Virginia's Mitchell Reaches Second Milestone in Two Weeks
CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. - Less than two weeks after reaching the 1,000-kill plateau, Virginia outside hitter Amy Mitchell (Amarillo, Texas/Tascosa) became the fourth player in school history to record 1,000 digs during Saturday afternoon's loss at Florida State. Mitchell reached the magic 1,000-mark on her first dig of the match in the first game.
Mitchell thus becomes just the third player in school history to achieve both 1,000 kills and 1,000 digs. Former players Ann Marie Hammers (1988-91) and Courtney Stanton (1992-95) are the other UVa all-time greats to appear on these lists.
"Getting 1,000 digs is nice because I have always prided myself on my defense," said Mitchell. "These milestones [the kills and digs] will mean more to me in the future than they do right now. As a team we are focused on beating North Carolina and N.C. State next weekend."
Virginia (16-15, 4-10 ACC) returns to the court next weekend for the final appearances by both Mitchell and Shannon Wahlers (Phoenix, Ariz./Independence) at Memorial Gymnasium. Match time for both the North Carolina match (Friday, November 14) and the N.C. State match (Saturday, November 15) are set for 7:00 pm. Admission is free.
