Warmington Hauls In Region Freshman Freshman of the Year Honor
Nov. 8, 2012
LEXINGTON, KY - Postseason accolades continue to pile up for Johns Hopkins freshman Jasmine Warmington, who has been named the American Volleyball Coaches Association Division III Mid-Atlantic Region Freshman of the Year. She is the first player in Hopkins history to earn the honor.
In addition to being named the region's freshman of the year, Warmington also earned a spot on the Mid-Atlantic First Team, joining Salisbury's Ashlyn Tapley as the only freshmen on the list. The Blue Jays' Melissa Cole (2011) and current sophomore Meagan Donohoe were named to the first team last season.
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.
Warmington was named Centennial Conference Player of the Year on November 7, becoming just the second freshman in conference history to win the award. She also broke the Hopkins single-season freshman record for kills, set in 2000 by Stephanie Kaliades.
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. Hopkins is 9-3 all-time against the Ospreys, last meeting in 2008.
