Big West Athlete of the Week: Haleigh Hampton

Women's Volleyball Haleigh Hampton receives Big West Athlete of the Week for the second time this season. The sophomore middle blocker led Your 49ers this past weekend with two victories on the road against Cal Poly and UC Santa Barbara. The team now holds a 8-2 record in the Big West Conference and continues to lead the conference standings.

Hampton led the 49ers in kills, in the game against Cal Poly Hampton tallied a season's best 20 kills, just one shy of her career record of 21. At UC Santa Barbara Hampton had 19 kills, and led the team to a four-set win over the Gauchos. She also leads the conference in blocking, and is among the leaders for both hitting percentage and kills per set in conference matches.

Your 49ers return to the Walter Pyramid this weekend to host UC Riverside on Friday and Cal State Northridge on Saturday. UC Riverside was the last team in the Big West to defeat Your 49ers, and the women's volleyball team will be looking to secure the win at home.

First serve is set to go off at 7PM, GO BEACH!
