Jonathan Wintermeyer, a 6-6 middle blocker for then-No. 3 New York University, has been named the Sports Imports/AVCA Division III Men's National Player of the Week. Wintermeyer earned the honor for his consistent, all-around play last week against two Division II opponents, and an upset of Division III's then-No. 1 Juniata. In the Violets' sweep of Division II New Haven, Wintermeyer hit .500 on 12 kills in 20 attempts with only two errors, while tallying eight blocks, one dig and one ace in the contest. In NYU's upset of top-ranked Juniata, he hit an incredible .789 on 15 kills in 19 attempts and zero errors, adding six blocks and two aces.  The victory was the Violets' first over the Eagles since April 6, 2002. While his team's third match of the week was a tough four-game loss to Division II New Jersey Institute of Technology, Wintermeyer still came up strong, putting away 11 kills while hitting .368 and earning three blocks in the match. For the week, the senior hit at a .552 clip, while averaging nearly 3.8 kills, 1.7 blocks and 5.05 points per game. Wintermeyer is the 17th player from NYU to earn the Sports Imports/AVCA Division III Men's National Player of the Week award, and the third Violet to earn the award this year. It is also the second time in his career that he has earned the honor, with the previous time being January 23, 2006. The Violets are coached by Jose Pina.
