Freshman Warmington Named Conference Player of the Year
Nov. 7, 2012
LANCASTER, PA - Freshman Jasmine Warmington has been named Centennial Conference Player of the Year and Rookie of the Year after an outstanding season thus far for the Johns Hopkins volleyball team. Warmington leads a group of three Blue Jays named to the All-Centennial Conference team.
Warmington is the third Hopkins player in history to earn the conference player of the year honor, joining Katie O'Callaghan (2005) and Mary Alexis Paul (2000). She is also just the second freshman in conference history to win the award.
The Ontario, CA native has been dominant at the net this season for the Blue Jays, leading the conference in total kills (357), kills/s (3.47) and total points (401), while ranking second in hitting percentage (.340) and third in blocks (77). She was even more commanding in conference action, notching 3.62 kills/s with a phenomenal .487 hitting percentage.
A year removed from switching to libero, Thomas ranks third in the conference in total digs (378) and fifth in digs/s (4.06). The Baltimore native had a career-high 37 digs against St. Mary's (MD).
Schwarz currently leads the Blue Jays in double-doubles, and has been a fantastic all-around player in 2012. She ranks first on the team in service aces/s (0.48) and total aces (46), while ranking second in kills/s (2.31), total kills (219) and digs (258).
Hopkins ranks third among conference teams in total first team selections (21), behind Gettysburg (32) and Franklin & Marshall (27). Warmington was unanimously selected to the first team by the coaches.
The Blue Jays return to action in the first round of the NCAA tournament against Richard Stockton in Salisbury, MD at 5:30 pm on Friday, November 9.
