Volleyball's Ashley Gonzalez BCC Student-Athlete of Week


October 22, 2012 - Volleyball outside hitter Ashley Gonzalez is the Brevard Community College student-athlete of the week for the week ending Oct. 21.

Gonzalez, a 5-foot, 8-inch freshman from Houston County High School in Warner Robbins, GA, finished the week with a team-high 53 kills. BCC went 3-1 in a weekend tournament at Lake Sumter to improve to 7-23 on the season.

BCC head coach Herb Tokumoto praised Gonzalez's efforts.

"Ashley is a young lady filled with the desire to attain the goals that she has set forth," Tokumoto said. "Whether in the classroom or on the court she exhibits joy and desire for herself and teammates to achieve.

"I get to deal with her on a daily basis. With her positive disposition and her joyful personality I have totally enjoyed her on the team. Her positive attitude towards court instruction and her real time adjustments makes a difference to me as her coach. It tells me she is attentive to the coaching staff's advice."
