Madison Ward (Oklahoma), Caitlin Nolan (Iowa State) and Kylee Zumach (K-State) have earned Big 12 volleyball weekly awards for matches played Sept. 29-Oct. 5.

It marks the first career Big 12 weekly honor for Ward and the second for Nolan. This is the fourth time that Zumach has been named Rooke of the Week.

Offensive Player of the Week
Madison Ward, Oklahoma, So., OH, Lawton, Okla./Cache
Ward matched her career-high in kills for the fourth time this season by providing a match-high 18 in a sweep of TCU on Wednesday. She posted 6.00 per set and hit .471, while committing just two errors on 34 attempts. Ward also notched her team-leading fifth double-double of the season in an 11-dig effort; averaging 3.67.

Defensive Player of the Week
Caitlin Nolan, Iowa State, Jr., L, Southlake, Texas/Southlake Carroll
Nolan contributed two outstanding defensive performances on the week. In Iowa State’s loss at No. 2 Texas on Wednesday, the junior led all players with 19 digs. Coming back to Hilton Coliseum to take on West Virginia, Nolan was brilliant again for the Cyclones, finishing with a match-high 25 digs. It was her fourth 20-dig match of the season, along with three matches with 19 digs. For the week, Nolan finished with 44 digs at a Big 12-best 6.29 digs per set.

Rookie of the Week
Kylee Zumach, Kansas State, Fr., OH, Buffalo, Minn./Buffalo
The freshman outside hitter led all Big 12 freshmen in kills (33) and kills per set (4.12) to help K-State pick up a pair of road wins over Kansas and Texas Tech. Zumach, who was fourth overall among all conference players last week in kills per set, had a team-best 18 kills in the Wildcats’ five-set win in Lawrence and 15 kills on a .300 hitting percentage in a sweep of Texas Tech. She also added four blocks to help her rank fourth among all Big 12 players in points per set with 4.38.
