BOCA RATON, Fla. –
Florida Atlantic University has recognized volleyball's Sigourney Kame
and Josh Fountain
of men's swimming and diving as student-athletes of the week.
Kame made history this past week after nailing 16 kills in the Conference USA tournament match against North Texas. After the junior's performance on Friday, Kame has become the eighth player in program history to accumulate 1,000 career kills. The Paramaribo, Suriname native finished the year with a .327 hitting percentage, which is the fifth-best single-season percentage in FAU history.
Fountain also made FAU history after his performance at the Patriot Invitational, where he recorded a new school record, two first-place finishes and four personal-best times. The Lilburn, Georgia native broke a FAU freshman record in the 1650-yard freestyle, where he clocked in at 15:31.55 and took first in the event. Fountain also captured first in the 500-yard freestyle, tallying a lifetime best time of 4:29.80. The redshirt freshman capped a personal-best time in the 400-yard IM (4:06.48) and 800-yard freestyle relay as his team's anchor (1:41.84) as well.
FAU volleyball's 2018 season has come to a close but Kame and company are set out to have another dominating season in 2019. Fountain will look to break more records and personal-best times at the FAU Fun Invitational on Dec. 20 at 3 p.m. The meet will be held at FAU Aquatic Center.
