Texas State volleyball middle blocker, Madison Daigle, has just been awarded the Sun Belt Conference Freshman of the Week recognition.
Louisiana native, Daigle won her second award this season having shown such an outstanding performance over UL Lafayette, as she helped the Bobcats in a 3-0 shutout victory over the Raging Cajuns.
In fact, the Bobcats had two consecutive games with shutouts in Louisiana; the first being 3-0 over UL Monroe last Thursday.
This is the third award for Texas State this season after defensive specialist, Sierra Smith, was awarded Defensive Student-Athlete of the Week.
Freshman Daigle averaged nine kills per match, ending with 18 kills for the week. In addition, she had a .349 hitting percentage.
On Saturday against UL Lafayette, Daigle stood out with nine kills with two errors on 17 attempts for a .412 hitting percentage.
Daigle was tied for the team lead in kills last week to keep the Texas State in third place in the Sun Belt Conference.
As of November 9th, Daigle leads Texas State in a hitting percentage of (.312) and is second in blocks (60.0).
Stay Updated: Bobcat fans can see Daigle in action Friday night at 6:30 p.m. at Strahan Coliseum against South Alabama for the season finale match-up.
