TALLAHASSEE, Fla. – The Florida State volleyball team (14-7, 2-4),
fresh off a 3-0 win over FAMU on Wednesday, will host ACC-foes Georgia Tech
and Clemson this weekend at Tully Gym.


Junior middle hitter Norisha Campbell continues to pace the Lady
Seminoles as she leads the squad in hitting at .356, kills with 292 and
blocks with 85. Freshman setter Jen Anderson, who has been suffering from
a stress fracture, has been cleared to play and is expected back in the
line up this weekend.


“This weekend’s matches are obviously very important,” FSU Head
Coach Dr. Cecile Reynaud said. “Every ACC team is very competitive and home
ACC matches are very crucial. You’ve got to get wins at home.”


The Yellow Jackets will visit Tully Gym on Friday, October 13th at
7 p.m. Georgia Tech is 15-4 overall and 6-1 in the ACC and is on a
six-match winning streak. Winners of 10 of their last 12 matches, the
Yellow Jackets are led by junior middle blocker Kyleen Bell, who is hitting
.374 on the season. Georgia Tech leads the all-time series with Florida
State, 14-4.


FSU will face Clemson at 1 p.m., on Sunday, October 15th. The
Tigers are 8-11 on the year and 3-4 in league action. The defending ACC
champions opened the season with three straight road losses and dropped six
of their first seven contests. Since September 15th, Clemson is 7-5. The
Tigers are led by freshman middle hitter Marija Zoric, who is hitting .329.
FSU holds a 13-10 all-time series advantage over Clemson.
