Feb. 2, 2000

TALLAHASSEE, Fla. — Florida State volleyball Head Coach Dr. Cecile
Reynaud has announced the signing of Jennifer Anderson, a setter from
Minier, Illinois, to a National Letter of Intent to play for the Lady
Seminoles next fall.

The 5’9″ Anderson was a four-year volleyball letterwinner at
Olympia High School in Stanford, Ill., who was recently selected to
All-Stater Sports Magazine’s Class of 2000 Volleyball Super 75 after a
stellar prep career. Pegged a 1997 Junior National All-American, Anderson
went on to captain her Olympia squad in 1998 and 1999. She was chosen the
Most Valuable Player at Olympia High as a senior after receiving the
school’s Leadership, Serving and Offensive Awards in 1998. A two-time
All-Cornbelt Conference first team selection, Anderson also garnered first
team Pantagraph all-area and Champaign News-Gazette all-state honors in
1998 and 1999 and was a member of the first team Peoria Journal Star
all-area team in her final season. Anderson also captained her club team,
the Illinois Juniors Volleyball Club, for four years.

An outstanding student, Anderson is valedictorian of her class and
is the recipient of the Principal’s Leadership Award. A member of the
National Honor Society, she is active with the Student Council, Spanish
Club, Bank Board, Torch staff (high school newspaper) and CAPTAINS, a
drug-free organization.

“Jen is going to be fun to have on the team,” Reynaud said. “She
is a great competitor in the gym, whether she is playing volleyball or
training physically, and in the classroom. Her high level of motivation to
be successful will be contagious throughout our team.”

Anderson, who also considered Illinois State, Purdue, Marquette and
Drake, plans to major in secondary education at Florida State.
