Volleyball: Wisnoskie Receives Sun Belt Freshman of the Week Honor

Wisnoskie Freshman of the Week 11.6.17 

LAFAYETTE – Louisiana Ragin’ Cajuns Volleyball freshman outside hitter Hali Wisnoskie claimed Sun Belt Conference Freshman Player of the Week honors for the third time in the 2017 season after the league chose her as the recipient for matches played Oct. 30-Nov. 5.
Wisnoskie, the first Ragin’ Cajun to win SBC Freshman of the Week since the award was instituted in 2013, previously received the honor in consecutive weeks in September (Sept. 11, Sept. 18).
The Ragin’ Cajuns rookie now leads all Sun Belt freshmen in number of times being honored as freshman of the week, breaking a tie with Appalachian State’s Kara Spicer and Arkansas State’s Timber Terrell.
Wisnoskie hit .281 and averaged 3.67 kills per set in the Ragin’ Cajuns sweep of the South Alabama-Troy trip last week.
She reached double digits in kills for the fourth straight match and equaled her Sun Belt-play high total with 17 kills on a .317 hitting percentage in the win at South Alabama. She was a consistent offensive threat against the Jaguars, tallying at least four kills in each set.
Wisnoskie helped the Ragin’ Cajuns grab the early lead on Saturday at Troy, posting five kills on just 11 swings in the first-set victory.
Her performance at South Alabama marked the 11th time this season she’s hit .250 or higher in a double-digit kills outing. Her weekend kills total upped her season total to 285 which is the second-most recorded by a Ragin’ Cajun freshman in the rally scoring era and has her on pace to become only the second to reach 300 (last occurred in 2007) in the era.
The Ragin’ Cajuns (19-9, 12-2 Sun Belt) close out the regular season this weekend in Texas with Sun Belt rematches against Texas State and UTA. Louisiana will be in San Marcos on Friday for a 5:30 p.m. match with the Bobcats, then in Arlington on Sunday to face the Mavericks in a 1 p.m. matinee.
The following week the squad travels to Jonesboro, Ark., for the Sun Belt Conference Tournament at First National Bank Arena on the Arkansas State campus. The Ragin’ Cajuns seeding for the event will be determined following the conclusion of this weekend’s action.
