FSU Volleyball Takes ACC Player & Rookie of the Week Honors


TALLAHASSEE, Fla. — Florida State outside hitter LaToya Presberry captured
Atlantic Coast Conference Player of the Week honors and fellow Lady
Seminole Kate Hemlepp garnered the ACC Rookie of the Week award following
stellar performances in FSU’s three victories over the weekend.



Presberry, a 5’8″ junior from Detroit, Michigan, averaged 4.2 kills and
4.1 digs per game during the All Sport/Michigan Volleyball Challenge in Ann
Arbor. She added 6 service aces and 8 blocks to earn the MVP award of the
tournament.



In her first action as a Lady Seminole, Hemlepp tallied a .412 hitting
percentage on 25 kills to earn all-tournament team honors in the Michigan
Challenge. The 5’11” freshman from Boca Raton, Florida, finished with a
.533 hitting percentage and 9 kills in Florida State’s three-game sweep of
Montana.



The Lady Seminoles return to action when Georgia Southern visits
Tallahassee and Tully Gymnasium this Wednesday at 7:00 p.m.
