COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. – For the second time this season, Colorado State junior Deedra Foss has been named the Mountain West Women’s Volleyball Player of the Week. The MW made the announcement Monday after Foss led CSU (25-0, 16-0 MW) to a pair of victories, helping the Rams win their fifth consecutive conference championship.
In home victories over New Mexico and Air Force, Foss averaged 12.71 assists per set, in addition to 0.86 aces, 0.86 blocks, 2.43 digs and 0.57 kills on .364 hitting. Her assists-per-set average was nearly a full assist higher than her season average, which leads the league and ranks eighth nationally.
In a win Thursday against then-second-place New Mexico, Foss recorded her eighth double-double of the season with 45 assists and 11 digs. The following night, against Air Force, she averaged 14.67 assists per set (44 total) in a three-set victory. Foss also recorded a career-high five service aces, including four during a 9-0 CSU run, which helped the Rams turn a 5-10 deficit into a 14-10 lead in Set 2, which they held for the remainder of the set.
“I felt that Deedra played a really good game, not just as a setter, but she did a lot of extra things today,” Head Coach Tom Hilbert said following the win over the Falcons. “She was all over the place doing a lot of things for us at critical times in the match.”
As a team, CSU hit .333 against Air Force. Foss had a match-high-tying four blocks, in addition to three kills and six digs.
The award is CSU’s fifth on the season, the program's most since 2007. Foss and teammate Adrianna Culbert are the only two players in the MW to earn the honor twice. Senior Samantha Peters has also been selected this year.
The Rams will make their final road trip of the regular season this week, traveling to San José State (Thursday, 8 p.m. MT) and Fresno State (Saturday, moved up to 12 p.m. MT). Both matches can be streamed on the Mountain West Network.
