FSU Volleyball Falls at Georgia Tech
ATLANTA, Ga. -- Despite match-high of 19 kills, five service aces and 21 digs by junior Holly Schneider, the Florida State volleyball team fell to 18-5 overall and 5-4 in the Atlantic Coast Conference with a 13-15, 15-8, 9-15, 7-15 loss to Georgia Tech this evening. With the four-set victory, the Yellow Jackets improve to 12-13 and 5-5 in league play.
Georgia Tech outblocked the Lady Seminoles 20-9 and outhit the Tribe .251 to .146. Aside from Schneider, freshman Jennifer Werrick and sophomore Aisha Thornton both tallied double-digit kills with 15 and 10, respectively. In her first match back since suffering a broken finger on Oct. 3rd, setter Fiona Bolten recorded 48 assists and 14 digs. The Yellow Jackets were led by Carla Gartner's .393 hitting performance off of 13 kills and 17 digs.
"We just couldn't get in a rhythm tonight," FSU head coach Cecile Reynaud said. "Georgia Tech played very well. They were coming off of a five-game win over North Carolina last night. They outblocked us, served very well and it was senior night and those three players had an exception night."
The Tribe will play at Clemson in a 3 p.m. match tomorrow.
