SANTA BARBARA, Calif.— The Big West Conference announced its weekly awards Monday afternoon naming UCSB Women's Volleyball's Michelle Ohwobete both the Offensive Player of the Week and the Freshman Player of the week. Ohwobete has now earned the offensive honor twice and the freshman honor four times.

Ohwobete helped lead UC Santa Barbara to a pair of sweeps over the weekend posting back-to-back 16-kill matches for a 5.33 kill per set average on a combined .406 hitting clip. The freshman outside hitter led all players with 16 kills on a .314 clip and added a career-high four aces, four digs, and three blocks to her stat line in a three-setter against UC Davis. Against UC Riverside she led all players again, this time posting 16 kills on a potent 16-1-29 (.517) line to go with two aces and five digs. She also did a bulk of the passing work in both matches committing just three errors on the weekend.
