Penn State senior volleyball standout Blair Brown won the 2011 Honda Sports Award for volleyball, designating her as the nation's top collegiate female athlete in the sport. She becomes the third straight Penn State player to win the award, following Nicole Fawcett in 2009 and Megan Hodge in 2010. It is the fifth time a Big Ten player has won the honor as the Nittany Lions' Lauren Cacciamani won the 1999 award and Illinois' Mary Eggers in 1998.

Brown won Big Ten Player of the Year honors this season and ended her career as a three-time AVCA All-American and a four-time national champion. This season, she led Penn State with 521 kills, averaging 4.24 kills per set on .320 hitting.
