Noles Win Five of Six Sets on Saturday

TALLAHASSEE, Fla. – The Florida State indoor volleyball team won five out of its six sets plays on Saturday in a three-team tournament at South Alabama. The Seminoles first defeated South Alabama in straight sets 25-19 and 27-25 before splitting with Alabama, dropping the first 21-15 before taking the second 25-17. FSU closed out the day with a 25-18, 25-22 victory over Southern Mississippi.

“Today was a great day to get game-like experience just a week into team training,” FSU associate head coach Jeff Hulsmeyer said. “We were shown what we need to work on, but I am proud of the effort and attitude of the team today.”

Florida State was led by junior right side hitter Milica Kubura on the attack, who amassed 27 kills on the day. Her classmate, right side hitter Natasha Calkins also contributed 23 kills.

On defense, junior libero Cecilie Woie led with 28 digs, while sophomore setter Brianne Burkert had 18 digs. Freshman defensive specialist Madison Sullivan added 11.

“This is a motivated group,” Hulsmeyer said. “We are looking forward to learning and improving in the coming weeks ahead.”

In addition to Saturday, the Seminoles are also scheduled to head to Gainesville, Fla. to face Florida on March 22 before returning to face UCF at Santa Fe College on March 30 in their spring training session.
