Foss helps Rams clinch Mountain West Title


Nov. 25 - Deedra Foss, a redshirt senior setter for No. 9 Colorado State University, has been named the Sports Imports/AVCA Division I National Player of the Week. It was a big week for the Rams, clinching a share of the Mountain West Conference Title on Wednesday before winning it outright this past weekend, and Foss was at the center of both of those victories. At home against San Jose State, she notched 35 assists, four digs and three blocks while leading her team to a .300 team hitting percentage in the sweep. On Saturday they hit the road to Nevada where they would go on to clinch the regular season title with another sweep, this time against the University of Nevada. She upped her assist total (45), digs (5), blocks (4 - tied for team-high) and team hitting percentage (.350). For the week she averaged 13.33 assists, 1.50 digs and 1.17 blocks per set while also contributing six kills without making an error.


This is the seventh time a Colorado State student-athlete has garnered Sports Imports/AVCA Player of the Week honors, with the previous coming from Megan Plourde on September 11, 2012. The Rams are coached by Tom Hilbert.
