CEDAR CITY, Utah - Southern Utah University's Alissa Youart has been named the Big Sky Conference Co-Player of the Week after leading the Thunderbirds to a pair of victories last weekend. She shared the award with North Dakota's Lisa Parlich.

Youart, a junior from Waimanalo, Hawaii, averaged a double-double performance over the weekend to lead the Thunderbirds to their first conference weekend sweep of the season. Youart recorded 13 kills and 15 digs against Montana State as the T-Birds captured a four-set victory in Bozeman. Youart started at outside hitter for the first time since the opening weekend of the season, having played at the libero position for most of the year. She returned to her outside hitter position at Montana, recording 12 kills and nine digs and added two solo blocks as the Thunderbirds came away with the five-set victory and kept their tournament hopes alive.

Southern Utah will be back in action this weekend, hosting Northern Colorado and North Dakota on Thursday and Saturday night at 7:00 p.m.
