WWU’s Kayla Erickson named Offensive P-O-W

Western Washington University volleyball middle blocker Kayla Erickson has been named the Great Northwest Athletic Conference Offensive Player of the Week. Erickson, a junior from Gig Harbor, led the way with 50 kills and 15 blocks as the Vikings swept all four of their matches at the Western Oregon Invitational. It’s the first time in GNAC history that a team has started a season with four consecutive 3-0 victories against Division II competition.

Western, ranked #12 in the country, next plays at the Sonoma State Seawolf Spike Tournament on Friday and Saturday.
