PLAYERS OF THE WEEK
OFFENSIVE
Hailey Roberts, Tarleton State University, SR, Cedar Park, Texas, Cedar Park HS
Roberts returned to form after missing a game last weekend as the senior standout from Cedar Park landed 32 kills in six sets to lead Tarleton to its ninth and 10th consecutive victories. Roberts and the TexAnns swept their way through the New Mexico road trip and move to 4-0 on that road trip since Western New Mexico joined the conference last season. Tarleton is the only LSC school to sweep the Mustangs and Greyhounds on the road over that span. Last weekend, Roberts boasted 32 kills in two sweeps for an average of 5.33 kills per set on a .299 hitting percentage. She also added two assists, an ace, 18 digs, three blocks, and 34.5 total points for Tarleton.

DEFENSIVE
Savannah Rutledge, Texas A&M University-Commerce, SO, The Woodlands, Texas, College Park HS
Rutledge was all over for the Lions as she led the team with 48 digs, averaging 6.0 per set in the Lions' two wins last week. She had a career-high 32 digs in A&M-Commerce's 3-2 road win against West Texas A&M. Rutledge received 20 serves against the Lady Buffs without a return error and also had five assists and an ace. She then had 16 digs without a return error and added an ace in the Lions sweep of UT Permian Basin. Rutledge helped hold Lion opponents to just a .113 hitting average. She is fifth in the conference in service aces per set and 10th in digs per set.

SETTER
Jordyn Keamo, Tarleton State University, SR, Mililani, Hawaii, Mililani HS
Keamo continued her dominant senior season as she led Tarleton to two more wins on the road at Eastern and Western New Mexico last weekend to extend the TexAnns' winning streak to 10. Keamo dished out 58 assists in six sets for an average of 9.67 assists per set in back-to-back sweeps. She also added 10 kills, two aces, 13 digs, four blocks, and 14.0 total points for the week.
