Two Kansas University volleyball players were named Big 12 players of the week, and the Jayhawks ascended to unprecedented heights in the national rankings and NCAA RPI projections.
KU’s Sara McClinton was named the league’s offensive player of the week, and Caroline Jarmoc was defensive player of the week after KU (19-3 overall, 7-1 Big 12) extended its school record of home wins in a season to 12 straight with victories over Kansas State and Texas Christian.
Kansas moved up to No. 17 in the American Volleyball Coaches Association Div. I coaches poll and is No. 8 in the NCAA RPI projection — the highest in school history in both categories.
