A member of the Florida State volleyball team from 1987-90, Maggie Philgence made a name for herself not only at FSU, but at the conference and national levels as well.

Philgence broke five school records during her senior season, including kills (579) and career kills (2110), career kill attempts (4793), kills per game (4.41) and career digs (1185). She earned All-Metro Conference and AVCA All-South Region team honors while leading the Metro Conference in hitting percentage (.330) and kills per game (4.41) throughout her final season.

A powerful hitter, Philgence still ranks among FSU’s Top 10 in 14 statistical categories and remains the FSU leader in career kills and kill attempts, as well as single-season kills. During her four-year career, FSU made appearances in the NCAA Tournament each season.

Upon graduation, Philgence was drafted to the South Team for the Olympic Festival in Los Angeles and helped her team to a gold medal. She went on to play professionally with the international league in France.
