Hart Named Pac-12 Defensive Player Of The Week
SAN FRANCISCO — Colorado women's volleyball graduate student Meegan Hart was named the Pac-12 Defensive Player Of The Week, the conference announced Monday.
Hart led the Buffs to a 2-0 conference start with a pair of sweeps at Utah and against ASU. Hart combined for 21 kills and a .655 hitting percentage in the wins, including a season-high .706 hitting percentage against ASU.
Hart now leads the NCAA in hitting percentage at .500 this season. She has had three-straight matches hitting .583 or better and has hit greater than .500 in seven matches this season.
This is Hart's third Pac-12 weekly honor, earning a Pac-12 Defensive Player of the Week honor in 2019 and the spring of 2021. She joins Naghede Abu and Brynna DeLuzio as the only Buffs to earn three Pac-12 weekly honors. The Buffs have now had three of the five Pac-12 Defensive Player of the Week honors this season.
Washington's Ella May Powell was named the Pac-12 Offensive Player of the Week, while Oregon's Mimi Colyer earned her fourth Pac-12 Freshman of the Week honor this season.
