Tech’s Douglass earns all-region
Texas Tech volleyball senior Lauren Douglass was named an American Volleyball Coaches Association (AVCA) All-Southwest Region Honorable Mention, the AVCA announced on Tuesday.
This is the latest in a long line of awards for Douglass, who already received All-Big 12 honors for the third consecutive year following her senior campaign.
Douglass was also an AVCA All-Region performer in 2015 after setting the school record in single-season hitting percentage at .377.
She is only the third Red Raider in history to earn back-to-back AVCA All-Region honors, joining Lisa Higlers (1997-98) and Rachel Brummitt (2013-14).
Douglass compiled a career-best 343 kills this season while hitting at a .340 clip, good for fifth in the conference.
She added 114 total blocks, averaging 1.02 for set which was also a top-10 mark in the Big 12.
Douglass posted 19 double-digit kill performances this season and hit .440 or better in 10 matches, including a .773 clip against Portland State that ranks sixth all-time in a single match in Texas Tech history and was the top mark in Big 12 play during the regular season.
Transferring to Texas Tech after her freshman season, Douglass wrapped up her three-year career in the scarlet and black with 895 kills and a .343 hitting percentage, finishing with the second-highest career hitting percentage in school history.
She also totaled 250 career block assists while at Texas Tech, eighth most in school history.
