OMAHA, Neb. – Recognition continues to roll in for outside hitter Teegan Van Gunst, who was named an American Volleyball Coaches Association (AVCA) Honorable Mention All-American. It marks Georgia Tech volleyball’s first AVCA All-America award since 2012.
“It’s a great honor for Teegan,” head coach Michelle Collier said. “She’s very deserving and among an elite group of players. It’s a great reflection of where our program is going and I look forward to having her back on the court next season.”
A native of Fayetteville, Ga., Van Gunst was named to the 2015 All-ACC first team and the AVCA East Coast All-Region team after leading the ACC in kills (471) and kills/set (3.92).
Van Gunst became the first Yellow Jacket to earn All-ACC first team, AVCA All-Region and AVCA All-America honorable mention honors since Monique Mead in 2012. In addition, Van Gunst’s 471 kills ranked No. 43 in the NCAA, and were the most by a Yellow Jacket since Mead put down 459.
Georgia Tech went 18-14 marking the most wins for the Jackets since going 19-12 in 2012.
Van Gunst started all 120 sets this season and scored 20 double-doubles. She tallied 25 matches with 10 or more kills, and 23 matches with 10 or more digs. Van Gunst was named the ACC Player of the Week twice (Sept. 7, Sept. 28), and named to the CoSIDA Academic All-District 4 team and selected a CoSIDA Academic All-American.
