Hook, Pequignot set BC recordsNovember 9, 2000
A new career record and a new single-season record were set this season by a pair of Bluffton College volleyball players. Senior Betsy Hook ended her career with a record 482 blocks and junior Mandy Pequignot set a new single-season hitting percentage record at 31.47%.
Both Hook and Pequignot were first team All-Heartland Conference selections this season as they helped lead Bluffton to a 19-16 overall record and the semi-finals of the HCAC tournament.
Hook recorded 74 blocks as a freshman, 160 as a sophomore, 133 as a junior and then collected 115 blocks this season to give her a total of 482 career blocks which topped the old record of 481 held by Janelle Staneck (1993-96).
Pequignot had 1,058 total hitting attempts this season and committed just 98 errors as she racked up 431 kills. Her new hitting percentag record of 31.47% topped the old record of 29.2% held by current Bluffton head coach Sara Wakefield during her senior season of 1997 (1,155 attempts, 459 kills, 122 errors).
Bluffton junior Jaime Frisk also tied a BC record on October 10 against Denison when she recorded eight aces in one match, tying the record held by three other players, most recently by Jayne Miller against Baldwin-Wallace in 1997.
