TALLAHASSEE, Fla. — The Florida State Lady Seminole volleyball team hit
.405 as a team on its way to a 15-12, 15-2, 15-10 victory over the Maryland
Terrapins this afternoon at Tully Gymnasium. With the win, FSU improves to
15-7 overall and into a five-way tie for second place in the Atlantic Coast
Conference with a 5-3 league record. Maryland falls to 8-10 overall and 2-6
in the ACC.
Four players tallied double digit kills for Florida State, led by Holly
Schneider’s match-high 15 kills and 10 digs. FSU outside hitter Jennifer
Werrick added 13 kills while LaToya Washington and Aisha Thornton each
contributed 12. Washington led all players in hitting with a .476
performance. Maryland’s Beth Murphy led the Terrapins with 14 kills and 11
The win was FSU’s first win over Maryland since the 1994 ACC Tournament.
“It was certainly exciting to beat Maryland for the first time since
1994,” FSU Head Coach Cecile Reynaud said. “It was the first time this
senior class has beaten them. We were obviously very pleased with the win.
I think it was also very good that we were able to go through the weekend
and not lose any games. With a five-way tie for second place right now, it
may go down to games, so this could be very critical down the line.”
Florida State will continue ACC action on the road this weekend. The
Lady Seminoles will face Duke on Friday, Oct. 23rd at 7:30 p.m. and Wake
Forest on Saturday, Oct. 24th at 7 p.m.
