Freshman setter Katie Gallagher was named Big Ten Freshman of the Week. This is the first time in three years a Hoosier volleyball player has won the award.
In 2010, the IU women's volleyball team had its best season in history, making it to the Sweet 16, but in 2011, the Hoosiers dealt with several setbacks. Now, in 2012, the team hopes to turn its fortunes around.

This weekend will kick off a four-game home stand for the Hoosiers as they return to University Gym against Northwestern and Illinois on Friday and Saturday, respectively.
