SACRAMENTO -- Sacramento State setter Ashtin Olin was named the Big Sky Conference Volleyball Offensive Player of the week after helping lead the Hornets to a sweep on the road, which included five-set wins over both Idaho State and Weber State.
The sweep allowed the Hornets to improve their winning streak to three straight and move into a tie for second place in the conference standings with a 4-2 record. It also marks the second consecutive week a Sacramento State player has earned the honor as outside hitter Sarah Davis was the recipient last Monday.
Olin, a sophomore, had 60-plus assists in both victories and finished the week with averages of 12.30 assists, 2.20 digs and 0.50 blocks per set. She racked up 123 assists over the two wins, and also tacked on two aces, two kills, 22 digs, and five blocks.
In the Hornets' win at Idaho State, the Pasco, Wash., native had 63 assists, 16 digs and two blocks. The double-double was her fourth straight, and 10th of the season. During the fifth set, she posted seven assists and had a block.
She returned two days later at Weber State to notch 60 assists, two aces, six digs and three blocks. That included a crafty dump for a kill on match point to give the Hornets a 15-11 win in the fifth set. During that fifth frame, she posted a kill, nine assists and a pair of digs.
Olin is now on a run that has seen her register over 50 assists in five consecutive matches. Her 11.66 assists per set in league play rank as the second best mark in the Big Sky.
Sacramento State (9-10, 4-2) begins a three-match homestand tomorrow against Portland State at 7 p.m. The Hornets will also host conference leader Northern Colorado on Thursday at 7 p.m.
