Huth’s top performance came on Friday night with a 15-kill effort against TWU where she also added six digs and four blocks. Along with her impressive attacking totals, the junior also finished the week with 11 blocks and 13 digs.
Shelby Wilt, Angelo State University, SO, Dalhart, Texas, Dalhart HS
Wilt continues to be a pain for opposing team’s offenses with her tremendous play on the defensive side of each volleyball match. Wilt helped lead the Belles to three wins last week by having 5.50 digs per set and leading ASU with 66 digs during the matches. Wilt’s defense helped limit opponents to a .141 hitting percentage in the matches and has the Belles on a three-match winning streak going into road matches at Midwestern State and Cameron this week.
Erin Dougherty, West Texas A&M University, SR, Omaha, Neb., Mercy
Dougherty continued to impress on the front row for the #7 Lady Buffs this past weekend with 14 total blocks as they went 2-0 on the road against Incarnate Word and Texas A&M-Kingsville. The Omaha native registered 21 kills for an average of 3.50 per set to hit an incredible .471 on the weekend with two solo and 12 block assists (2.33 per set).
Sarah Siemens, Abilene Christian University, FR, Bakersfield, Calif., Stockdale HS
Siemens set a pair of Lone Star Conference season highs over the weekend as her Wildcats went 3-0 last weekend at the ACU/Whitten Inn Classic over Midwestern State, Cameron and Texas-Permian Basin. Siemens, who finished the tournament with 132 assists and a 13.20 per set average, first recorded a conference season-high for a three-set match with 44 assists against the Mustangs, and then the following morning vs. Cameron established a conference season-high for a four-set match with 53 assists vs. the Aggies. Siemens’ total of 53 assists was her second-highest of the season, second only to a 56 assist performance in a 3-2 win at Eastern New Mexico. Siemens’ efforts as a setter have her ranked fourth in the conference with 9.85 assists per game. On defense, she also was a bully at the net in coming through with nine of the team’s 20.0 blocks - five solo and four assist. Her 4.0 blocks vs. MSU and Cameron tied a season best.
Alex Woolsey, Angelo State University, SR, Plano, Texas, Plano East HS
