Outside hitter Katty Workman has been named to the 2012 ACC All-Freshman Team, marking the first time a Boston College volleyball player has earned All-ACC honors since 2007, as selected by the league's 12 head coaches and announced by ACC Commissioner John Swofford on Wednesday.
The Thousand Oaks, Calif., native currently leads the ACC in kills per set in both all matches (4.03 k/s) and in conference matches (4.09 k/s). Workman has recorded 11 double-doubles in her rookie campaign and has tallied double-digit kills in 23 of the 28 matches she has played in, including in 13 of the 16 ACC contests she has appeared in.
A product of La Reina High School, Workman, has scored on more kills (395) than any other freshman in program history. Julia El-Hag previously held the record with 358 kills as a rookie in 1997.
Workman earned ACC Freshman of the Week honors on three different occasions this year - on Oct. 15 (for the week of Oct. 8-14), on Sept. 24 (for the week of Sept. 17-23), and on Sept. 10 (for the week of Sept. 3-9).
Some of Workman's top performances of the season included notching 21 kills (on .421 hitting) and 11 digs in BC's first-ever win over Duke (Oct. 6), totaling 18 kills and 17 digs in a win over Wake Forest (Oct. 5), charting a season-high 19 digs and 18 kills against Miami (Oct. 14), and compiling a season-high 22 kills and 10 digs versus Texas Tech (Aug. 25).
The last time an Eagle garnered All-ACC accolades came in 2007 when Kelsey Johnson earned All-ACC Second Team honors and Audrey Eichler took home All-ACC Freshman Team accolades.
