WALNUT CREEK, Calif.-- Senior All-America outside hitter Asia Kaczor has been named the Pac-10 Volleyball Player of the Week for Nov. 12-18, Commissioner Tom Hansen announced today.
Kaczor, a senior from Wroclaw, Poland, led the eighth-ranked Trojans to victories last weekend over No. 5 Washington and Washington State. Against the Huskies, Kaczor set USC and Pac-10 Conference records with 44 killsand 100 attempts in the five-game win on Friday. The following night, Kaczor had 11 kills and two aces in a 3-0 sweep of Washington State.
For the weekend, Kaczor hit .285, totaled 55 kills (6.88 kpg) and 15 digs (2.62 dpg). It is Kaczor's fifth weekly honor and USC's 42nd Pac-10 Player of the Week all-time.
With her efforts this weekend, Kaczor becomes the first USC player to record 500 or more kills in a season twice. Her current total of 501 ties her for third on USC's single-season list with Bibiana Candelas (2005). She holds the school record with 563, set last year while Jennifer (Kessy) Boss is second with 554 in 1998.
