapo College. The sophomore, along with Brianna McCarthy, also won at second doubles.

Richardson finished the fall season 7-1 in singles, including wins in her last six matches. Richardson also led Stockton (9-1) with 10 doubles victories, eight of which she got with McCarthy as her playing partner.

Marziello and Sullivan each helped the Ospreys (20-2) extend their volleyball winning streak to 13 matches last week with victories over Rutgers-Newark (25-9, 25-11, 25-13), Christopher Newport University (27-29, 25-23, 25-12, 21-25, 17-15) and Salisbury University (19-25, 25-21, 20-27, 20-25, 15-12).

Sullivan led the Ospreys for the week with 105 assists and added 32 digs, 14 kills, four blocks and four aces. The junior began this week ranked second in the NJAC with 9.24 assists per game and fifth with a .321 hitting percentage.

On Saturday, Marziello had a career-high 36 digs in the win over Christopher Newport and 22 against Salisbury. The junior had four aces against Rutgers-Newark last Tuesday.

The Ospreys will play at conference rival Montclair State at 7 p.m. Tuesday.
