Just call her the iron horse of volleyball. This season, the Aggies’ senior outside hitter, Allison Whitson, cemented herself as one of the all-time great players to come through this UC Davis volleyball program.
Among other things, Whitson earned the honor of being called “The Iron Horse” due to the fact that she never missed a single match throughout all her four years as an Aggie.
As if enduring the intense physical demands that four years of Div. I volleyball can put on the body wasn’t enough, Whitson was also able to put together some of the best stats the school has ever seen.
In four years, she galloped her way to second all-time in kills with 1,620, three All-Big West Conference First Team selections, one honorable mention and three Big West Player of the Week awards, including two in this past season alone.
As the centerpiece of the Aggies’ offense, Whitson led the team to an 11-7 Big West record, including a 7-2 run to finish out the season. With Whitson as their main offensive component, UC Davis achieved the program’s best conference record in years.
