Rachael Kidder Named UCLA/Muscle Milk Student-Athlete of the Week

Aug. 31, 2010

Sophomore opposite Rachael Kidder (Moorpark, CA/Moorpark HS) of the UCLA women's volleyball team was selected as the UCLA/Muscle Milk Student-Athlete of the Week for Aug. 23-29.

Kidder averaged 3.10 kills per set and was named to the Chevron Rainbow Wahine Invitational All-Tournament Team after helping the 16th-ranked Bruins to a 2-1 record last weekend in Honolulu. She posted a .354 hitting percentage to go along with five blocks, eight digs and three service aces. On Friday against Kansas State, Kidder came off the bench and had a perfect night, recording nine kills and no errors in 12 swings for a .750 hitting percentage to go with a team-best 12.0 points. Seven of her nine kills came in the final set of the sweep, as she also added four blocks and three digs. The following night against 22nd-ranked San Diego, Kidder earned the start and had nine kills for the second straight match with a service ace in a three-set sweep. In the weekend finale against #5 Hawai'i, the sophomore tied for the team lead with 13 kills, her first-career, double-figure kills contest. She added four digs, an ace and a block.

This is Kidder's first UCLA/Muscle Milk Student-Athlete of the Week honor of the season and of her career.

Also nominated: Jenna Richmond, W. Soccer.
