It was a pretty good week for KU junior Caroline Jarmoc, a middle blocker on the Jayhawks’ surging volleyball team. Two victories, including a season-defining win over a ranked Kansas State squad. Her first career double-double. And now this:
Jarmoc was selected the American Volleyball Coaches Association (AVCA) National Player of the Week on Tuesday.
"It's a huge honor to be recognized like this," Jarmoc said. "I didn't even know there was a national player of the week or anything like that, but to be recognized by something even bigger than your conference is awesome."
Jarmoc, a native of Calgary, Alberta, had 11 kills and 12 blocks in KU’s victory over K-State. She followed that up with a career-high 23 kills in a win over TCU. Her performance helped lift Kansas, 19-3, 7-1 Big 12, to a program-best No. 8 mark in the RPI rankings and a No. 17 ranking in the AVCA Division I Coaches poll.
