Holt leads the team offensively with a 3.85 kps average and a 4.52 pps average, both which are seventh-best in the Pac-12. Her 0.29 service aces per set average leads the Cougars and is eighth-best in the Pac-12. Holt has recorded double-digit kills in 26 of the 29 Cougars' matches this season and has had 11 double-doubles with kills and digs. Her 420 kills this season is 28 from 10th-best on the WSU all-time single season list.
