On Wednesday, Texas junior outside hitter Micaya White became the 20th player in school history to record 1,000 kills in a career.

White’s milestone moment came during a 19-kill effort in a five-set win at TCU. A two-time All-American, White has now compiled 1,001 kills during her time at Texas.

The placement of White among the Longhorns’ all-time leaders in kills comes with some caveats. Six of the names above White’s played at least a part of their careers during a time when rally scoring to 30 points was used in sets. Side-out scoring was used for nine of the players on the list. White trails 19th-place Paulina Prieto Cerame by four kills, although Prieto Cerame’s 89 kills at Penn State in 2013 are not included.

A Frisco native, White leads Texas this season with her 3.65 kills per set. She was named the Big 12’s offensive player of the week on Monday.
