Texas Tech setter Kyndal Cowan had a big day at practice on Friday as head coach Tony Graystone announced that the junior would be placed on scholarship beginning this spring.

Cowan played in just 19 of the team’s 125 sets in 2017, but started three of the nine matches in which she played. She managed four kills, 118 assists (6.21 per set), two aces and 35 digs (1.84 per set).

After seeing limited action in six matches in September and October, Cowan started three straight matches, Oct. 21 to 28. She earned her first start at Kansas and accounted for 25 assists and eight digs in the contest. The Midland, Texas, native followed that with a 24 assist, four dig effort vs. Baylor and dished out a season-best 43 assists and added 17 digs against Kansas State on Oct. 28.

Cowan played in just three sets as a true freshman at Oklahoma in 2015. She then notched 55 assists, 16 digs and two aces in six matches with TTU in 2016, including her first career start vs. TCU.

The Red Raiders went 19-15 in 2017, including a championship match appearance at the NIVC Tournament.
