Her top Pac-10 hitting stats came at then-No. 22 Arizona in early October when she had five kills on eight attempts and hit .625. Also had two kills in wins vs. then-No. 7 UCLA in mid-November and vs. Seattle and at Portland in early September. The first month of the season, she claimed blocks in five straight matches, including multiple ones in four of those contests.
