Following a career-best 26 kills against Mississippi State, Auburn volleyball freshman Akasha Anderson garnered SEC Co-Freshman of the Week honors. The Reston, Va. native’s 26 kills and 10 digs were good for her fourth double-double of the season.
Anderson leads all active Auburn players in attacks (488), kills per set (3.52) and points per set (4.03). She also leads the Tigers’ outside hitters in digs per set (1.90).
The award marks the fifth weekly honor that Auburn has captured this season and the third time a Tiger was named Freshman of the Week. Kendal Kemp and Madison Scheer won the award in weeks one and five respectively.
Head coach Brent Crouch's team is the hottest in Auburn right now, sitting at a 14-0 through the start of the season. They have already played two SEC teams, racking up three wins through the past two weeks.
Auburn volleyball returns to play Wednesday on the road against LSU at 7 p.m. CT. The match will be available on the SEC Network.
