Noles Highlight 2016 Season

TALLAHASSEE, Fla. – The Florida State indoor volleyball team celebrated its achievements on Sunday night at the annual awards banquet, which was held in the Varsity Club. “I’m very proud of the team this season,” FSU head coach Chris Poole said. “Every single player started at one point during the year and made huge contributions and Sunday night was a way to celebrate that.” Four Seminoles earned five core value awards, which were voted on by the team.

“We had a lot of different players recognized with awards throughout the year,” Poole said. “These awards highlighted those players that had specifically earned their respect of their teammates.”

Junior libero Cecilie Woie earned a pair of honors, capturing the Maximum Effort and Most Influential.

Senior middle blocker Melanie Keil was awarded the Seminole Warrior honor – which is earned through commitment to working hard every day to be in the best fitness possible. Her classmate outside hitter Katie Horton was selected for the Ultra-Competitive award.

Senior co-captain setter Hailey Luke was awarded the Total Commitment and junior co-captain and right-side hitter Milica Kubura was given the Complete Trust honor.

The Seminoles finished the 2016 season with a record of 26-6, after an appearance in in the NCAA Sweet 16 and a final AVCA ranking of No. 13.

Six student-athletes were also recognized academically for earning a spot on the Dean’s List for the fall of 2016, including Luke, Kubura, Keil, sophomore Brianne Burkert, freshman Stasa Miljevic and freshman Madison Sullivan
