Vikings of the Week

VolleyballJenny Burris, who made the switch from outside hitter to the defensive position of libero this season, is now three-for-three. The Lawrence volleyball team has played in three tournaments this season, including this past weekend’s University of Wisconsin-Oshkosh Classic, and the senior from Gurnee, Ill., has been named to the all-tournament team every time. Burris had 116 digs, an average of 7.25 per game, during the four-game tournament at UW-Oshkosh, with only 18 receiving errors in 184 chances in 16 games.


Halfback Justin Berrens of Waupaca ran 32 times Saturday and gashed the St. Norbert College defense, which entered the game third in the nation in rushing defense at 51.8 yards per game, for 215 yards. It marked the first time any back had run for more than 200 yards against the Green Knights since Lawrence’s Brad Olson did it in 1997, and Berrens had more yards (215) than St. Norbert’s previous four Midwest Conference opponents combined (153).
