CORPUS CHRISTI – Shannon Hullum has been named the GoIslanders.com Student-Athlete of the Week, presented by Pepsi. Hullum earned the award for her performance last week in the Islanders' two home victories.
Hullum led the Islanders to a pair of wins last week, running their winning streak to four in a row after big wins over Northwestern State and Stephen F. Austin. The Islanders got 13 kills and seven block assists from Hullum on the way to a 3-1 win on Thursday against the Lady Demons to avenge the first Southland Conference loss this season.
On Saturday, Hullum had another double-digit kill match, picking up 11 against SFA to go along with one ace and two block assists. Hullum led the team with 24 total kills in the two matches as the Islanders surpassed their 2011 Southland Conference win total after just eight matches this season.
Hullum and the rest of the volleyball team will next be in action against Lamar on Oct. 11 in Beaumont and against McNeese State on Oct. 12 in Lake Charles, La. Those two are the first of five straight Southland Conference road matches on the road.
