TALLAHASSEE, Fla. – Ashley Neff can add one more accolade to her decorated Seminole career after she was named to Volleyball Magazine’s All-American Third Team following the 2013 season.
“I'm very honored with this award,” Neff said “I've really enjoyed my four years with the Florida State volleyball program and would like to thank all of my teammates and coaches that have helped to make me a better player.”
Neff was one of nine middle blockers recognized on three teams in the January issue of the publication.
In her final season in the Garnet and Gold, Neff became the first player in ACC history to lead the conference in blocking in three-straight seasons (1.39 per set). The Kennesaw, Ga. native closed out her career at the top of a pair of FSU lists, ranking second in career block assists (525) and third in career total blocks (612).
Neff accounted for 225 kills while hitting .362 percent in addition to amassing 174 total blocks in 2013. For her performance, she was named as All-ACC First Team before capturing All-American honorable mention accolades following the season.
“I'm very proud of what Ashley accomplished during her four years at Florida State,” head coach Chris Poole said. “She is an exceptional athlete and worked very hard to make herself into an exceptional volleyball player. Through her effort and determination she accomplished a lot during her career.”
