Providence, RI - Head volleyball coach Diane Short announced Tuesday that next season, seniors Shawn Tulac (Claremont, CA) and Jessica Kondrick (San Diego, CA) will lead the 2006 squad as co-captains.
For Tulac, this will be her second season as co-captain, having been one in 2005 as well. Tulac was one of four Bears who played in all of the team's games during the past season. She was also one of the major drivers of the Brown offense, tallying over 1,000 attacks and nearly 300 kills in total. Tulac was in the top 10 in the Ivy League for kills/game all year, and finished third best in aces/game as well.
Kondrick was also among the four players who competed in all of Brown's games in 2005. Kondrick stepped up all facets of her game to become a full-time starter in the challenging middle blocker position. She was the team's leading blocker for the season, and averaged nearly a block per game in Ivy League play.
In this selection of captains, Short feels that the team has a very complimentary pairing which is comparable to those from previous championship seasons.
