Webster Volleyball Wins NCAA Division III Team Statistics National Titles, Farrah Named Statistical Champion

Webster University concluded the 2018 volleyball season as the NCAA Division III team statistical national champion in both digs per set and team attacks per set, the NCAA Media Coordination and Statistics staff confirmed earlier this week.
 
The Gorloks not only led all of NCAA Division III in digs per set, but Webster led all NCAA volleyball squads (DI, DII, DIII) in the digs per set category. Additionally, Webster was second among all NCAA volleyball squads in the team attacks pet set category.
 
This marks the first-ever national team statistical championships for Webster's volleyball program and the first time one of Webster's teams has won a national statistical championship since the baseball team earned the strikeouts per nine innings honor in 2017.

In addition to the team accolades, the National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) announced that Webster University sophomore libero Kristen Farrah (St. Charles, Mo./Francis Howell) claimed an NCAA Division III national statistical champion in digs per set during the 2018 volleyball season.

Farrah becomes the first-ever Webster Volleyball player to earn a national statistical championship plaque and she is the first Gorlok student-athlete to win an NCAA Division III national statistical title since baseball players Josh Fleming and Kyle Uhrich earned the lowest ERA and strikeouts per nine innings national statistical titles in 2017.
