The Georgia Tech volleyball team is on a tear, and the biggest reason for it…..the play of Lynnette Moster.
Now at 16-5 on the season, the Jackets have currently won 14 matches in a row, including 10 straight Atlantic Coast Conference matches and have not lost since the second weekend of the season. It should be noted that of the five matches Tech has lost, they have all been to teams who were either ranked at the time or have been ranked at some point during the 2004 season.
During this stretch, Moster has been the difference in Tech’s success, posting a .342 hitting percentage and averaging 5.50 kills per game. She currently is ranked 14th in the nation in kills per game (5.21) and is one of only two outside hitters ranked in the top-10 in the ACC in hitting percentage (.310). A two-time ACC Player of the Week this season, Moster is the ONLY player in the ACC to be ranked in kills per game, hitting percentage, digs per game and service aces per game.
“Lynnette continues to show why she is a two-time all-American,” said head coach Bond Shymansky, who in three years has a 83-15 coaching record. “Sometimes, I imagine that she will plateau and not get any better – and then she goes out and performs at a higher level the very next match. There is no question she will be our anchor down the stretch this year.”
