Florida State women’s basketball head coach Sue Semrau has announced that seniors Katelyn Vujas and Trinetta Moore have been chosen by a team vote as team captains for the 2002-03 season.

“It’s the first time that we voted for captains and there was an overwhelming response which showed that those two are looked at as special leaders of our team,” Semrau said. “Katelyn and Trinetta have done a tremendous job in the preseason, and as we’ve gotten into practice, and it is a well-deserved honor for both of them. They’ve both been setting strong examples for who we want to be as a women’s basketball program at Florida State.

“Katelyn has really worked in the weight room to get stronger and she’s making it a personal challenge to take her game to the next level,” Semrau continued. “She’s a prolific scorer for us who has really been working extremely hard on the defensive end. Trinetta has continued to strengthen her knee and will be playing without her brace this year, making her even more agile and mobile.”

Vujas has been a mainstay in the Seminole line up the past two seasons and throughout her career. She averaged 7.5 points and 4.2 rebounds last season while scoring in double figures in eight games.

“It’s an honor that the team picked Trinetta and I to be in this position of leadership and I look forward to the challenge of leading this team to the next level,” Vujas said.

Moore made significant contributions in her first season at FSU and played in all 28 games. Her presence in the middle provides a defensive force for the Seminoles.

“I was really surprised when I found out I was chosen as one of our team captains,” Moore said. “I feel like it is a privilege and I am glad that my teammates look up to me and I accept full responsibility.”

With three top 20-rated recruiting classes in the last five years, Florida State has assembled a talented mix of youth and experience heading into 2002-03. With eight experienced returnees and a highly touted group of newcomers, the Seminoles have numerous offensive weapons and size in the middle.

“I think Trinetta and Katelyn will be great team captains because they’re the total package,” sophomore Genesis Choice said. “On the court to off the court, they’re vocal and they lead us throughout everything.”

The Seminoles’ first contest will be Tuesday, November 12 when Florida State hosts Athletes in Action in exhibition action at 7 p.m. at the Tallahassee-Leon County Civic Center.
