Jenna Hagglund, a sophomore setter for then-No. 10 University of Washington, has been named the Sports Imports/AVCA Division I National Player of the Week. Hagglund notched her second and third double-doubles of the season last week, propelling the Huskies to consecutive five-set road victories over Pac-10 foes - then-No. 8 UCLA and then-No. 11 Southern California. Against the Bruins, she dished out 56 assists in leading the Washington attackers to a .271 hitting percentage, while also scooping up 25 digs. In addition, she chipped in two kills and two block-assists. Hagglund followed that performance with a 57-assist effort against the Women of Troy, in which she also tallied a kill, an ace, 11 digs and one assisted block. With that victory, the sophomore also helped the Huskies snap USC's 32-match home winning streak. For the week, Hagglund averaged 11.30 assists and 3.6 digs per set, while guiding the Huskies to a .252 team attack percentage. This is the fifth time an athlete from Washington has earned the Sports Imports/AVCA Division I National Player of the Week award. The last Husky to win the award was Sanja Tomasevic on Oct. 10, 2005. Washington is coached by Jim McLaughlin.
