WALNUT CREEK, Calif. - UC San Diego junior outside hitter Roxanne Brunsting was named the Molten/California Collegiate Athletic Association Women's Volleyball Player of the Week for the week ending September 5, it was announced Monday by the league office.

Brunsting averaged 3.27 kills, 3.27 digs, 0.67 blocks, 0.47 assists and 0.47 service aces in 15 sets over the weekend, leading the eighth-ranked Tritons to a 3-1 mark at the Phoenix Inn GNAC Conference Challenge hosted by Western Oregon. She totaled three double-doubles (kills and digs) and finished with double digit kill totals in all four contests.

Brunsting tallied a team-high 49 kills on .233 hitting for the week and finished with a personal best 15 kills and 19 digs in UCSD's four-set loss to Western Washington on Saturday.  

The Chula Vista, Calif., native had an impressive start to the season after moving to outside hitter for the first time in her career. She earned American Volleyball Coaches Association (AVCA) All-American honors as a libero last season.

This marks Brunsting's second career player of the week award.

Brunsting and the Tritons return to the court this weekend when they host Humboldt State Friday in their CCAA opener. First serve is set for 7:00 p.m.
