DENVER – New Mexico State volleyball's Julianna Salanoa was named the Western Athletic Conference Defensive Player of the Week, the league announced on Monday. This is the sophomore's first WAC honor this season and the first of her career as an Aggie.
Salanoa led the WAC with 2.67 blocks per set, almost one block per set more than any other player, when NM State swept a pair of road matches last week. Against Kansas City, she tallied a career-best nine blocks and was one shy of posting her first career double-double as she also had 10 kills in the match. At Chicago State, the middle blocker finished with a match-high seven blocks. Salanoa also recorded a pair of digs on the weekend.
The Aggies are back in action when the team travels to Edinburg, Texas, for a conference clash against UT Rio Grande Valley on Saturday, Oct. 13. First serve from the contest is set for 6 p.m. MT.
