ECAC Names Bunker to Volleyball All-Star Team
CENTERVILLE, Mass. – The postseason recognition of the MIT women's volleyball team continued on Friday as senior Kristine Bunker (Falmouth, Mass.) was voted to the Eastern College Athletic Conference Division III New England Volleyball All-Star second team. The award marks the second consecutive accolade for the Engineers from the association as Katie Spielbauer '13 also secured a spot on the second team.
During the past month, Bunker was placed on the American Volleyball Coaches Association All-America honorable mention and All-New England Region teams. In addition, she copped NEWMAC all-conference first team and NEWVA All-New England second team accolades. A NEWMAC academic all-conference pick, Bunker secured a spot on the Capital One Academic All-America second team earlier this week. She finished the season as the NEWMAC leader in hitting percentage (.374) while ranking 15th in the country. In the MIT record book, Bunker placed fourth in blocks (350), fifth in hitting percentage (.320), and tied for sixth in career blocks per set (0.82).
