Oct. 28 - Hailey Roberts, a freshman outside hitter for Tarleton State University, has been named the Sports Imports/AVCA Division II National Player of the Week. Last week for the TexAnns the true freshman helped lead her squad to a pair of victories using both her strong offensive and defensive abilities. In their first match against St. Edwards, a regional rival who entered the match with a 14-2 record, Roberts smashed 26 kills, 18 digs, five aces and recorded a .351 hitting percentage. It was her team-leading 13th double-double of the season. She followed up that up with a 20-kill (.432 hitting), seven-dig and three-block performance over conference foe Texas A&M-Kingsville. For the week she averaged, 6.57 kills, 1.14 aces, 3.57 digs and 0.71 blocks per set while attacking at a .383 clip.
This is the first time a Tarleton State student-athlete has garnered Sports Imports/AVCA Player of the Week honors. The TexAnns are coached by Mary Schindler.
