TALLAHASSEE, Fla. — The Florida State women’s volleyball team notched one of its biggest wins of the season Friday night, as they defeated the Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets in four games. The ‘Noles came on strong, winning the opening two games of the match (15-11, 15-5), before dropping the third game (9-15) and wrapping up the road win in the fourth game (15-10). The Lady Seminoles better their record to 20-10 on the season and 8-7 in the conference. Georgia Tech drops to 22-6 overall and 12-3 in the ACC. The Yellow Jackets were 13-1 in their last 14 games, before falling to Florida State.
“Our team played the best match of the year tonight,” FSU head coach Dr. Cecile Reynaud said. “It was a very intense match, and offensively we were very sharp. We definitely like to have that kind of a match towards the end of the season. I would consider this a significant win over a very good Georgia Tech team. They had 1,200 people there, so it was good to see us play well in front of an opposing crowd.”
The Lady Seminoles were led by junior Norisha Campbell. The junior from Universal City, Texas had another strong performance, notching 22 kills and hitting .500 for the night. Erica Bunch also reached the 20-kill plateau, while hitting .340. Senior Jennifer Werrick added 15 kills for the Garnet and Gold, while freshman setter Jennifer Anderson tallied 64 assists and 16 digs. The Seminoles reached an impressive 79 digs as a team, on their way to the four-game match-win.
FSU will be back in action as the squad closes out the 2000 season with a match against the Clemson Tigers in Clemson, S.C. on Saturday night. The match is slated to begin at 6:00 p.m.
