Alumni volleyball players named freshmen of week

By Robbie Loeb

Last week, University of California Berkeley volleyball player Christina Higgins ’11 and Boston College volleyball player Kellie Barnum ’11 were honored by the Pac-12 and the Atlantic Coast Conference. They were named their respective divisions’ freshmen of the week.

As a Golden Bear, Higgins has become a legitimate offensive weapon at the net, having racked up 90 kills on the season so far.

Barnum has racked up 318 assists and only 11 errors this season as the Eagles’ primary setter. She has played in 48 of 68 games, averaging about six assists per game.
