Kirstie Hillyer named Defensive Player of the Week

Midway through October, Colorado State senior Kirstie Hillyer won Mountain West Volleyball Offensive Player of the Week. Now, nearly a month later, Hillyer just received MW Defensive Player of the Week for her tremendous performance in the Rams’ recent slate of games.

Hillyer’s award is historic for the Colorado State volleyball team. After receiving her seventh weekly award, Hillyer now stands alone in weekly awards in Colorado State volleyball history.

In the Rams’ sweep against Utah State, Hillyer led the Rams in blocks with four.  In the dominant sweep against Boise State, she was able to put up nine blocks. Hillyer averaged 2.17 blocks per set through the two matchups.

Hillyer received her award just a couple days after the Rams claimed the MW Championship after sweeping Boise State. This season has been nothing short of fantastic for the Rams as they head into their final road stretch of the regular season. CSU will hit the road to take on San Jose State on Nov. 21, University of Nevada on Nov. 23 and the University of Denver on Nov. 30.   

Currently, the Rams are sitting at 26-1 overall and 16-0 in conference play, enough to get them ranked No. 11 in the nation. Moby Madness electrifies the team, as they are 15-1 at home. Still, the Rams are able to bring the thunder on the road, posting a 9-0 record. The Rams’ one and only loss came at the very beginning of the season against the No. 24 University of California. Since that game on Aug. 31, CSU has won 25 straight games.
