PLAYERS OF THE WEEK
OFFENSIVE
Shelbi Goode, Angelo State University, JR, Georgetown, Texas, Georgetown HS

Goode led the Angelo State volleyball team with 56 kills, including double-digit put downs in each game, as the Belles started the season with a 4-0 record. Goode, a transfer from the University of Alabama, recorded 4.67 kills per set while hitting .333 to help ASU not lose a single set in the Hilltopper/Rattler Classic. Goode also contributed 32 digs and assisted on six blocks.

Rachel Robertson, Texas A&M University - Commerce, SR, Princeton, Texas, Princeton HS
Robertson was key in helping the Lions to a perfect weekend at the Henderson State Invitational as A&M-Commerce notched four 3-0 sweeps. Robertson finished with 47 kills, a .500 hitting percentage, 10 service aces and 13 blocks in leading the Lions to their first 4-0 start since 2003. She was named to the All-Tournament team and upped her career kill total to 999, moving into a tie for ninth all-time in program history.

DEFENSIVE
Hayley Couch, Eastern New Mexico University, JR, Santa Fe, Texas, Santa Fe HS

Couch led the Zias in both digs and reception attempts for the week. In four matches, Couch attempted 110 receptions while only committing two errors for a .982 reception percentage. Over 15 total sets played, she averaged 5.60 digs per set and scooped up 84 total digs, twice as many as any other Zia. In the Zias first win against Texas Permian Basin, Couch led the dig count with 31 and was the first Zia to scoop up more than 30 digs in a single game since the 2008 season. Her 31 dig feat is good for seventh overall on ENMU’s single-game dig career list.
