2014-15 #TopORUMoments; #14 - Milos Named Newcomer of the Year

TULSA, Okla. – After a stellar rookie campaign, Oral Roberts freshman volleyball player Laura Milos was named the Summit League Newcomer of the Year.

Included in her freshman accolades, Milos had a career-best 38 kills in a five-set win over Arkansas. She also became the second Golden Eagle to ever earn the award, joining Maja Kuljis in 2001. She finished the year second in the Summit League as one of just two players to finish with more than 500 kills at 502 and averaged 4.37 kills per set, ranking in the top 30 nationally in both categories.

A native of Porec, Croatia, her total kills ranked seventh in the ORU record books in a single-season and her kills per set ranked eighth in a single-season as both were also top 20 marks in The Summit League single-season annuals. Milos also earned all-tournament honors at the ASICS Classic at Pepperdine University and the Golden Hurricane Classic at the University of Tulsa.
