Lauren Budde, a senior middle hitter for then - No. 2 Washington - St. Louis, has been named the Sports Imports/AVCA Division III National Player of the Week after they went a perfect 3-0 last week without dropping a set.  Her best match of the week came on Saturday against Carnegie Mellon when she had 15 kills, hit .522 and tallied 17 digs.  After wins over Brandeis and NYU, Budde finished the week with 47 kills and 41 blocks while hitting .368.  After Sunday's win, she became just the 8th player in program history to reach 1,000 kills and 1,000 digs.   This is the 24th time an athlete from Washington-St. Louis has earned the Sports Imports/AVCA Division III National Player of the Week award, and Budde's second since she won it the week of October 13, 2009.   The Bears are coached by Rich Luenemann.
