Junior Cynthia Barboza (Long Beach, Calif./Long Beach Wilson) of the Stanford women's volleyball team was selected as the Stanford/Muscle Milk Student-Athlete of the Week for Aug. 20-Aug. 26.
Barboza, an outside hitter, made a splash in her Long Beach homecoming on Saturday, recording a double-double with 18 kills and 10 digs in the squad's season-opening 30-26, 30-19, 30-27 sweep of Long Beach State. Barboza hit .484 and led the team to a .427 hitting percentage, a clip bested just twice by the squad in 2006.
This is Barboza's first Stanford/Muscle Milk Student-Athlete of the Week honor of 2007-08. Barboza and the rest of the Cardinal women's volleyball squad return to action on Friday, Aug. 31 against San Diego at the Diet Coke Classic in Minneapolis, Minn.
