Fourth-year captain Amy Mitchell (Amarillo, Texas/Tascosa) led the Cavaliers with 11 kills in the loss to #19 Maryland last weekend. She also finished with 12 assists, giving her four "double-doubles" on the season (complete team list below). Mitchell enters the week with 952 kills in her career. She is just 48 shy of becoming the fourth Cavalier to reach 1,000 for their career.
The others members of the "1,000 kill" club at Virginia are: Player (years) 1,465 Anne Marie Hammers (88-91) 1,420 Courtney Stanton (92-95) 1,413 Amy Mitchell (94-97) 952
UVa players have recorded 21 "double-doubles" (from four statistical categories...kills, blocks, digs, or assists) on the season. The player-by-player "double-double" breakdown: Player # of "d-d's" Claire Folga 6 Amy Mitchell 4 Jessica Parsons 2 Mary Frances Scott 6 Shannon Wahlers 3 TEAM 21
Note: Mary Frances Scott (Phoenix, Ariz./Xavier College Prep) is the only player to reach double figures in assists (achieved in every match) this year. All 15 of the remaining double-doubles involved only kills and digs. Jessica Parsons (Green Oaks, Ill./Libertyville) had 11 total blocks against Iowa State, but she failed to reach double figures in kills, digs or assists. She is the lone Cavalier to total ten or more blocks in a match this season.
Kristi Winters (Los Altos Hills, Calif./Los Altos) had a career-best effort with six kills against Maryland.
Whitney Bilger (San Diego, Calif./The Bishop's School), Tamara Shulman (Dallas, Texas/Lake Highlands), and Danielle Yanik (South Haven, Mich./South Haven) all appeared in the match against Maryland last weekend. The trio playing in the same match marked the first time this year that even TWO of the three had played in the same match. The three players have lost 45 matches due to injury or illness in 1997.
Scott is averaging 12.1 assists per match in conference play (three matches) as opposed to 11.2 in non-conference action (15 matches).
