K-State’s Mutiri was named Rookie of the Week for the second time this season after hitting .419 on 15 kills in the Wildcats’ four-set win at TCU. In that match, the freshman also collected 11 digs for her third double-double of the season. Her 3.75 kills per set and .419 hitting efficiency were tops among Big 12 freshmen last week.
Glo adds to her trophy case… 🏆🏐😼
