In addition to joining the 1,000 dig club, two players joined even more elite company by coupling it with their already posted 1,000 kill totals: Oregon State’s Mary-Kate Marshall and Oral Roberts’ Laura Milos.

The list will only continue to grow throughout the rest the of the season. The next three on the list each need less than 10 digs to join the ranks, each with projected achievements on Friday.

Approaching 1,000

Name, School Class Position Sets Played Digs
Christen Augustine, Prairie View Jr. DS 297 996
Sydney Kuhn, Notre Dame Sr. OH 433 993
Delaney D’Amore, St. John’s (NY) Sr. L/DS 392 991

Augstine will have her next shot at the mark as Prairie View A&M plays Alabama A&M in the SWAC Tournament. Fry also will eye the milestone on Friday as the Fighting Irish face North Carolina. D’Amore looks to achieve the feat as St. John’s plays host to Xavier.

Cornell’s Kiley McPeek (993) and Louisiana Tech’s Jacie McClure (991) ended their careers just shy of the milestone as Cornell’s season ended Nov. 11 and Louisiana Tech’s last match was Nov. 9.

Seven other players need just 20 digs to reach the milestone, while expanding the list to 30 digs needed would add eight more names.
