ISU’s Schaben hits 1,000-kill career mark, also repeats as Academic All-Big 12 selection
FORT WORTH, TEX. (Nov. 18) -- Former Harlan Community star Jess Schaben surpassed 1,000 career kills at the collegiate level on Saturday night, leading the 23rd-ranked Iowa State volleyball team to a 3-0 sweep of TCU (25-19, 25-16, 25-14) for the Cyclones’ 20th win of the season.
Schaben, the daughter of Bryce and Carrie Schaben, rural Defiance, finished the match with a team-high 12 kills to go with seven digs. With one of her spikes in the third set, the 6-foot-2 junior outside hitter became just the 10th player in Iowa State history to reach 1,000 career kills. Schaben leads ISU this season with 3.18 kills per set and also averages 2.94 digs. The Cyclones are 20-6 overall and 10-5 in the Big 12 Conference.
Academic All-Big 12:
Schaben is also excelling in the classroom at Iowa State. Last Tuesday, she was one of four ISU players named to the 2017 Academic All-Big 12 First Team. It was the second straight year she has achieved first-team rank on the Big 12 academic list, which requires at least a 3.20 GPA as cumulative or during a two-semester stretch and also participating in 60 percent of the team’s scheduled contests. Schaben is an Elementary Education major.
