A 6-4 middle blocker from Missoula, Mont., Keddy notched a pair of career-highs in leading the Mustangs to two Big West Conference victories last week.

In the week's first match, the middle tied her career best in kills, drilling 20 on .413 hitting while at the same time scooping up a career-high dig total with 17 as Cal Poly downed UC Santa Barbara 3-2. Keddy also tabbed five blocks on the night.

The next night, against CS Northridge, Keddy again was hot on the attack, this time setting a career-high with 22 kills, hitting .422 and adding 12 more digs to her total as Cal Poly won in four.

On the week, Keddy averaged 4.78 kills and 3.22 digs per set while hitting .418. She also added seven total blocks.

For her efforts, Keddy also earned Big West Conference Player of the Week honors. The middle is the first Mustang to earn the CVU.com honor and fifth player from the Big West.
