CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va.—Virginia volleyball freshman Jasmine Burton has been named the Virginia State Rookie of the Year, the Virginia Sports Information Directors (VaSID) announced Monday (Dec. 23). Sophomore Lauren Fuller was recognized on the all-state first team, while Burton and junior Tori Janowski were honored on the second team.

Burton (White Hills, Calif.) was named the ACC Freshman of the Year and was listed on the All-ACC Third Team and ACC All-Freshman Team. As a right-side hitter, Burton was third on the Cavalier team with 380 kills, 2.97 kills per set, 73 blocks and a .259 hitting percentage. The kills and kills per set marks rank fifth on UVa's freshman record list, while the hitting percentage is the seventh-best mark. Her 68 block assists rank as the eighth-most on Virginia's freshman list.

Fuller (Manhattan Beach, Calif.), who earned AVCA All-East Coast Region Honorable Mention and All-ACC Second Team accolades, dished out 1,455 assists in her first season in Charlottesville after transferring from Arizona following her freshman season. The setter's 1,455 assists rank as the sixth-most in Virginia single-season history. Fuller averaged 11.37 assists per set, which is the eighth-best mark on the Cavalier single-season list and was second most in the ACC this year.

Janowski (Sterling, Va.), listed on the All-ACC Third Team and an AVCA All-East Coast Honorable Mention, returned to outside hitter a year after being the team's setter in 2012 and notched a team-high 462 kills, 3.61 kills per set and 46 service aces (0.36). Her aces ranked third in the conference this year and her 3.61 kills per set ranks fourth on UVa's single-season charts. The tally of 462 kills is eighth most in Cavalier history.


 

 

The trio helped lead the Cavaliers to an 18-14 record in 2013, doubling its win total from 2012 (nine wins). UVa finished in a tie for fifth in the ACC with an 11-9 mark after winning just three conference matches the year before (3-17).
