Cheyenne Huskey has been recognized for her volleyball performance.

The Columbus High School graduate was named Sept. 30 as the Sun Belt Conference offensive player of the week.

The Texas State University senior outside hitter and setter was cited for her play in three matches, the latter two against conference opponents.

In the team’s first conference match, she had a season-high 21 kills in a win over University of Louisiana at Lafayette, for which former Cardinal Hali Wisnoskie plays. Huskey led players from both teams in kills and added 11 digs.

Huskey led Texas State with 14 kills during a win over Louisiana Monroe and had eight digs. She had five kills and four digs in a loss to then-unbeaten Baylor in the first match of the Sept. 23 week.

As of Thursday, she ranked fifth in the conference in service aces per set and sixth in kills per set.
