Kansas Jayhawks star Caroline Jarmoc claimed the American Volleyball Coaches Association National Player of the Week honor for her career-high performances last week. Jarmoc is the third player in Kansas history to earn the title.

Against No. 14 Kansas State, the junior recorded her first career double-double with 11 kills and a career-high 12 blocks to lead Kansas past the Wildcats, 3-1. Jarmoc set another benchmark in a 3-1 win over TCU, posting a career-high 23 kills with four blocks.

Jarmoc's performance also garnered her Big 12 Defensive Player of the Week and she now leads the league in attack percentage at .396 and ranks fourth in blocks per set with 1.34.

The Jayhawks have won eight of their last nine contests and boast a 19-3 record, including 7-1 in the conference. However, Kansas has three of its next four games on the road, where it has dropped all three of its losses.
