Wuerstle, who has excelled from the service line this season, racked up 20 aces in the Blue Jays three matches this week, including 13 in a 3-0 victory over Muhlenberg which tied the team record. Wuerstle leads the conference with 69 aces and 1.12 aces per set. Her 1.12 aces per set are also best in the NCAA.
