Hodson is Pac-12 Freshman of the Week in volleyball

 

Stanford opposite Hayley Hodson has been tabbed the first Pac-12 Freshman of the Week of the 2015 season, as announced by Commissioner Larry Scott.

Hodson helped lead the Cardinal to sweeps over Texas A&M and Minnesota at Maples Pavilion last week. The Newport Beach native averaged 3.17 kills, 4.08 points and a team-best 3.83 digs per set in the two matches.

Against the Aggies, Hodson notched a double-double with 10 kills and 11 digs in her collegiate debut. Versus Minnesota, she was one kill shy of another double-double, finishing with nine kills, 12 digs and five blocks.

It marks the first weekly honor for Hodson and the 10th freshman of the week accolade for the Cardinal all-time.

Nationally No. 2 Stanford (2-0) travels to University Park, Pa., this week to play in the Big Ten/Pac-12 Challenge. The Cardinal will face No. 6 Illinois on Friday before taking on host and top-ranked Penn State on Saturday.
