Washington State senior Magda Jehlarova was named Pac-12 Defensive Player of the Week on Monday. The Pac-12 conference announced that the middle blocker from the Czech Republic was named winner of the award following a sweep of the Arizona schools over the weekend.
Jehlarova finished her weekend with 1.5 blocks per set, 1.88 kills per set, and averaged 3.1 points over the weekend. This is her second time winning this award this season as she also earned it on October 3rd after a victory over California and a loss against #9 Stanford. This is her tenth time over her career that she has won a conference award and the 8th time she has won Defensive Player of the Week.
The Cougs started off with a 3-2 victory over the Wildcats where Jehlarova had eight total blocks, three solo, and eight kills. Her three solo blocks helped move her into third all-time in Washington State history with 99 solo blocks over her career.
On Sunday in a 3-0 victory over the Sun Devils, she finished with four total blocks and 7 kills. She also helped hold the Sun Devils to .185 hitting for the match.
