Hahn earns her sixth Defensive Player of the Week distinction this season after claiming the award four weeks in a row from Sept. 17-Oct. 8 and also garnering the honor last week. She totaled four distinctions in 2011 and has the second-most defensive recognitions in league history with 10, trailing only former ISU libero Ashley Mass (15). Her six awards this season match the most by one player for the defensive category in a single year. The feat has been achieved twice and was last done in 2010.
This marks the first career honor for Webster and McCage.

Bailey Webster, Texas, OH, Jr., Baltimore, Md.
Webster had 28 kills (4.67) while hitting .448 with five digs (0.83), six blocks (1.00) and 32.5 points (5.42) in two 3-0 Texas sweeps last week, including at TCU and at home against No. 16 Kansas State.
