Magda Jehlárová named Pac-12 Defensive Player of the Week

10th honor of WSU career

For the first time in the 2023 season and the 10th time in her career at WSU, the Pac-12 named the Cougs’ middle blocker Magda Jehlárova the Defensive Player of the Week. 

Off the back of two huge road wins over then-No. 18 Baylor and No. 6 Texas, Jehlárová got the honor. Against Baylor, she had eight total blocks and two digs. Without missing a step, against the defending champs in the Longhorns, she had nine blocks and two digs. 

Up to averaging 1.4 blocks per set, Jehlárová ranks the 21st best in the NCAA and the best in the Pac-12. Earlier this year, she broke the record for most blocks in program history, and if she continues her pace, she will make the new mark unachievable by anyone anytime soon.

She is up to 49.0 total blocks on the season, with eight solo blocks recorded thus far. While her blocks per set numbers have slightly dipped from her 1.48 mark last season, she has stayed consistently one of the best defensive players in the Conference and the past week was her best of the young season.  

The Defensive Player of the Week honor is the seventh of her career and the 10th overall Pac-12 weekly accolade, according to WSU Athletics

Jehlárová and the Cougs return to Bohler to show off their defensive prowess at 7 p.m. Thursday as they take on Washington to start Conference play.
