September 26, 1998


CLEMSON, S.C. – The No. 21-ranked Florida State volleyball team fell to
Clemson in five games (5-15, 13-15, 15-6, 17-15, 13-15) this evening in ACC
action played at Jervey Gym on the Clemson University campus. FSU falls to
8-5 and 0-1 in ACC play while Clemson improves to 9-3 overall and 2-0 in
the league.

The Lady Seminoles, who are playing without the services of leading
hitter and blocker Aisha Thornton because of a severe ankle sprain, fell
behind by two games before coming back to dominate game three and take game
four 17-15. The match was forced to a fifth game rally scoring. FSU is
now 1-1 in five-game matches this season.

FSU was led by senior outside hitter Holly Schneider’s .310 hitting
performance on 23 kills, 5 errors and 58 attempts. Schneider also dug 13
balls for her eighth double-double of the season. Sophomore outside hitter
Jennifer Werrick also recorded a double-double, her sixth on the season,
with a career-high 25 kills and 21 digs.

Florida State continues ACC play tomorrow with a 4 p.m. match at Georgia
Tech. The Tribe’s next home match will be on Wednesday, September 30th vs.
Jacksonville at 7 p.m. at Tully Gymnasium.
