CORVALLIS, Ore. – Freshman Anastasija Svetnik was tabbed Pac-12 Freshman of the Week for her performance at California, the conference announced Tuesday afternoon. This is the first honor of her career.
 
She is the second Beaver to earn the honor this season, the last being Mychael Vernon on Feb. 12.
 
Svetnik was unstoppable in Oregon State's weekend sweep of California on Mar. 5 and 7 as she recorded an attacking percentage of .704, tallying 19 kills in 27 attempts with no errors.
 
The freshman middle hitter has been on fire over the last five games with a total of 34 kills off 52 attempts with only two errors for an attacking percentage of .616.
 
The Minsk, Belarus native, tallied an individual team-high of five aces in the second match along with a match-high four blocks.
 
In the two games against Cal, Svetnik led OSU with six service aces and nine blocks. She finished the weekend third on the team with 2.38 kills per set.
 
Currently, she leads Oregon State with a .357 attacking percentage and sits second with 11 service aces. Her 26 total blocks is the third-highest for the Beavers this year.
 
Oregon State returns to action on Friday at 6 pm (PT) in Gill Coliseum against Washington State.
