Every Tuesday, UK Athletics recognizes outstanding performances for our student-athletes. These are the honorees for the week ending Sunday, Sept. 19:
Football: Mike Hartline
Completed 21 of 29 passes for 250 yards and two touchdowns.
Football: Derrick Locke
Had 17 carries for 166 yards and two touchdowns; also caught three passes for 29 yards.
Women's soccer: Sydney Hiance
Hiance recorded her third and fourth shutouts of the season on the week. Her shutout against South Alabama was the 19th of her career moving her to third place on Kentucky's all-time shutout list, one shy of second. Hiance and the Wildcats' defense have recorded three straight shutouts and have yet to allow a goal at home this season in five matches.
Volleyball: Elizabeth Koberstein
Freshman setter Elizabeth Koberstein made her first career start in a victory over South Carolina. Koberstein was sensational in her first complete action, dishing out a UK season-high 48 assists and leading UK to a season-best .328 hitting percentage. UK's 58 kills in the match are the most in a four-set match this season. Four UK attackers registered over 10 kills and two players posted .330 hitting clips or better. Koberstein was also terrific in her dispersal of the ball as all four players with 10 or more kills had between 26 and 28 total attempts. Koberstein saw limited action in the third set against No. 3 Florida where she was effective in dishing out six assists during the later portion of the stanza.
Cross country: Chelsea Oswald
Chelsea Oswald and the Kentucky women's cross country team claimed victories at the 2010 Br. John "Paddy" Doyle/Iona Meet of Champions in Bronx, N.Y., on Saturday. Oswald breezed through the six-kilometer course winning the race by nearly 13 seconds with a time of 21:41.68 to take the women's individual title, the second of her career. The team followed suit winning the meet with 62 points in a much tighter contest between the Wildcats, Brown and LaSalle. The top three teams were separated by only three points with Brown and LaSalle divided by a single tally. Two weeks ago in San Francisco, Oswald finished second with the team paralleling her performance with a runner-up finish.
Volleyball: Lauren Rapp
Senior Lauren Rapp led the Wildcats to a 1-1 week to open SEC action. The middle blocker from Indianapolis recorded 24 kills for the weekend on a sizzling .447 hitting percentage. She also paced the frontline defense with 11 total blocks for 1.38 blocks per frame as UK totaled 10 or more blocks in both matches this weekend. Rapp led the Wildcats in blocking in both matches. She also had a season-high 16 kills on a dazzling .500 hitting clip in the victory over South Carolina, UK's seventh straight in that series. Her 3.81 points per set is well above her 3.17 average for the season, and her hitting clip was nearly over .200 points higher than average.
Football: Danny Trevathan
Led team with eight tackles, including a tackle for loss.
