Thanks to a first round bye, the Florida State volleyball team took time out on Thursday to tour historic sites in Charlottesville, Va. The Seminoles ran through a short practice Thursday morning from 9:45 – 10:30 a.m. at Memorial Court before lunching at Michie’s Tavern and taking a trip to the Monticello. At Michie’s Tavern, the entire team was served a first-class home-style meal of chicken fried steak and mashed potatoes by waiters dressed in historic pilgrimage clothing.
After lunch, the Seminoles ventured on to the Michie’s Country Store and players like Summer Weissing and Ashley Meyer dressed in early-century American costumes and other Seminoles sported old hats and bonnets. Head coach Todd Kress knows that team work off the court is just as important as on the court, and there is no doubt all the players left the Tavern with memories that will last a lifetime.
Florida State finished the afternoon by watching a match that found Clemson defeating Virginia Tech in five games before returning to the hotel to watch game film.
The team will take on North Carolina at 1:30 p.m. Friday afternoon in the second round of the ACC Championship.
