Oct. 16, 2013
SAN DIEGO, Calif. - San Diego State assistant volleyball coach Kele Eveland is set be inducted into the Georgia Tech Athletics Hall of Fame in ceremonies to take place on Friday, Oct. 18, in Atlanta. The fifth-year Aztec assistant is one of the most decorated female student-athletes in Georgia Tech history and the only first-team AVCA All-American from the Atlantic Coast Conference.
Eveland was the Yellow Jackets' starting setter from 2000-03, and finished her career ranked fourth in the NCAA record books with 6,464 assists. The 2003 ACC Player of the Year, 2000 Rookie of the Year and three-time all-ACC honoree averaged 13.38 assists per game and still ranks in the top-10 in the Tech career annals for digs and block assists. She holds the school record and three of the top seven marks in Yellow Jacket history, for assists in a season.
In addition to garnering first-team all-America accolades as a senior in 2003, Eveland was honored as the recipient of the Georgia Tech Total Person Award in 2004, recognizing the top Yellow Jacket student-athlete of the year. She also earned Academic All-America honors her senior year and was a recipient of NCAA and ACC Postgraduate Scholarships.
Eveland became the first - and only - female in Georgia Tech history to have her jersey retired when the school did so in a pre-match ceremony at O'Keefe Gym September 9, 2005.
