ATLANTA – Northern Illinois University assistant volleyball coach Lynnette Moster will be inducted into the Georgia Tech Athletics Hall of Fame, the school announced Thursday.
Moster will officially be inducted in a ceremony in Atlanta on Friday, Oct. 10.
"I am honored to be joining such a prestigious group of Georgia Tech alumni in the Hall of Fame,” Moster said. “Thank you to the Hall of Fame Committee for nominating and selecting me for this amazing award. My experience as a Yellow Jacket was extraordinary because of such a wonderful team, staff and student-athlete support system. Without the positive experience at Georgia Tech, I would not be where I am today as a collegiate volleyball coach at NIU. I hope to assist with giving the Huskies the same positive experience I had as a Yellow Jacket and more."
Moster was a three-time All-America outside hitter in her four seasons with the Yellow Jackets, becoming the first three-time All-American in Atlantic Coast Conference history. She was also named ACC Player of the Year following the 2004 season. The Liberty, Indiana, native ranks second in program history in career kills (1,849), third in kills per set (4.02), fifth in digs (1,456), fourth in digs per set (3.15), third in service aces (193), second in service aces per set (0.42) and eighth in career hitting percentage (.308).
Moster was also a four-time all-ACC selection, garnering first team honors as an outside hitter in 2002, 2003 and 2004 along with second team all-conference recognition as a defensive specialist in 2001. She also earned the team’s MVP award in 2002 and was named Georgia Tech’s Most Valuable Female Athlete for the 2002-03 year after posting a school record of 629 kills. Moster helped the Yellow Jackets advance to the NCAA Tournament in all four seasons, including an appearance in the regional finals in 2003.
