COLUMBUS, Ohio — Ted Schoenfeldt, a 6-5 junior opposite for the 11th-ranked Ohio State Buckeyes (12-9 overall, 8-1 Midwestern Intercollegiate Volleyball Association), has been named the Sports Imports/American Volleyball Coaches Association Division I-II National Player of the week and the MIVA Player of the Week. He helped Ohio State earn at least a share of the MIVA regular-season championship with his play in wins at No. 15 Loyola Chicago and No. 11 Lewis.

Schoenfeldt posted a match-high 15.5 points at Loyola-Chicago (30-21, 30-25, 31-29) with a co-match-high 13 kills (.455) and five assist blocks. He added four digs in the match. In the close third game he had four kills and four assist blocks. In the 3-1 (30-24, 19-30, 30-26, 30-23) victory at Lewis, the first home loss of the season for the Flyers, Schoenfeldt recorded a match-high 22 points with a match-high 19 kills (.308), one ace serve and four assist blocks. He tied his career high of 11 digs against Lewis for his first career double-double (kills-digs). Tied at one game each, Schoenfeldt hit .428 in the final two games, hitting .250 (5-2-12) in game three and .667 (7-1-9) in game four. In the two matches, he averaged 5.36 points, 4.57 kills, 2.14 digs and 1.29 blocks per game while hitting .361.

Schoenfeldt is the Ohio State team leader in points per game at 3.95 this season. He ranks second in kills per game at 3.30 and fourth in digs (1.19) and blocks (.71) per game. Schoenfeldt ranks second in aces per game at .23 and is fourth in attack percentage at .306.

Ohio State returns to St. John Arena at 7 p.m. Friday to host IPFW (12-10, 3-3). A win over the Mastodons give the Buckeyes the outright conference championship.
