Supernovas outside hitter Bethania de la Cruz has her best week of the season – breaking multiple franchise records – to earn Pro Volleyball Federation Player of the Week presented by Franklin Sports. It is the second consecutive week an Omaha player has been recognized.

A native of the Dominican Republic, she totaled a franchise-record 26 kills on a 4.18 clip with 13 digs and three blocks versus the San Diego Mojo on April 2. She also had her 24th ace of the season in the match, while her kill total accounted for 50 percent of the Supernovas kills on the night.

De la Cruz followed up that performance by tying her own team mark with 26 kills against Columbus on April 4. She noticed a franchise-record .585 hitting percentage on 41 swings with only two errors. She also notched 14 digs, which equaled her season best.

Overall, de la Cruz recorded 52 kills on a .490 hitting percentage with 27 digs, three blocks and one ace, resulting in 7.4 kills and 3.9 digs per set.
