PROVO, Utah – Junior middle blocker Amy Boswell was named the West Coast Conference Player of the Week, the league announced Monday, after helping lead No. 10 BYU women's volleyball to road sweeps of in-state rivals Utah and Utah Valley last week.
On Thursday, against the Utes, Boswell had seven kills on 12 attempts for a .583 clip. Additionally, she had her second-highest dig total of the season with four and added three blocks and two aces. Then, on Saturday at Utah Valley, Boswell collected eight kills on 11 attempts for a .727 clip. Her hitting percentage was just one kill shy of adding her name to the BYU rally-scoring era record books. She also added a team-high four blocks, an assist and an ace in the win.
For the week, Boswell hit without an attack error, 15-0-23, for a .652 clip – more than twice her career average. She also added seven blocks, four digs and three aces combined in front of record-setting crowds for each match.
This is Boswell's first conference weekly honor of the year and second of her career. It is the second honor for the Cougars in four weeks of competition after Alexa Gray won the award two weeks ago.
