Junior Hayden Wagner has been selected as the EIVA Offensive Player of the Week for Feb. 11, 2019. Hayden had a pair of huge matches in the Patriots’ weekend in Indiana, with 20-kill performances in both a 3-0 sweep of Purdue-Fort Wayne and a 3-2 loss to Ball State. Wagner also hit .568 against the Mastadons, adding six blocks and five digs. His kill total put him at exactly 500 for his career. The next night during the marathon match with the Cardinals, he posted his first career double-double, adding a career-high 11 digs. He has posted double figures in kills in all but the Patriots’ opening match of the season. Hayden leads the EIVA with 4.69 kills per set and 39 total blocks, and ranks second with 169 kills and .353 hitting. The EIVA weekly award is Hayden’s third of the season and fifth of his career.
