Ohta and Dunsmore Awarded Player of the Week Honors

    Ohta, who hails from Whitney High School in Cypress, Calif., earned her first ever Player of the Week honors after spearheading the Tritonsí perfect 3-0 campaign in the Radisson Hotel Coyote Classic. The tournament, hosted by Cal State San Bernadino, included UCSDís upset sweep of then top-ranked, defending champion BYU Hawaii.

    Ohta was clearly the star of the tournament, recording 135 assists, 28 digs, 9 kills and no errors. She also averaged 13.50 assists per game, 2.80 digs per game and a .409 attacking percentage.

    Ohta adds this honor to her collection of numerous awards including CCAA and Pacific Region Freshman of the Year, All-CCAA, NCAA All Tournament and 2002 All-Pacific Region Honorable Mention.

    Dunsmore, who hails from Vista High School in Oceanside, Calif., was awarded Player of the Week honors for the second time in her career. Her all around play during a home stint against Cal State Bakersfield and Cal State Stanislaus resulted in Triton victories against both opponents.

    In these, Dunsmore contributed 39 digs, 27 kills and 2 assists. She averaged 3.86 kills, 5.57 digs, 0.29 blocks and 0.29 assists against CSUB and CSUS.

    Dunsmore, who was All-CCAA and Team Co-Outstanding Freshman, has been one of head coach Duncan McFarlandís valuable assets. Last year, she led UCSD with 101 games played, 288 kills, 864 attacks, 36 aces and 305 digs.
