TALLAHASSEE, Fla.- Florida State women’s swimming and diving senior Hannah Wilson was named to the 2013 Homecoming Court. The Tupelo, Miss. native is one of six candidates up for Homecoming Princess and will be recognized during halftime against Syracuse on Nov. 16.
“This is amazing honor,” Wilson said. “I’m blessed to be a part of such a great team that I wouldn’t trade for the world. I’m very excited to represent FSU athletics in this capacity.”

She also received the Strength and Conditioning Award in 2012 and 2013 as well as the Coaches’ Award – an honor that is given to the most well-rounded athlete on the team.
Aside from her talents in the pool, Wilson is valued for her leadership role as she was selected to be the team’s captain for the 2012-13 season.
