| No Comments | No TrackBacks
Every Tuesday, UK Athletics recognizes outstanding performances for our student-athletes. These are the honorees for the week ending Sunday, September 29:

Volleyball: Whitney Billings

Senior Whitney Billings was Kentucky's impact player en route to a 3-0 week which included a pair of SEC victories on the road. Billings logged a pair of double-doubles, while reaching double-figures in the kills' column in each of the three wins. Her six blocks in the win at Alabama marked a season-high. The 17 kills was a season-best for a three-set match in the sweep of Auburn. In the two road victories in league play, Billings averaged 4.43 kills per set on a sizzling .377 hitting percentage. She also added 3.14 digs per frame and 1.43 blocks per stanza. The .448 hitting percentage against the Crimson Tide marked a season-best in a four-set match.

Volleyball: Alexandra Morgan

Senior Alexandra Morgan was terrific for the Cats in a 3-0 week. Morgan averaged 2.10 kills per set while hitting on a .472 hitting percentage. She added 17 blocks and 11 digs for the week for an average of 1.10 digs and 1.70 blocks per frame. Her nine blocks in the win at Auburn marked a season-high and just one off her career-best of 10. The nine blocks was also just one rejection shy of a single-match record in UK history for a three-set match. In the two SEC wins, Morgan averaged 2.14 kills on .429 hitting. She added a squad-best 2.14 blocks per stanza in helping UK to a pair of wins in her hometown state.
