The collegiate volleyball awards season just wrapped up with the announcement that UW’s Krista Vansant won the Honda Sports Award. She earlier was named the AVCA Player of the Year. These awards, along with her first team all American honors, means that Vansant was the consensus best player in women’s college volleyball this year. In women’s sports winning awards like this as a junior is much less common as female athletes don’t leave college early for professional riches. Seniors dominate these awards, as I am sure she is hoping to do next year. Congratulations Krista!
