Igodan claims her second Offensive Player of the Week award for 2012, while Doyle captures her third Rookie of the Week honor.
Hahn earns her seventh Defensive Player of the Week distinction this season. She claimed the award four weeks in a row from Sept. 17-Oct. 8 and has won the honor the past three weeks. She totaled four distinctions in 2011 and has the second-most defensive recognitions in league history with 11, trailing only former ISU libero Ashley Mass (15). Her seven honors this season are the most by one player for the defensive category in a single year. She has also tied for the most single-season honors in league history, matching Texas' Haley Eckerman who combined for seven in 2011.

Yvonne Igodan, TCU, MB, Jr., Houston, Texas
Igodan posted the league's highest hitting percentage of the season in three sets for an overall match with a .722 mark against Kansas State on Saturday.
