Hagglund and Shaw Named USC Student-Athletes of the Week|
Nov. 4, 2013
USC Women's Student-Athlete of the Week: Senior libero Natalie Hagglund became the program's all-time career leader in digs over the weekend as she logged a pair of 36-dig matches. The marks tied for eighth in single-match performances in USC history, and were the second time in her career that she posted back-to-back 30-dig matches. She has tallied nine career matches with 30 digs or more. Hagglund averaged 8.00 digs per set in two big road wins over Stanford and Cal and moved into fifth all-time in Pac-12 history in career digs (2,131). Against Stanford, 16 of Hagglund's digs led straight to kills (.444) and while she was rarely served to, three of her seven passes led to kills (.429). Against the Bears, 12 of Hagglund's touches produced kills for the Trojans.
USC Men's Student-Athlete of the Week: USC junior cornerback Josh Shaw recorded a team-best eight tackles and had an endzone interception as the Trojans beat Oregon State, 31-14, last Friday (Nov. 1) night to snap a 3-game losing streak in Corvallis. Shaw helped USC limit an Oregon State offense that was averaging 40.1 points per game, 487.4 totals yards and leading the nation in passing offense to 14 points and 277 passing yards. Shaw led a Trojan defense that forced three interceptions and held the Beavers to 2-of-11 on third down. For his efforts, Shaw was named Pac-12 Defensive Player of the Week.
