Valmeyer volleyball player Tiffani Brewer is the Republic-Times Athlete of the Week this week.

The sophomore middle and outside hitter helped lead her team to the IHSA State Tournament for the first time in school history.

Brewer is receiving this week’s Athlete of the Week honors for stepping it up in the post season. During the post season, Brewer had 29 blocks (94 total blocks this season, which is the second most on the team behind senior Paige Whipple) and 14 kills (82 total kills this season).

During the Pirates post season run, she averaged 3.7 blocks per game, up from a season average of 1.07. She also averaged 2 kills per game, up from a season average of .93.

Congratulations Tiffani, good luck in your future endeavors!
