Nebraska sophomore middle blocker Lauren Stivrins was named the Big Ten Defensive Player of the Week on Monday. It marks the first defensive weekly honor for the Scottsdale, Arizona native, but the second career individual honor as she was named the Big Ten Player of the Week in October.
Stivrins had a career-high 10 blocks in a five-set win over No. 7 Penn State on Friday and followed with eight blocks in a sweep of Rutgers on Saturday. She averaged 2.25 blocks per set to go with 2.25 kills per set on a .516 hitting percentage. Stivrins helped the Huskers hold Penn State to a season-low .114 hitting percentage and Rutgers to .024.
The Huskers have now collected six Big Ten weekly awards this season. Nebraska plays at Iowa on Wednesday at 7 p.m.
Nebraska middle blocker Lauren Stivrins was honored as the Big Ten Co-Player of the Week on Monday after leading the Huskers to a pair of road victories over the weekend.
Stivrins picked up her first-career Big Ten weekly honor after becoming the third Husker in school history to post a 1.000 hitting percentage with at least 10 kills when she went 10-for-10 in a sweep of Northwestern last Friday. She followed the next night with eight kills, four blocks and three service aces in a 3-1 win at previously unbeaten No. 7 Illinois. The sophomore from Scottsdale, Arizona averaged 2.57 kills per set on .536 hitting for the weekend.
The Huskers have now picked up a Big Ten weekly honor in four consecutive weeks, and Stivrins is the third player-of-the-week honoree in the last four weeks, as outside hitter Mikaela Foecke earned the distinction twice.
Nebraska hosts Iowa on Wednesday at 6 p.m. at the Bob Devaney Sports Center. The match will be televised on BTN, streamed at BTN2GO.com and can be heard on Husker Sports Network radio affiliates, Huskers.com and the official Huskers app.

Lincoln – Sophomore tight end Jack Stoll received recognition Friday, as he was chosen to the 2018 John Mackey Award Preseason Watch List. The Mackey Award is presented to the most outstanding collegiate tight end. Stoll, the Huskers’ lone returning letterwinner at tight end, is in position to flourish in the Huskers’ new offense in 2018. The 6-foot-4, 245-pounder from Lone Tree, Colo., played in 12 games as a redshirt freshman, catching eight passes for 89 yards and a pair of scores, as he split time with senior Tyler Hoppes. In all, the pair combined for 42 catches and 466 yards and five touchdowns last season. Stoll had all eight of his receptions in the final six games, including season bests of three catches and 41 yards against Northwestern, and scored TDs against the Wildcats and Penn State. The tight end spot has flourished in the Huskers’ new offensive attack and position coach Sean Beckton. Last season, Jordan Akins grabbed 32 receptions for 515 yards and four touchdowns en route to first-team All-AAC honors. The 2018 Mackey Award recipient will be announced on December 5, 2018 and then presented live on December 6, 2018 at The Home Depot College Football Awards Red Carpet Show on ESPNU.
