IRVING, TEXAS — No. 1 Baylor volleyball’s Yossiana Pressley earned Big 12 Offensive Player of the Week recognition, announced by the conference office Monday afternoon.

Pressley earns her program-leading 13th weekly honor and ninth offensive award.

The Cypress, Texas native led the Big 12 with 5.67 kills per set while she put away 17 kills in the team’s conference opener at Kansas last Saturday. She recorded a .483 attack efficiency after only committing three attack errors on 29 attempts against the Jayhawks.

Her efforts helped BU lead the Big 12 in hitting percentage during the first week of conference play.

Her honor gives Baylor six Big 12 awards so far this season. BU had eight weekly selections last season while the 2017 squad holds the single-season program record with 15 honors.

Baylor will host Oklahoma for its Big 12 home opener on Wednesday at 7 p.m. at the Ferrell Center.
