Girls Athlete of the Week: Ijeoma Igwe, Seton Keough, volleyball

A four-year starter, the senior has developed into one of the area's most dominating hitters for the No. 3 Gators, who improved to 9-0 on the season with three wins last week. In Seton Keough's victories over Bishop McNamara (3-0 on Sept. 24), St. Paul's (3-2 on Wednesday) and then-No. 15 Archbishop Spalding (3-2 on Friday), Igwe totaled 107 kills, 15 aces and six blocks. Her most impressive outing came in Friday's win against Interscholastic Athletic Association of Maryland A Conference rival Spalding when she tallied 41 kills, six aces and three blocks in the five-game match. On the season, the 5-foot-10 Igwe has 264 kills, 38 aces, 14 blocks and 159 digs. Still undecided on a college, she maintains a 3.4 GPA at Seton Keough.

Others considered: Cassidy Babin, Archbishop Spalding, soccer; Claire Forbes, Garrison Forest, field hockey; Becca Rinaca, North Harford, field hockey.
