Kristee Porter Selected Student-Athlete Of The Week

Oct. 8, 2001

Senior outside hitter Kristee Porter (Tyler, Texas/John Tyler HS) of the UCLA women's volleyball was selected the Student-Athlete of the Week for the week of Oct. 1-7.

Porter made history during Thursday's match against Washington when she passed a career total of 2,115 kills set by Pac-10 Player of the Decade, Natalie Willams, from 1989-92. It took Williams 137 matches and 458 games played to set the previous Pac-10 and UCLA career record of 2,115 career kills, while Porter surpassed that mark in the 103rd match and 371st game of her career. Porter recorded the record-breaking kill as UCLA held a 14-6 lead over the Huskies in game two of the Bruins' 3-1 win. She turned in a 20-kill performance in that four-game match, the only 20-kill match of the weekend in the Pac-10 in a match shorter than five games.

In a 3-0 win over Washington State Friday, Porter followed with a match-high 13-kill performance.

Porter now has 2,139 career kills and her next kill, most likely on Thursday night against Stanford, will move her into a tie with Minnesota's Andrea Gonzalez for 20th on the NCAA's all-time list.

This is Porter's third Student-Athlete of the Week honor this season and the school-record eighth of her career.

Also nominated: Ben Aragon (men's cross country), Brett Ormsby (men's water polo), Stephanie Rigamat (women's soccer), Carolyn Shea (women's cross country), Matt Taylor (men's soccer).
