Carlie Foust Earns Second Big 12 Defensive Award
Carlie Foust matched a career-high 29 digs in a 3-2 victory over Oklahoma Wednesday, September 23. That career number helped earn her Big 12 Volleyball Defensive Player of the week.
It's the second time this season that Foust has earned the award after notching a win on August 31. This makes her the third Red Raider to win the defensive award multiple times in the season.
After racking up 29 digs against Oklahoma, she added 22 digs at Iowa State, ranking her fifth in three-set matches in the Big 12 this season and the most in a conference head-to-head contest. It was the fifth match this season that she’s posted 20 or more digs.
"Having put in a lot of quality work has really paid off for Carlie," head coach Don Flora said. "She continues to see the game in a good rhythm, which has helped her compete at a high level. Her drive to get better in matches has been a real plus for her and her teammates."
Her 51 digs over the two games gave her a conference-high 6.38 average per set last week, maintaining her third-place standing in the Big 12 at 5.00 digs per set.
Foust and the Red Raiders hit the road for Waco for a match against Baylor on Wednesday, Sept. 30 at 7 p.m.
