BIRMINGHAM, Ala. – For the second time in four week, Jasmine Eatmon has garnered Southeastern Conference weekly honors after being named the Co-Freshman of the Week. Florida’s Živa Recek was the second player to earn Co-Freshman of the Week honors.
It is the first time since the 2010 season that Georgia has earned weekly honors twice in the same season. It is the first time since the 2008 season that a single Georgia player has garnered SEC weekly honors twice in one season and the first time since Maria Taylor in 2005 that a Bulldog has earned Freshman of the Week honors twice in one season.
The Rancho Cucamonga, Calif., native hit .459 for the week, including a career-best .688 against Mizzou, going 11-for-16 without committing an error. Against the Tigers, Eatmon finished with 11 kills, four assists, three digs and three blocks. Her .688 hitting percentage was the second highest among any Georgia player this season.
In a 3-2 loss to Kentucky, Eatmon finished with nine kills, six digs and two blocks.
Briana Bahr earned a spot in the SEC’s “Other Top Performances” after leading all Georgia players with nine blocks over two matches, including six against Kentucky.
