TALLAHASSEE, Fla. -- Florida State outside hitter LaToya Presberry captured Atlantic Coast Conference Player of the Week honors and fellow Lady Seminole Kate Hemlepp garnered the ACC Rookie of the Week award following stellar performances in FSU's three victories over the weekend.

In her first action as a Lady Seminole, Hemlepp tallied a .412 hitting percentage on 25 kills to earn all-tournament team honors in the Michigan Challenge. The 5'11" freshman from Boca Raton, Florida, finished with a .533 hitting percentage and 9 kills in Florida State's three-game sweep of Montana.
