Katie Carter Named Pac-10 Volleyball Player of the Week

Oct. 2, 2006

Senior outside hitter Kaite Carter was named the Pac-10 Player of the Week, Commissioner Tom Hansen announced on Oct. 2. Carter led the Bruins to a pair of victories over then-No. 4 Washington and Washington State, keeping the Bruins perfect start intact with a 17-0 (4-0 Pac-10) record.

Against the Huskies on Thursday night, Carter tied her career-high with 23 kills, hitting an impressive .312 from the outside in the match. She followed with a team-high 16 kills along with four blocks against Washington State on Friday. Carter's averages for the week were well over her previous season averages, topping her per-game kill average by nearly a full kill and posting an attack percentage 49 points higher than her previous average.

This is the first weekly honor for Carter and UCLA's 51st Pac-10 Player of the Week award all-time.
