COLORADO SPRINGS -- BYU junior outside hitter Sunny Mahe was named the Mountain West Conference Volleyball Player of the Week, marking the second time overall she has earned the award.

A native of Allen, Texas (Allen HS), Mahe led BYU with 45 kills (3.75 per game) and a .330 hitting percentage (45k-11e-103a) as the Cougars posted a 2-1 record at the Washington Tournament in Seattle last weekend.

For the week, Mahe racked up 23 digs, (1.92 per game), 13 total blocks (1.08 per game), four aces (.33 per game) and 56.5 points, which ranks second in the MWC.

The Cougars, ranked No. 16 in the USA Today/AVCA Top 25 poll, face Rhode Island today at home before hosting the Mizuno Classic beginning Thursday vs. No. 23 Colorado.
