TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (seminoles.com) – A dominant offensive performance by the Florida State University volleyball team propelled it to a 3-0 (25-17, 25-16, 25-14) win over Florida A&M on Saturday afternoon at the Al Lawson Center.
The victory gives the Seminoles (21-10, 12-8) a 9-2 nonconference record in the regular season. FSU was led once again by junior outside hitter Visnja Djurdjevic, who tallied 14 kills, a .480 hitting percentage and five digs.
“We were pretty strong today,” head coach Chris Poole said. “We were able to rest some players so we can be healthy for the NCAA Tournament. Our team looked sharp offensively and was able to rebound from a disappointing loss yesterday.”
FSU recorded a .434 hitting percentage, its highest this season. Duygu Duzceler had 19 assists, while Patricia Figueiredo added 15. Senior Jenna Romanelli had a team-best nine assists, while Duzceler recorded seven. The Seminoles also had 11 blocks, led by Freeman’s six.
The Seminoles will find out their postseason positioning on Sunday afternoon as the NCAA Selection Show airs on ESPNews beginning at 3 p.m. FSU is looking to make back-to-back postseason appearances since 1997-98.
