Pair of NU volleyballers grab Big 12 honors

Nebraska volleyball players Sydney Anderson and Hannah Werth were named Offensive Player of the Week and Rookie-of-the-Week respectively. It is the sixth time that Anderson has been honored in her two-year career at NU, but her first Offensive Player-of-the-Week accolade, while Werth has been named Rookie of the Week on five occasions.
Anderson helped Nebraska to a pair of sweeps on the week, including a road win at No. 8 Iowa State. She had a .384 hitting percentage while dishing out 13.67 assists per set. Anderson also led the Big 12 with 0.83 services aces per set and added 1.00 kill on the week.
Werth recorded 3.50 kills per set on .312 hitting and 3.67 digs per set last week. At ISU, Werth led NU in both kills and digs in the Cyclone win. The ninth-ranked Huskers will return to action on Friday night, as they host Texas A&M at the NU Coliseum. First serve is set for 7 p.m.
