STANFORD – Stanford middle blocker Carly Wopat has been selected as the Pac-12 women’s volleyball Offensive Player of the Week for Oct. 15-21, Commissioner Larry Scott announced on Monday.
Wopat played in high school locally at Dos Pueblos High School.
The Cardinal (18-2), which defeated No. 5 Washington and Washington State on the road last week, has now won 16 matches in a row and finished the first half of conference play with a 10-0 record.
Wopat averaged 3.10 kills, 3.75 points and 0.90 blocks per set, while hitting .422 in the two matches. The Santa Barbara, Calif., native led the team in kills at Washington, recording 15 kills on 34 attempts with just two errors for a .382 attack percentage. The win handed the Huskies their first home loss on the season. At WSU, Wopat led the team with 16 kills on a .467 hitting percentage, while only recording two errors. Wopat also tallied seven blocks, six digs and an ace against the Cougars.
It marks the third career weekly honor for Wopat and the first of the season for the junior. Last year, she became the first Pac-12 player to be named Offensive and Defensive Player of the Week in the same season. Stanford’s total player of the week count now stands at 82.
Stanford begins the second half of Pac-12 play this week against Arizona and Arizona State.
