Dax Whitehead (MVB)
Whitehead not only had a great month, he has had an incredible career with the Kodiaks. On Jan. 26, Whitehead became the career kills leader in both the ACAC and CCAA, with his 1,109th kill.
Dax is second on the Kodiaks in kills this season and averaged 10 kills per match over the first eight games of the second semester. Whitehead is a big part of the reason that the Kodiaks are second in the CCAA national rankings.
Whitehead (fifth year, General Studies, Moose Jaw, Sask.) plays a strong all-around game and is sixth in the conference in hitting percentage and 18th in digs per set.
Juhee Anderson (WBB)
Anderson has stepped right in as an on-and-off-court leader in her first season with the Kodiaks.
A transfer from Mount Royal University, Anderson is the Kodiaks leading scorer. In eight games in January, Juhee scored 108 points, an average of 15.4 per game. That is ahead of her season average of 14.3 points per game, which places her 11th in the ACAC. She twice scored 23 points in a game – the highest single game total by a Kodiaks player this season.
Anderson (fourth year, Exercise Science, Cardston) has helped the Kodiaks to a 14-5 record, tied for second place in the ACAC south division.
