ATLANTA – Along with Wake Forest’s Jessica Furlong, Georgia Tech junior Ulrike Stegemann has been named the Atlantic Coast Conference Volleyball Player of the Week, as announced by the ACC office. Both student-athletes helped their teams post 2-0 records in conference action over the weekend.
“We couldn’t be more proud of Ulli,” said Georgia Tech head coach Bond Shymansky. “Even though she struggled through a shoulder injury early-on in our conference schedule, she has fought through it and is really coming on strong for us right now.”
This marks the second-straight week that a Yellow Jacket has won the award, and fourth this season.
Stegemann helped the Yellow Jackets notch a pair of road victories at Miami and Florida State this past weekend. The middle hitter posted a season-high 19 kills at Miami, helping Tech to its second five-game win in three matches. She also set a career high with six assists in the match. At FSU on Sunday, Stegemann played some of her best volleyball this season, as she added 10 kills, hit .444, dished out five services aces and posted five digs and three blocks to help Tech extend its winning streak to four matches.
The junior from Schwerin, Germany, Stegemann hit a strong .431 on the week, averaging 3.22 kills, 1.33 digs, 0.78 assists and 0.89 service aces per game.
Georgia Tech will conclude their 2006 road matches this weekend at NC State and North Carolina.
