TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (Seminoles.com) – Florida State Volleyball has announced the addition of Tallahassee native and Chiles High School product Addi Hultquist to its 2021 roster.
“We are excited that Addi is joining our program,” FSU Head Coach Chris Poole said. “As a local player, Addi has attended our camps for many years and we have watched her grow as a player in both high school and club. She will be a complete student athlete for our program as family, academics and volleyball are very important to her and qualities that are important to our coaching staff.
“We are excited to add additional ball control to our roster and Addi will help raise the level of passing in our gym.”
Hultquist was a standout libero in high school who emerged as one of the top players from the Tallahassee area while at Chiles. She was a two-time captain in her junior and senior years and was named the team’s MVP in 2019. She begins her Florida State career as an incoming freshman in 2021.
The daughter of current Florida State Men’s Tennis Head Coach Dwayne Hultquist, Addi was an AVCA All-Region performer as a senior in 2020, and earned a spot on the AVCA Under Armour All-America Watch List heading into her senior year. She has the second-most digs recorded in Chiles High School history.
In her senior season, Hultquist averaged 5.2 digs per set and totaled 146 digs in 28 sets played. She added 15 assists as on the year at Chiles. Her 18.3 digs per match as a senior easily led her high school squad.
As a junior and prior to the COVID-19 pandemic, Hultquist helped Chiles to a 20-9 overall record and a Top-30 rank in the state of Florida. She averaged 4.3 digs per set, 15.4 digs per match and totaled 448 digs for the Timberwolves.
Hultquist joins a Top-15 recruiting class in 2021 which already includes three early enrollees in fellow Tallahassee native and middle blocker Khori Louis, outside hitter Audrey Koenig (Wesley Chapel, Fla.) and setter Ava Pitchford (Norcross, Ga.). The other members joining the program in the summer include libero Emery Dupes (Marietta, Ga.) and middle blocker Skye Ekes (Sarasota, Fla.).
