Karina Garlington, a sophomore outside hitter for the University of Kansas, has been named the Sports Imports/AVCA Division I National Player of the Week. She earned the award after leading her team to two sweeps last week over Big 12 Conference opponents. In the Jayhawks' first match, Garlington hit .372 with a team-high 20 kills in 43 attempts in a 3-0 win over Colorado. She also had seven digs, two aces and one block in the match. Against Texas Tech, she hit .318 with 10 kills in 22 attempts, while also totaling three digs, one ace and two blocks in the 3-0 win. In addition, the match marked the sixth consecutive outing in which she has scored at least one ace. For the week, Garlington hit .354, while averaging 5.0 kills, 1.67 digs and 5.75 points per set. Garlington is the second athlete from Kansas to be named Sports Imports/AVCA Division I National Player of the Week. The last Jayhawk to receive the honor was Josi Kimi on Sept. 19, 2005. Kansas is coached by Ray Bechard.
