Lynnette Moster, a 5-10 sophomore outside hitter for Georgia Tech (9-2), has been chosen the AVCA/Sports Imports Division I National Player of the Week after leading the Yellow Jackets to wins over two nationally ranked teams at the South Florida Adidas Invitational this past weekend.
Moster pounded 20 or more kills in all four matches for a 5.76 per game average for the tournament. She claimed a 20-kill, 20-dig double-double in pushing Georgia Tech to a four-game win over then-No. 19 Michigan State. Moster followed that up with a career-high 31 kills in a five-game loss to South Florida and went on to post 26 kills as her squad handed then-No. 24 Kansas State a four-game defeat. Moster tallied 64 digs, seven blocks and three aces on the weekend, en route to earning tourney MVP honors.
Moster joins former standouts Kerry Annel (1992-95), Cris Omiecinski (1992-95) and Rochelle Komula (1994-97) as the only players in Georgia Tech history to be honored as the national player of the week.
