Volleyball's Katty Workman, behind the strength of two double-doubles, has been named the ACC Freshman of the Week for the week of Sept. 3-9, as announced by the conference office.

Workman's 35 kills (3.18 k/s) and 31 digs (2.82 d/s) on the weekend helped BC go 2-1 at the Spring Hill Suites at Arundel Mills Invitational with 3-1 wins over ACC foe Maryland and non-conference opponent George Washington.

In the ACC-opening win at Maryland, the Thousand Oaks, Calif. native recorded her fourth double-double of the season with 12 kills and 11 digs. The 6-0 outside hitter notched eight digs in BC's decisive 25-22 fourth set victory and served on five of BC's winning points during a 7-1 run that closed out a 25-23 first set win.

In the win over George Washington, the La Reina High School product registered her fifth double-double of the season with a match-high 16 kills and a career-high 14 digs. In the deciding fourth set, Workman notched seven kills on .263 hitting, and had two kills in BC's last four points in a 28-26 overtime set win.

On the season Workman leads the Eagles and is fifth in the ACC with 3.76 k/s (143 total kills). Her 3.76 k/s ranks as the highest kills per set average of any freshman or sophomore in the league. She has had double-digit kills in eight of the season's first 10 matches and has recorded double-digit digs in four of her last five matches.
