Volleyball Announces 2003 Season Awards
May 10, 2004
CORVALLIS, Ore. - Allison Lawrence was named the Most Valuable Player at the volleyball team's end of the year celebration on Friday night.
Lawrence, an honorable mention All-Pacific-10 pick in 2003, led the Beavers in kills, digs, aces and points per game and ranked among the top 10 players in the Pacific-10 in all four categories. Her 425 kills and 388 digs rank seventh on OSU's single-season charts, and her 47 aces tie for ninth.
Windell entered the season as a potential redshirt candidate but ended up starting 12 matches as a true freshman. She earned All-Tournament honors at the Charlotte Invitational, where she hit .439 with 20 kills in her first two collegiate starts. She started five matches as a right side hitter but switched to middle blocker later in the season and started the final seven matches of the year in that position.
Eggert finished the season with a .325 hitting percentage - the fourth best in OSU history. She led the team with 92 total blocks. Her statistics were key factor in the team's success, but her enthusiasm and energy played a big role as well, leading her to receive the Most Inspirational award.
