WALNUT CREEK, Calif. -- Washington State's Kyra Holt was named the Pac-12 Volleyball Freshman of the Week for her play during the week of Nov. 11-17.

 

Holt, a 6-1 outside hitter from Hercules, Calif., had 31 kills to lead the Cougars during the two five-set matches last weekend, including the 13 kills in WSU's 3-2 come from behind win against No. 4 USC in Pullman Nov. 17.

Holt leads the team offensively with a 3.85 kps average and a 4.52 pps average, both which are seventh-best in the Pac-12. Her 0.29 service aces per set average leads the Cougars and is eighth-best in the Pac-12. Holt has recorded double-digit kills in 26 of the 29 Cougars' matches this season and has had 11 double-doubles with kills and digs. Her 420 kills this season is 28 from 10th-best on the WSU all-time single season list. Earlier this season, Holt was named MVP of the Army Black Knights Invite and the MVP of the Sam Houston State Invite and was the Pac-12 Freshman of the Week 9/2-8 and also 10/28-11-3.
