Emily Foster, a 5-7 senior outside hitter for 15th-ranked Washburn University (18-2, 6-2 MIAA), has been named the Sports Imports/AVCA Division II National Player of the Week. Foster averaged 7.75 points, 6.33 kills, 4.17 digs, 1.00 blocks and 0.83 service aces per game as the Lady Blues split a pair of matches last week. She hit .500 with a career-high 24 kills and 12 digs in a loss to ninth-ranked Central Missouri State on Sept. 28. Foster followed that performance with 14 kills, 13 digs, five blocks and four aces in a victory over Emporia State on Oct. 1. She hit .432 for the week on 74 swings with just six attack errors. Washburn has used a back-up setter for the last five matches, including both contests last week. Foster is the first Lady Blue to win the national award in school history. The Washburn head coach is Chris Herron.
