Volleyball to Host Garnet and Gold Match on Aug. 19

TALLAHASSEE, Fla. – The Florida State volleyball team will host its annual Garnet and Gold match on Friday, Aug. 19 at 6 p.m. inside Tully Gym. Admission will be free and the doors will open at 5 p.m.

The Seminoles are coming off a 20-10 season in 2021 where they picked up their first win in the NCAA Tournament since 2016. Head Coach Chris Poole is entering his 15th season as the leader of the Seminole. Poole boasts a 326-105 (.756) record and has led the Seminoles to the NCAA Tournament in 12 of the past 13 years. Poole added a new face to his staff, as Lindsay Allman joined the Seminoles as an Associate Head Coach after a recent head coaching stint at Indiana State.

The Seminoles will have an experienced core for the 2022 season with First-Team All-ACC and AVCA All-American Emma Clothier leading the show. Clothier led the team in kills (287) and aces (32) last season and was second on the team in blocks (92). The Noles also return Khori Louis, Emery Dupes and Audrey Koenig who were each named to the ACC All-Freshman team last season. In total, nine athletes from last year’s NCAA Tournament team will return for the 2022 season.

The Seminoles will begin practice on Tuesday, Aug. 9 in preparation for their first match on Aug. 26 against Illinois State in Cincinnati, Ohio.
