CORAL GABLES, Fla. – Peyman Yardimci was tabbed ACC Freshman of the Week, the Atlantic Coast Conference announced Tuesday afternoon.

The freshman helped lead the Hurricanes to a 2-0 weekend on the road with a five-set win over in-state rival Florida State and a victory over North Carolina in four sets. Miami’s two wins marked season sweeps over both opponents, the first over FSU since 2008 and first over UNC since 2004.
Yardimci tallied 16 kills and 11 digs in the win over the Seminoles for her third career double-double.
