Aug 26, 2013
Chestnut Hill, Mass.-
Sophomore outside hitter Katty Workman has been named to the 2013 Preseason All-Atlantic Coast Conference Volleyball Team, as selected by the league's head coaches and announced by ACC Commissioner John Swofford on Monday. Boston College volleyball has been predicted by the league's head coaches to finish 14th in the 2013 ACC preseason poll.
A product of Thousand Oaks, Calif., Workman made an immediate impact on the team during her rookie campaign, setting BC's freshman record for kills in a season (421) while also ranking sixth in that same category all-time at Boston College. The outside hitter recorded 12 double-doubles and earned ACC Freshman of the Week honors on multiple occasions.
Workman was named to the 2012 ACC All-Freshman team last season, marking the first time a Boston College volleyball player has earned All-ACC honors since 2007. She has scored on more kills (395) than any other freshman in program history.
Florida State, favored to repeat as champions of the conference, accumulated the maximum possible point total of 196. First-place votes received 14 points, second-place votes received 13 points, etc. Coaches were not permitted to incorporate their own team in their predicted order of finish.
North Carolina scored 178 points for second place, while Miami (169), Notre Dame (153), and NC State (133), comprised the top five. Duke's 126 points positioned it ahead of Virginia Tech (122), Clemson (109), Georgia Tech (82), Maryland (81), Virginia (64), Syracuse (51), Pittsburgh (49), Boston College (33) and Wake Forest (29) completed the predicted order.
The Eagles open their season on the road against South Carolina-Upstate on Aug. 30 at 2 p.m. in the second game of the Western Carolina Invitational. Boston College will play their first game in the Power Gym on Sept. 7 against Bryant University in the BC Invitational.
