CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. – The Virginia volleyball team fell 3-0 (27-25, 25-22, 25-16) to No. 12 Florida State on Friday night in Memorial Gymnasium.
“I thought we played really hard and scrambled to make some tough plays tonight against a good team,” head coach Dennis Hohenshelt said. “They are a little bit more physical at times and that caught up to us. I am proud of their effort and we are going to come back and be ready to play tomorrow night.”
Virginia (4-17, 1-8 ACC) led Florida State (16-3, 9-1 ACC) in kills (41-38) and digs (56-48), but the Seminoles had the edge in hitting percentage (.181-.124), blocks (9-6) and service aces (5-2).
Seniors Haley Kole (Tallahasee, Fla.) and Jasmine Burton (West Hills, Calif.) led the Cavaliers with 11 kills apiece. Kole recorded her second-straight double-double with 12 digs. Freshman Jennifer Wineholt guided the UVA offense with 36 assists.
After Florida State went up 5-1 in the first set, Virginia used a 3-0 run to cut it to 5-4. The Seminoles stretched their lead out to 11-7 when UVA mounted a 6-0 run to take a 12-11 lead. The set remained close with four ties before Florida State scored two-straight to take a 19-17 lead. The Cavaliers came back to tie it up at 21-21 and then took the lead on a kill by Burton. Back-to-back kills by Kole gave UVA a 24-22 advantage, but Florida State knotted the set at 24-24 and went on to take the first set 27-25.
In the second set, the Cavaliers were down 16-11 when they put together a 5-0 run that included kills by Kole and sophomore Harley Sebastian (Atlanta, Ga.) along with blocks for Wineholt and Young to tie it up at 16-16. The Seminoles struck back with a 5-0 run, but UVA stayed close and fought to cut the lead to one, 23-22, after a kill by Burton. FSU held on to win the second set 25-22 and lead 2-0 at the break.
Virginia took a 4-2 lead after kills by Kole, Burton, Young and Wineholt to open the third set. Florida State then took the lead 6-4 with a 4-0 run. The Seminoles stayed in control to take the third set 25-16 and secure the match.
Virginia will be back in action Saturday when it hosts Miami and 7 p.m. in Memorial Gymnasium.
