I thought I’d give a little shout out to the BYU women’s volleyball team. I must admit that after seeing BYU Men’s volleyball team play, the women’s volleyball is just not the same.
However, any national ranking for BYU is a great thing. So, congrats to the BYU women’s team for having a national ranking almost all year.
Here’s some other interesting statistics about the BYU Women’s volleyball team:
BYU has swept nine of the 14 matches it has played this season. Of the seven overall statistical categories tracked by the league, BYU players lead the conference in three of them (hitting percentage — Rachel Dyer; kills — Erica Lott; points — Erica Lott) and are second in two others (blocks — Lindsy Hartsock; aces — Chelsea Goodman). Cougar Jenna Judkins is ranked third in assists and Goodman and Janvier Beaumont are also ranked ninth and tenth, respectively, in digs. The Cougars also boast three of the league’s top five players in hitting percentage with Dyer (1st – .410), Hartsock (2nd – .404) and Lott (5th – .336).
