TALLAHASSEE, Fla. – The Florida State women’s volleyball team will look to better its record to 21-10 this weekend, as the squad will travel to Clemson and Georgia Tech in the final weekend of regular-season competition. The Lady Seminoles are currently in fifth-place in the ACC with a 7-7 conference record and a 19-10 record overall. FSU will face Georgia Tech on Friday night (7:00 p.m.) and Clemson on Saturday afternoon (1:00 p.m.).
The Lady Seminoles are led by Norisha Campbell. The junior from Universal, Texas is currently hitting a team-high .348, which currently stands as the eighth-best mark in school history for a single season. Campbell notched a season-percentage of .360 in her freshman season, making her one of only two FSU athletes on the top-10 list twice (Aisha Thornton). Campbell has also poured in 105 blocks to average 0.94 blocks per game. Her 399 kills marks the third category in which she leads the 2000-squad, as she is currently averaging 3.56 kills per game.
Freshman setter Jennifer Anderson has been a strong force on the court since returning from an early season injury. Anderson earned ACC Rookie-of-the-Week honors earlier in the season following strong performances against Virginia and Maryland in an FSU weekend sweep of the two conference foes. Anderson is currently hitting .311 with 725 assists for an average of 12.50 assists per game. The Minier, Ill., native also has 95 digs on the season.
This weekend’s matches will mark the end of senior Jennifer Werrick’s final regular season at Florida State. The Lakeland, Fla., native will still see action in the ACC Tournament, but will close out her final regular season in Clemson, S.C. Werrick has compiled 343 kills this season and 1261 for her career, putting her ninth on the all-time kills list at Florida State. Werrick has also notched 1,022 digs in her four years at FSU, landing her seventh in that category.
After the Lady Seminoles close out their regular season with this weekend’s matches, they will begin preparations for the ACC Tournament to be held the following weekend, hosted by Wake Forest University in Winston-Salem, N.C.
