Wintermeyer Notches 1000th Career Kill In DIII No. 2 NYU's Win Over Sacred Heart
Fairfield, Conn. - Senior tri-captain Jonathan Wintermeyer recorded 16 kills and hit a perfect 1.000 on his way to recording his 1,000th career kill as the New York University men's volleyball team swept Sacred Heart University on Saturday, April 5, in Fairfield, CT.
The Violets (21-7, 8-2 EIVA Hay), currently ranked #2 in the CBS College Sports Network/AVCA Division III Men's Coaches Top 15 Poll, easily defeated the Pioneers (6-13, 1-8 EIVA Hay) in three games 30-18, 30-25, 31-29 to finish out the 2008 regular season.
Wintermeyer, who tallied his 1,000th kill early in game three, has recorded 341 kills thus far this season, the most by an NYU middle since Mitch Kallick in 2002.
Senior tri-captain David Tener also made history by putting up 10 digs and raising his career rally-scoring digs record total to 672.
Also in double-digits for the Violets was junior tri-captain Devin Zolnowski, who notched 12 kills along with two digs and two blocks.
Leading the way for the Pioneers was Kalani Efstathiou, who put down a team-high 13 kills along with eight digs.
Dan DuVall put up a team-best 33 assists while Dan Donohue dug up a team-high nine balls for Sacred Heart.
The Violets must now wait to see who they will face in the EIVA Playoffs starting April 16 at 7:00 pm. The team will face the #5 team in the EIVA Tait division.
