Washington, Perrilloux Named LSU Athletes of the Week

BATON ROUGE — Quarterback Ryan Perrilloux and outside hitter Kyna Washington were named the LSU Male and Female Athletes of the Week on Wednesday following a vote by a local media panel.

In his first career start for the Tigers, Perrilloux completed 20 of his 25 passes for 298 yards and three touchdowns while guiding LSU to a 44-0 victory over Middle Tennessee State. The sophomore from LaPlace, La., threw touchdown passes of 62, 15 and 13 yards and picked up another 37 yards rushing on eight carries.

Washington led the Tiger volleyball team to a sweep of Ole Miss and Arkansas last week, posting back-to-back 20-kill matches. The junior from Houston, Texas, was just two kills shy of LSU’s 16-year old record for kills in a three-game match against Ole Miss, pounding the Rebels for 24. Washington also averaged 7.21 points per game, 6.29 kills and 3.57 digs per game on the week.
