Welcome to Brewer of the Week! You might be asking yourself, in the words of David Byrne, “How do I work this?” Well, it’s simple. Every week, Vassar teams compete on a variety of playing surfaces, with varying results. The individuals experience both exhilarating success and heartrending failure. Here at Brewer of the Week, we look on the bright side, and showcase a Vassar athlete who led their team to remarkable success, or in some cases nearly dragged them up from the precipice of defeat.
Vassar Athletics offers its own rendition of Brewer of the Week, spotlighting the athlete they believe showed out in a Brewer uniform. Here at the Misc, however, we believe in a diversity of opinion, and may present a different Brewer of the Week from that of the College. Or perhaps, we’ll have Brewer(s) of the week. But without further ado, our first Brewer of the Week…
Kevin Ros | Men’s Volleyball
Senior outside hitter Kevin Ros of men’s volleyball is the inaugural Brewer of the Week. Ros was named Sports Impact/AVCA National Player of the Week for the second consecutive week on Monday, Feb. 10, sharing the award with his teammate, first-year outside hitter Andrew Kim. In the Brewers’ historic five-set win over then top-ranked New Paltz on Feb. 5, Ros led Vassar in both kills and blocks, with 15 and four, respectively. On Feb. 7, the Brewers dispatched Sage, three sets to none. Ros again paced the Brewers in kills, with 11. On the season, Ros leads the Brewers, who are now ranked second nationally, in kills, with 122. The next-highest kill total is held by Kim, who has 88. He looks to add to his impressive total on Wednesday, Feb. 12, against top-ranked Springfield College.
