In one week sophomore setter Kate Hampson set three of the school’s top 12 single-match assist records (since match records were kept in 1999). She broke her own career record and came within one of the school’s single-match record as WU went 3-0. For her efforts she was named the MIAA specialist of the week.
Last Tuesday against Rockhurst she had 66 assists, the sixth highest total at WU, and then Friday against Pittsburg State she had a career-high 73. That total is one off the school’s record of 74, set in 1999.
She followed that with 62 assists on Saturday at Missouri Southern, tied for the 12th highest total. Hampson averaged15.46 assists per game during the week after totaling 201 to move into third in her career at Washburn.
For the week she also had 2.69 digs a game, five service aces, 10 kills and five blocks.
Hampson was named the MIAA's top specialist two other times this year
