Kaimi Rocha
Whitworth, Senior
Pukalani, Hawaii/Seabury Hall
Outside Hitter
Rocha led Whitworth to a sweep of nationally-ranked Puget Sound and Pacific Lutheran by averaging 4.6 kills per set with a .256 hitting percentage. She added 3.7 digs per set and 0.6 blocks per set. Her play has a great deal to due with the reason Whitworth has a two-game lead in the standings as we approach the halfway point in the NWC season.
