GREENSBORO, N.C. – Florida State senior volleyball player Jordana Price has been named the Atlantic Coast Conference Player of the Week, conference officials announced Monday afternoon.
Price, a middle blocker from Mountain Home, Idaho, helped propel the Seminoles (15-2, 6-1 ACC) into first place in the conference with a pair of victories over Wake Forest and Duke this past weekend.
Twenty-four hours after she posted 11 kills in FSU’s sweep of the Demon Deacons, Price’s career-high 19 kills and season-best seven blocks guided the ’Noles past the Blue Devils in five sets. The victory ended the Seminoles’ 12-match losing streak to Duke and marked the first victory in Durham, N.C. for the program since the 1998 season.
“Jordana played outstanding this weekend and continues to give us great effort every play she is on the court,” FSU head coach Chris Poole said. “Jordana has a great mind for the game and really works to prepare herself for each opponent.”
Through 17 games this year, Price currently ranks first on the team with 81 total blocks and third with 147 total kills. Her .377 hitting percentage is second among Seminoles with at least 10 total attacks.
In the league, Price currently ranks fourth with a .377 hitting and second with 1.27 blocks per set. She is also currently on a four-match streak with at least 10 kills and a .500 or better hitting percentage and has hit .350 or better in eight matches in a row.
Florida State is on the road this week as they play at Maryland and Boston College on Friday and Sunday. The match against the Terrapins is set for 5:30 p.m. and the showdown with the Eagles begins at 1 p.m.
