Felsing On Active Double-Figure Digs List

Thanks to some research by Matt Shoultz from Iowa State - with assistance from a few of us in the Horizon League and others - a list of active double-figure digs streaks has been compiled.

According to the research - and upon seeing the list a few other schools might discover new entries - Lauren Felsing's streak of 39-straight matches in double figures in digs ranks fifth in the country among active streaks. Brittany Malicoat of Valparaiso actually has the longest active streak in the country, having reached double figures in 63-straight matches. The all-time longest streak is 80 matches, set by Jocelyn Wack of Wisconsin from 2004-2006.

Felsing's streak of 39-straight matches puts her 13th on the all-time list.

Felsing isn't the only Panther with a notable digs streak - in fact Becky Peters has three of them. Twice she has reached double figures in digs in 25-straight matches, a mark that sits 26th all-time. She also has a streak of 31-straight matches, which ranks 16th all-time.

While we're recounting some volleyball stat notes, the new NCAA stats are out. Felsing is 24th nationally in digs per set while Peters is 33rd nationally in kills per set. As a team, UWM ranks 17th nationally in digs per set.
