Senior Kristy Gilchrist (Macomb/Anchor Bay) of the 2009 Ferris State University women's volleyball team was honored prior to Friday's (Nov. 6) match versus Michigan Tech for recording the 1,000 kill of her career earlier this season.

Gilchrist became the 16th player in Ferris State women's volleyball history to attain 1,000 career kills when she registered 15 kills in a conference home match against Ashland earlier this season (Oct. 10).

For her career, Gilchrist has currently totaled 1,076 kills to go with a .241 hitting percentage and 103 service aces in 117 matches.  The 6-0 middle hitter has also compiled 233 digs, 333 total blocks, 45 block solos, and 288 block assists to date.

Gilchrist, a two-time GLIAC North Division Player of the Week selection this season, presently ranks 14th among the Bulldogs' all-time statistical leaders in both total blocks (333) and block assists (288).  The 2008 All-Great Lakes Intercollegiate Athletic Conference (GLIAC) Honorable Mention honoree is listed 19th in block solos (45) while tying for 26th place in service aces (103).

A 2007 second-team All-GLIAC performer, Gilchrist was within eight kills of moving into tie for 15th place on the program's all-time kills leader chart prior to this Saturday's (Nov. 7) regular-season finale match against Northern Michigan.
