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

Dec. 14, 2011

Junior outside hitter 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 Dec. 5-11.

Kidder was named the Lexington Regional Most Outstanding Player after leading the ninth-seeded Bruins to victories over four-time defending national champion Penn State and top-seeded Texas last weekend. Kidder, who was recently named a first-team AVCA All-American, led the Bruins in kills in both contests, posting a match-high 26 kills in a four-set win over Texas in the Regional Championship and a match-best 15 in a sweep of Penn State in the Regional Semifinals. Kidder averaged 5.86 kills per set and hit .392 for the weekend.

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

Also nominated: Ryan Hollingshead, M. Soccer; Lazeric Jones, M. Basketball.
