The Florida State volleyball team, coaches, staff and family recently celebrated the most successful season in program history with a banquet.
In addition to the sharing of good times and good stories recounting a year in which FSU earned its first-ever regular-season conference championship and made it to the Elite 8 for the first time, three student-athletes were honored.
Senior Jordana Price was the recipient of the Most Influential Player award. Price, who starred as a middle blocker, was chosen for the honor because of her on-the-court leadership, off-the-court character and responsibility, academics and community service.
Head coach Chris Poole says this award is given to the player that “best represents our volleyball team as a whole.”
Junior Taylor Wilson was granted the Academic Award. The talented defensive specialist earned the highest GPA on the team for the 2009 school year.
Senior Brianna Barry garnered the Community Service Award. One of the greatest players in FSU history and the first-ever Seminole to win volleyball Atlantic Coast Conference Player of the Year honors, Barry spent the most hours volunteering and showed the greatest effort to making a difference in the community. Barry was also recently honored as the 2009 ACC Scholar-Athlete of the Year.
