MSU Volleyball senior libero Allyssa Rizzo once again put her name in the record books by becoming the Bobcat’s all-time leader in career digs. After the match on Thursday, Oct. 4, Rizzo totaled 1,730 career digs, ousting the former record holder Kandice Kelley who held 1,720 while playing from 2003 to 2006. Rizzo became the all-time leader on her 12th dig of the night in the Cats’ big win over defending conference champs Idaho. Bobcat head coach Daniel Jones elaborated on Rizzo’s accomplishment saying, ”she was just doing her job. That's the thing with being a libero. Sometimes it's not glamourous work. But she's ranked among the nation's leaders, leads the Big Sky and now has the school record. It's special. She just does her job, has no ego, and sets a great example for what Bobcat volleyball is all about." Her leadership has the Cats sitting second in the Big Sky Conference standings with an overall record of 7-6 and 3-1 in conference. Rizzo’s incredible career in Bozeman continues Thursday, Oct. 11 when MSU travels to Northern Arizona followed by a trip to Southern Utah on Saturday.
