College of the Canyons sophomore Brianna Botello (women’s volleyball) has been named the COC Athletic Department's Women's Student-Athlete of the Week for the period running Sept. 19-24.

Botello turned in a pair of strong performances to eventually help Canyons snap a three-match skid and get back in the win column.

The sophomore started the week by tallying eight kills and two digs in COC’s 3-0 (27-25, 25-15, 25-22) road loss at Moorpark College on Sept. 21. However, Botello’s brightest moment came two nights later in a dominating performance vs. L.A. Pierce College in which she finished with a game-high 11 kills on 15 attacks, good for a .667 hitting average. The Cleveland Charter High School graduate also served up a pair of aces to go with three digs in her two sets of action, helping Canyons get a convincing 3-0 (25-11, 25-14, 25-21) victory.

The Cougars began the week as the No. 20 ranked team in the state and will begin Western State Conference (WSC) competition at Citrus College on Wednesday, Sept. 28.
