Two Texas Tech volleyball players have received conference honors.

Tech sophomore Rachel Brummitt earned the Big 12 Defensive Player of the Week designation, and freshman Emily Ruetter has been named as the conference Rookie of the Week.

This is the first time in school history that two Tech volleyball players have been honored in the same week, and only the third time that multiple athletes have been recognized with a weekly award in the same season.

Brummitt took the Big 12 Defensive Player of the Week award this week, keeping it from the week before. She becomes the first Tech player to receive the award in consecutive weeks.

The Red Raiders have picked up six weekly award selections in just over a season under head coach Don Flora.

The group will start a seven-match road trip this weekend, playing in the Best Western Grant Creek Inn Invitational in Missoula, Montana.
