SAN BRUNO, Calif. – The West Coast Conference has named its Volleyball Player of the Week for November 30, 2015. This is the final weekly honor of the 2015 season.
WEST COAST CONFERENCE PLAYER OF THE WEEK – ALEXA GRAY, SR., OH - BYU
Senior outside hitter Alexa Gray led No. 11 BYU women’s volleyball to a four-set win over Pepperdine last week to secure an outright West Coast Conference Championship.
Gray led the Cougars on the night with 29 kills, just two shy of her career high, to go along with 12 digs for her ninth double-double of the season. Her 29 kills were the sixth-most kills collected by a BYU player in rally-scoring era history. Gray also holds the fourth- and fifth-place spots, earned earlier this year. Her 75 attempts were good for the No. 2 spot all-time in BYU rally-scoring era history. Gray now holds the first-, second-, third- and fourth-place spots in the rally-scoring era attempts category.
The win, which took place on senior night, helps the Cougars finish off a 26-3, 16-2 regular season record.
It is the fifth Player of the Week nod for Gray in 2015, the most for a student-athlete since Ali Troost of San Diego also captured five in 2010. Gray has won eight WCC weekly honors during her All-American career at BYU, which ties the all-time record for the conference. Gray matches Loyola Marymount Olympians Sarah McFarland and Sarah Noriega and three-time Pepperdine All-American Katie Wilkins with eight career honors.
Also Nominated: Faith Smith, Gonzaga; Rachelle Suaava, Loyola Marymount
