Micaya White named Big 12 freshman of the week

Posted October 3rd, 2016


Micaya White earned the Big 12 freshman of the week honor Monday after her performances against Oklahoma and Kansas State last week.

She had a season-high 26 kills against Oklahoma and 20 kills and 16 digs against the Wildcats.

White has won the honor four times in the past five weeks and is the third player in program history to win the award four times in one season. Haley Eckerman won the honor four times in 2011 and Michelle Kocher won it five times in 2008.


White is third in the conference in kills and points and led the conference in points per set last week.
