Seward County Community College freshman volleyball player, Katy Troutman, has broken the Lady Saints all-time single-season record for defensive digs. Troutman, a 5 foot-4 inch libero, from Broken Arrow, Oklahoma, improved her season total for digs to 598, after recording 61 digs in three matches last weekend at the SCCC Invitational in Liberal. Troutman breaks the all-time single-season record that was previously set in 1998 by former Seward County First Team NJCAA All-American, Gabi Carbone, who posted 589 digs in 57 matches during the 1998 season. Troutmanís 598 digs have come in only 35 matches this season.

Troutman, a 2006 graduate of Tulsa Union High School, has been the Lady Saints top defensive back-row player this season. In her first season at Seward County, Troutman has led the Lady Saints in digs during 29-of-35 matches and has posted seven 20 dig matches, four 30 digs contests and recorded a career-high 33 digs twice against Barton County Community College (10/12/06) and against Casper College (9/21/06).

Troutman is averaging 4.90 digs per game (122 games played), ranking her 25th in the NJCAA. She is also second on the team in service aces (34) and has nine assists and three kills this year.
