The Florida State University volleyball team fought another long battle, but had the victory slip out of their hands as the Garnet and Gold dropped their fifth match of the season to South Florida, 29-31, 30-28, 24-30, 24-30. The Lady Seminoles drop to 1-5 on the season while the Bulls go to 5-3.
"South Florida has a strong team," said head coach Cecile Reynaud. "Michelle Collier is an excellent player, although her hitting percentage was not that high she can always be a threat. I think we had good ball control but South Florida just hit better than we did causing us to make a lot of unforced errors which is pretty disappointing."
FSU was led by senior Norisha Campbell, who pounded 21 kills, closing out the night with a .283 hitting percentage. Campbell was joined by Alex Sevillano, who has contributed a great deal to the squad this season. Sevillano notched a triple-double in 14 kills, 45 attacks and 22 digs. Sophomore Jennifer Anderson recorded a double-double this evening with 53 assists on the night while recording 11 digs and two block solos.
The Lady Seminoles will return to action when they travel to South Carolina to face Clemson for their first ACC match-up on Friday Sept 21 at 7:00 p.m.
