Release: Monday 02/14/2011 

LA JOLLA, Calif. - UCSD women's volleyball players Roxanne Brunsting and Kaitlin Potter picked up awards at the team's annual postseason banquet on Sunday, Feb. 13. Brunsting was honored as the Tritons' Most Valuable Player, while Potter took home the Coaches' Award.

Brunsting, an outside hitter/setter, was named to both the AVCA and Daktronics All- American Honorable Mention lists. The junior from Chula Vista led the Tritons in service aces, was second in kills, points and assists and third in digs. Brunsting had never set until 2010, and she ended up with six triple-doubles (kills-assists-digs) over the season. Brunsting is majoring in psychology in Roosevelt College.

Potter won the Coaches' Award for being the ultimate team player - dedicated, hard- working and constantly striving to help the team achieve its goals. The senior middle blocker from Huntington Beach played in a career-high 72 sets in 2010, starting 17 matches. She was fourth on the team in kills per set and blocks per set. Potter is a theatre major in Marshall College.

The Tritons finished the 2010 season ranked 25th in the nation with a 19-9 overall record. UCSD advanced to its fifth consecutive NCAA Tournament, winning its first round match against Sonoma State.
