DENVER - Senior outside hitter Sarah Conwell has been named Western Athletic Conference Volleyball Player of the Week for the week of Oct. 5-11. This is the second WAC Player of the Week honor of the season for Conwell and the second of her career.

The Kent, Wash. (Kentwood HS), native tallied 39 kills, 37 digs and six blocks over two matches as Idaho went 1-1 last week. Conwell averaged league-bests of 4.88 kills and 5.31 points per set and tallied her sixth and seventh career double-doubles to move her current streak to four. She opened the week with 18 kills, 11 digs and five blocks in a sweep of Louisiana Tech. She followed that up with 21 kills and a career-high 26 digs in a five-set loss at Fresno State.

In WAC contests, Conwell currently leads the conference in kills (4.50 kps) and points (5.12 pps) while ranking fifth in digs (3.90 dps) and eighth in blocks (1.10 bps).

The Vandals end a stretch of three games in five days with a match at Boise State Monday (Oct. 12) at 6 p.m. PT. Idaho can regain sole possession of third place in the WAC standings with a win and a victory also would be No. 650 for the Vandal program.
