A two-year starter at Oregon State, Izzi Szulczewski contributes on both the attacking and defensive sides of the court. The sophomore recorded Oregon State's first triple-double in five years, earning Pac-12 Defensive Player of the Week honors. Szulczewski racked up 22 digs to go with 12 assists and 11 kills for the triple-double and averaged 6.13 digs per set over the weekend, 1.13 more than any other Pac-12 player. She followed the performance with another triple-double against Tulane (9/17) dishing out 22 assists to go with 13 digs and 12 kills and has recorded a triple-double or double-double in the last four matches for the Beavs.
The Beavers are leading the PAC-12 in digs per set to this point of the 2022 season, averaging 15.53 DPS. In 2021, the Beavers finished fourth in the Pac12 with 14.20 digs per set, led by then-senior Grace Massey (4.40 d/set). With Massey lost to graduation, OSU has looked towards Szulczewski (3.44 d/ set), Ryan White (3.26 d/set) and Emma Villaluz (2.46 d/set) on the back row.
More than a third of Oregon State's roster came to Corvallis from outside the United States, including two of OSU's five freshmen and transfer setter Inna Balyko. The Beavs are one of just four Pac-12 teams with multiple international student-athletes.
