Written By: NM State Athletic Dept.

DENVER, CO - New Mexico State volleyball's Megan Hart was named the Western Athletic Conference Defensive Player of the Week, the league announced on Monday. This is the redshirt junior's first ever WAC weekly honor.

Hart had an outstanding week defensively for the Aggies, both at the net and in the back row. She led the league with 1.86 blocks per set while also averaging 1.86 digs per set when NM State went 2-0 on the week to extend its home winning streak to 20 matches. The middle blocker posted her first career double-double when she recorded 12 kills and 11 digs in a four-set victory against Utah Valley, adding a team-high six blocks in the match. She closed out the weekend with a match-high seven blocks in a sweep of CSU Bakersfield. Hart currently ranks fifth in the WAC with 1.05 blocks per set.
