WKU volleyball ranked No. 23, two players snag C-USA weekly awards

The WKU volleyball team (21-1, 7-0 C-USA) collected more honors on Monday afternoon, as the Lady Toppers moved up one spot to No. 23 in the AVCA Division I Coaches Poll and a pair of newcomers received weekly awards from Conference USA.

Junior Nadia Dieudonne was named Setter of the Week for the fourth time this season, while freshman Paige Briggs also earned Freshman of the Week recognition for the fourth time in 2019.

No. 23 WKU — ranked No. 24 last week — earned both individual and team accolades after the program secured its 20th straight season with at least 20 wins by defeating Middle Tennessee State (7-13, 1-5 C-USA) and Texas San-Antonio (13-8, 6-2 C-USA) in a pair of clean 3-0 sweeps over the weekend.
