The Florida State Lady Seminoles defeated ACC opponent Virginia today, 3-0 (30-21, 30-26, 30-15). FSU was glad to earn the win against an ACC opponent at home and get back on track with a win. FSU now improves to 3-7 on the season and 2-2 in ACC action, while Virginia falls to 5-6 and 1-3 in conference play.
FSU took game one by a nine point margin, and a hitting percentage of .419 compared to Virginia’s .158. Virginia would begin to make a comeback in the second game of the night, but the Cavaliers would still fall short by four. The Lady Seminoles entered game three determined to win in a shutout and that was just what they did defeating UVA by 15 points and a hitting percentage of .400.
“We need the 3-0 when we can get it,” said head coach Cecile Reynaud. It’s important that we win home matches, especially against ACC opponents. If we show up again like we did this afternoon we could be pretty tough to beat.”
Leading the way for the Tribe was Seminole junior, Alex Sevillano (Clearwater, Fla). Sevillano led with match-highs in digs (14) and in total attacks (31).
Senior standout Norisha Campbell (Universal City, Texas) came through with a team and season-high hitting percentage of .647 while notching 12 kills and 17 attacks.
Sophomore setter Jennifer Anderson has added 45 more set assists to her record placing her fifth in FSU’s Top Ten for Individual Career Set Assists.
The Lady Seminoles will now prepare to face Miami on Tuesday, Oct. 2 at 7:30 p.m. in the friendly confines of Tully Gym. The game will be broadcast on Sunshine Network
