Valparaiso senior outside hitter Angie Porché (Lynwood, Ill./Thornton Fractional South) has been named the inaugural recipient of ‘The People’s Choice’ honor on the Horizon League Network, and is currently highlighted in the featured video on HLN via phone interview.

‘The People’s Choice’ is a new weekly segment on HLN that allows fans to choose which athlete they believed had the most outstanding week among the Horizon League’s Athletes of the Week.  Voting is open from Monday around noon through Tuesday afternoon each week, with an interview with the winner posted on HLN Thursday afternoon.

Porché earned Offensive Player of the Week honors and was named to the All-Tournament team at the Pitt Blue and Gold Tournament after posting 36 kills over last weekend’s three matches, including a sweep of Youngstown State in the Crusaders’ Horizon League opener.  In her interview with HLN’s Damon Lewis, Porché looks back at last week’s action while also looking ahead to the home opener on Friday.
