Pair of volleyball players earn A-10 weekly honors

Volleyball players Katie Zulandt and Rachael Goss were named Atlantic 10 Defensive Player of the Week and Co-Rookie of the Week, respectively, the conference announced Tuesday. It is the first weekly award for both players.

Zulandt, a team captain for GW, set a career high in kills last Sunday with 13 in the Colonials’ 3-1 win over Saint Louis, the team’s first-ever win over the Billikens. The senior has started all but one set for GW thus far in the season and her 3.36 points per set is ninth-best in the A-10.

Goss also set a career high in kills last week, recording 16 in GW’s 3-1 win over Virginia Commonwealth. Playing against her sister, Duquesne’s Katie Goss, Rachael had 14 kills and a career-best 15 digs in the Colonials’ 3-2 loss to the Dukes.

After four games at home, the Colonials will be back on the road later this week when they take on Rhode Island in Kingston, R.I., this Friday. First serve is scheduled for 7 p.m.
