Kayla Jeter, a junior outside hitter for then-No. 23 University of Tennessee, has been named the Sports Imports/AVCA Division I National Player of the Week after keying the Lady Vols to a pair of Southeastern Conference sweeps last week. In her first week of action playing all six rotations, Jeter notched her first career double-double in Tennessee's blanking of Kentucky, a team who is receiving votes in AVCA Division I Coaches Top 25 Poll. She totaled 13 kills on .303 hitting, while grabbing 13 digs and two blocks in the nationally-televised win. Jeter followed by narrowly missing a second double-double, this time contributing 16 kills (.353), nine digs and two blocks in the Lady Vols' whitewashing of Ole Miss. For the week, Jeter averaged 4.83 kills, 3.67 digs and 5.17 points per set, while hitting at a .328 clip. This marks only the third time a Tennessee athlete has been honored as the Sports Imports/AVCA Division I National Player of the Week, the last being Kristen Andre on Sept. 7, 2004. The Lady Vols are coached by Rob Patrick
