ATLANTA, Ga. – Florida State struggled in its seventh-straight road match against Georgia Tech, falling 0-3 (21-25, 16-25, 17-25) in O’Keefe Gymnasium on Friday night. The loss drops the Seminoles to 1-3 in the Atlantic Coast Conference and 9-5 overall but propels the Yellow Jackets to 3-1 in the conference and 11-3 on the season.

The Yellow Jackets held FSU to a .063 team attack percentage while junior Lauren Young was the only Nole to post an average over .220, managing a .250 on 12 attempts with five kills.
Lauren Richardson contributed seven kills and one solo block and fellow sophomore Stephanie Neville also put down seven kills and had a block assist. Libero and ACC leader in digs per set Ashlee Moon recorded 15 digs against the Jackets, helping FSU to 43 total (just two shy of Georgia Tech’s total).
