Oct. 10, 2000




TALLAHASSEE, Fla. — The Florida State volleyball team will take a
break from Atlantic Coast Conference play when the Lady Seminoles host
crosstown-rival Florida A&M at Tully Gym on Wednesday, October 11th at 7
p.m. FSU is 13-7 on the season while the Rattlerettes are 6-6.

“Playing Florida A&M will be a nice break from playing an ACC
opponent,” FSU Head Coach Dr. Cecile Reynaud said. “We are looking forward
to three matches at home in Tully Gym this week. FAMU is playing quite
well right now and is doing very well in their conference which helps us.”

The Seminoles, led by Norisha Campbell’s .349 hitting percentage,
are coming off a split on the road last weekend. FSU defeated Wake Forest,
3-0, but fell to Duke in five sets on Saturday. Campbell, who also leads
the team in kills (282) and blocks (83), had a career-high 23 kills and
.314 hitting performance vs. the Blue Devils.

FAMU has won five straight matches and is led in hitting by Shante
Haymore (.245). Haymore is also the team leader in kills (162) and service
aces (15).

Florida State is a perfect 16-0 vs. the Rattlerettes, including a
15-5, 15-6, 15-1 win back on September 16th in the Lady Seminole Classic.
Senior Jennifer Werrick had a career-high .636 hitting percentage with
seven kills and not a single error in that match. Alex Sevillano added a
.467 performance while Kristin Frye hit a career-high .571 with nine kills
and one error. The Tribe hit .500 as a team on 31 kills and just three
errors.

The Lady Seminoles will resume conference play on Friday, October
13th vs. Georgia Tech at Tully Gym at 7 p.m. Clemson will visit
Tallahassee on Sunday at 1 p.m. Reynaud will be honored for 25 years at
Florida State prior to the Clemson contest.
