Georgia Tech volleyball standouts Jayme Gergen (Topeka, Kansas), Lindsey Laband (Monument, Colo.) and Lynnette Moster (Liberty, Ind.)were each named to American Volleyball Coaches Association (AVCA) all-American teams, which was released Wednesday.
Gergen, who is ranked 13th in the nation in hitting percentage (.393) earned honorable-mention accolades for the first time in her career. A first-team all-Atlantic Coast Conference selection, Gergen led the Jackets in blocks per game (1.30) this season and finished her career ranked second on Tech’s career hitting percentage list (.353) and fifth on the career block assist list (427).
Laband, an honorable-mention selection, currently leads the nation in assists per game (15.40). A second-team all-ACC selection, in her first season as the starting setter, she ran an offense which led the country in kills per game (18.64) and assists per game (17.34)
Moster, a three-time AVCA all-American, garnered third-team all-American honors this season for the second time in her career. The 2004 ACC Player of the Year, Moster becomes the first player in school and ACC history to earn all-American honors three times. The senior outside hitter finished her career as the Georgia Tech career kill leader (1,859), which is ranked fourth on the ACC career kill list.
All three players helped lead the Yellow Jackets to 27-7 record, including a perfect 16-0 record in ACC play, as well as the school’s second straight appearance in the Sweet Sixteen in the NCAA Tournament.
Georgia Tech was the only school from the ACC to have a player earn first, second or third team all-American honors..
