Biassou Named to All-Mountain West Team
ALBUQUERQUE, N.M.— Following a successful sophomore season, outside hitter Kaitlynn Biassou has been recognized among one of the best in the Mountain West, earning her first all-conference honor as a member of the All-Mountain West team.
It is the 14th consecutive year that a Lobo has made the all-conference team.
Biassou finished the conference-only season sixth in kills per set and fifth in points per set at 3.34 and 4.00, respectively. The Lobo totaled 137 kills and 214.5 points, her second season surpassing 100-plus kills and points while playing half as many sets in the shortened 2020-21 volleyball season than in her freshman season.
The Sparks, Nev., native finished with 10-plus kills in 10 of the 14 matches, finishing with 20-plus kills in two matches, including a career-high 25 kills in the season finale against Utah State. In addition, Biassou tallied a team-high five double-doubles.
Playing all 53 sets and starting all 14 matches, Biassou had her best all-around season as a Lobo with 124 digs, more than double what she recorded as a freshman, and posted a team-best 17 service aces to go along with leading the Lobos in attack percentage, kills and points. She was second in total blocks with 24 (five solo) and digs as well.
Twice this season, Biassou recorded a career-high four aces and two solo blocks against San José State and career-high 17 digs at Nevada to open the season.
