HAMILTON, N.Y. - Colgate senior libero Natalie Rawson recorded 40 digs in the Raiders' four-game loss to Canisius on Saturday, Sept. 11. It was the most digs recorded by any Colgate player in a four-game match in the school history. It tied for the ninth-most in the NCAA since the libero rule went into effect in 2001.
Catalina Suarez of UMKC set the NCAA record for digs in a four-game match with 56 versus UTEP on Sept. 29, 1989.
Rawson leads the Patriot League in digs this season with 6.26 digs per game, and is averaging more than two digs per game more than her nearest competitor. Through matches of Sept. 5, Rawson ranks 29th in the NCAA with 5.55 digs per game. Last season, she set the Colgate single-season record and finished 25th in the NCAA with 440 digs and 4.49 digs per game.
Colgate hosts St. John's, Princeton and Siena in the Colgate Classic, Sept. 17-18, at Cotterell Court.
