HOUSTON (BP)--HBU swept the Red River Athletic Conference honors for the week ending October 14. Rachel Dinkins was named the Player of the Week, while Amy Boiteaux was named the Setter of the Week. It was the third award for Dinkins, while Boiteaux was named for the second time this season.

Dinkins, a junior and a returning NAIA All-America from Sugar Land, led the Huskies to a 4-1 week by averaging 3.38 kills and 4.25 digs per game. Dinkins, who was the RRAC Player of the Year as a sophomore last season, now has 658 kills in just over a season and a half as a Husky, and needs just 38 kills to pass Head Coach Kaddie Platt for sixth place all-time. She has also moved into 12h place on the all-time digs leader board with 702. Dinkins is averaging 3.49 kills and 4.29 digs per game this season.

Boiteaux, a junior from Sugar Land and the 1998 Red River Setter of the Year, averaged 10.25 assists and 2.60 digs per game. Boiteaux, second in all-time assists, passed the 3,000 mark with her 32-assist effort against Newman in the Husky Classic, and now trails all-time leader Holly Moore (4,318 from 1994-97) by just 1,294.

In other notes, Dinkins, senior middle blocker Nathana Janca and junior outside hitter Jaime Brown were named to the Husky Classic All-Tournament team. On the statistical side, senior middle blocker Janice Lee passed Kara Williams (1996-98) for second place all-time in kills with 847 for her career.

HBU, now 21-7 on the season, has now won 13 of its last 15 matches. The win over Huston-Tillotson on Saturday afternoon pushed the Huskies to the 20-win plateau, the fifth time in six seasons under Head Coach Kaddie Platt that HBU has won over 20 matches.

Houston Baptist University returns to action on Tuesday evening, when it travels to Austin to take on former NAIA and Heart of Texas power St. Edward's University. The Huskies defeated the Hilltoppers, now a member of NCAA Division II and the Heartland Conference, on September 15, the first victory ever for the Huskies in the series. The Huskies have now won 13 of their last 15 matches.
