Morgan Weirich third-straight Shelby athlete to earn Player of the Week honors

Tigers volleyball standout follows football players Lalo Garcia and Travis Boughan with the weekly accolades.

Shelby football players Lalo Garcia and Travis Boughan won the last two CatchMark SportsNet Player of the Week fan polls.

Now Shelby volleyball player Morgan Weirich has gotten into the act.

Weirich is this week’s winner of Player of the Week honors. She edged Mason County Central football player Peyton Merz in this week’s poll, which recognized six athletes from the West Michigan Conference for their performances spanning Oct. 3-8, 2022.

Weirich finished with 2,092 of 4,255 total votes in the fan poll. Merz received 1,698 votes.

Final voting tallies for all six athletes can be found at the bottom of this story.

Weirich is a 5-foot-6 senior, who is a four-year starter at libero. She sparked Shelby to a key, four-set victory at North Muskegon last Tuesday and has been a key to her team posting a 23-7-2 overall record entering this week.

Weirich totaled 25 digs, five aces and three assists in the win over North Muskegon. In the Wayland Invitational Saturday, she notched 51 digs, 13 assists and seven aces as Shelby went 1-1-1 on the day.
