THE BLUE CROSS BLUE SHIELD OF NORTH CAROLINA ATHLETE OF THE WEEK (NOVEMBER 4-11)
ANDREA EVANS, EMILY STROMBECK  

Full Name: Andrea Nicole Evans   
Height: 6-2
Major: Biology  
Hometown: Oxford, N.C.
Professional Goals: "I plan on being a registered dietician. I also plan on going to graduate school."
The Student-Athlete: "I felt like it finally came to an end. My four years were done. I was like, if I don't go out with a bang, then what did I play for?"
The evidence for being the BCBSNC Athlete of the Week: Evans is one of the most improved athletes on North Carolina A&T's campus. Her career got off to a slow start, but it ended with a bang. In her final match as an Aggie, Evans had eight kills, no attack errors and an excellent .615 hitting percentage. The senior did not commit a hitting error in her last two matches, which were wins over Savannah State and S.C. State. In leading the Aggies to victory in both matches, Evans helped the Aggies secure their first two-match winning streak in five years.  
Evans on being named BCBSNC Athlete of the Week:
"When I first came in, I actually had a heatstroke, so I spent my first year recovering from that. It took a lot, a lot of work to get to where I am now."

Full Name: Emily Brooke Strombeck
Major: Nursing
Hometown: Durham, N.C.  
Professional Goals: "Right now I'm doing pre-nursing because I've always wanted to be a nurse, but people told me that bowling and nursing was too much work. I couldn't let that affect me and my decision.
The Student-Athlete: "This year will be completely different with all the recruits we have. We've got work to do, but finishing second showed everyone A&T is not a joke this year."
The evidence for being the BCBSNC Athlete of the Week: Strombeck had an average score of 196.3 in four games bowled at the MEAC Southern Divisional Meet No. 1 in Deland, Fla. Strombeck helped the Aggies earn a 5-3 conference record over the weekend, including wins over nationally-ranked Bethune-Cookman and Norfolk State. Strombeck's 785 score was the second-highest tally of the weekend. She bowled a 222 against Bethune-Cookman.
Strombeck on being named BCBSNC Athlete of the Week: "I believe we can win the MEAC this year because we're working hard out here on the lanes. Every practice, we're giving it our all."
