The latest American Athletic Conference awards are out and the conference leader, Wichita State, collected another award with middle blocker Abbie Lehman. Joining Lehman on the award list was a team behind the Shockers in second of the conference in Brittany Adams of SMU.

Lehman, a senior, helped Wichita State to another unbeaten week, as they’ve done every chance they’ve gotten this season. This is also her second straight honor after winning the offensive award last week.
