Nebraska senior outside hitter Kadie Rolfzen was named the Big Ten Player of the Week on Monday, the conference office announced.
Rolfzen averaged 4.29 kills and 2.71 digs per set to lead the Huskers to road wins over No. 19 Ohio State and Maryland over the weekend.
The Papillion-La Vista South grad matched her career high with 21 kills against Ohio State on .413 hitting while adding 11 digs for her 44th career double-double. She posted nine kills on 14 error-free swings for a .643 hitting percentage at Maryland, along with eight digs.
For the weekend, Rolfzen totaled 30 kills with just two attacking errors for a .467 hitting percentage.
The honor is the second career player-of-the-week award and first of the season for the first-team All-American. Rolfzen is the third Husker to be honored this season. Kelly Hunter is a two-time Big Ten Setter of the Week, and Amber Rolfzen was the Big Ten Defensive Player of the Week last Monday.
