HUNTINGTON, Ind. – Huntington University senior Kate Cobb reached a significant milestone in her HU career this past week by becoming just the second Forester in program history to tally over 2,000 career digs.
“From her first day on campus, Kate has run on her own motor,” said Coach Shondell. “Her attitude, effort and love for this game make her one of the most special players I have ever coached.”
The 5-5 defensive specialist has 2,059 digs to date. The Elkhart native officially went over the 2K mark against Friends University last Saturday. She currently sits second in the Huntington record books for digs in a career behind 2008 graduate Stephanie Stearns.
So far this season Cobb has accumulated 266 digs to rank 11th in the NAIA in total digs. She averages 5.12 digs per set which lands her 34th in the NAIA and 3rd in the Crossroads League. Cobb has earned three All-Conference badges during her time in green and white which includes being named First Team the last two years.
“For four years she has been arguably the best libero in our conference, because she’s worked for it,” said Shondell. “Her ‘no days off’ mentality has helped build the culture we have here at HU and means she more than deserves this milestone.”
The Huntington University Foresters compete in 17 intercollegiate sports for men and women. In the past decade, Huntington has produced 38 NAIA All-America honors and 274 All-America Scholar Athlete honors. Huntington University is a comprehensive Christian college of the liberal arts offering graduate and undergraduate programs in more than 70 academic concentrations. U.S. News & World Report ranks Huntington among the best colleges in the Midwest.
