TALLAHASSEE, Fla. – The Florida State volleyball team remained perfect(14-0) in the series with crosstown-rival Florida A&M with a three-game
sweep of the Rattlerettes this evening at Tully Gymnasium. FSU improves to 13-7 overall with its 15-2, 15-6, 15-1 victory over FAMU, who falls to 6-10
on the year.

“We always enjoy playing Florida A&M and we haven’t played them in a few years,” FSU head coach Dr. Cecile Reynaud said. “It’s fun for the community and for the team since some of the players have been to camp
together.”

Florida State committed just nine errors through the three games on its way to a .487 team hitting performance. Junior middle hitter Aisha Thornton continued her dominance at the net with 14 kills on 17 attempts with just two errors. She hit a strong .706 for the evening and contributed three block assists. Sophomore outside hitter Jennifer Werrick also tallied double digit kills with 11 on her way to a .348 hitting night.

Florida A&M’s junior middle blocker Reneeka Gause led the way with eight kills.

The Lady Seminoles will host Virginia and Maryland this weekend in ACC competition. The Cavaliers invade Tully Gymnasium at 7 p.m. on Friday, Oct. 16th while the Terrapins visit on Sunday, Oct. 18th at 1 p.m.
