TALLAHASSEE, Fla. – The 2003 Florida State volleyball team has been working hard in the off-season in preparation for a tough 2003 schedule. On Saturday, August 23rd, the Seminoles will hold an intra-squad scrimmage, which will allow the team to work in a game-type setting. The 16-member squad will split into two teams and begin play at 6:00 p.m. at Tully Gymnasium. The scrimmage will be open to the public.
“We’ve had good practices and the girls have really come together,” said head coach Todd Kress. “I have seen how our players work in practice, but this will allow me to evaluate their competitiveness in a game-type situation.”
Since returning to practice the players have been working hard and have high expectations for the 2003 season. The transition has been challenging for the Seminole newcomers, but the returnees have helped in adjusting to the collegiate level of play. After finishing runner-up in 2002 the Seminole volleyball team has their eye set on an ACC championship this season.
“The team is working very hard and we have a lot of talented girls on this team,” said senior setter Jennifer Anderson. “My goal as a senior is to win an ACC championship and advance to the sweet 16.”
FSU will kick off the 2003 regular season at home in the FSU Invitational on Friday, August 29th. The Seminoles will take on Florida Atlantic in their first match of the day at 12:30 p.m. and will face Kansas State at 7:30 p.m. that same evening. On Saturday, August 30th, Florida State will take on the Michigan Wolverines at 6:00 p.m.
