Stanford middle blocker Audriana Fitzmorris has been selected the Pac-12 Offensive Player and Freshman of the Week, the conference announced Monday.
The rookie volleyball player averaged a team-high 3.50 kills on .520 hitting, 1.38 blocks and 4.44 points per set in Cardinal wins over then-No. 17 Illinois and then-No. 13 Penn State as a part of the Big Ten/Pac-12 Challenge in Boulder, Colo.
In Stanford’s first sweep over Penn State since 2010, Fitzmorris posted eight kills on .438 hitting, again committing just one attack error, to go with four blocks and an ace.
It is the first offensive award for Fitzmorris and the second straight week Stanford now has 98 total player of the week honors. It also marks the 17th freshman of the week accolade for the Cardinal, which is the most all-time in the conference.
The Cardinal (3-1) plays host to the Stanford Invitational beginning Friday night at Maples Pavilion.
Stanford faces No. 20 Purdue on Friday at 8 p.m. on the Pac-12 Network and Cal Poly on Sunday at 1 p.m.
