Florida State Tops UVa in Three Games
CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. - Susan Hawks had 17 kills and Kate Hemlepp chipped in with 16 of her own to lead Florida State to a 3-1 win over Virginia in a match played at Memorial Gymnasium. The victory was Florida State's fourth straight conference win and improved their record to 16-2 overall and 4-1 in the Atlantic Coast Conference. The loss drops Virginia to 12-8 overall and 1-3 in the ACC.
Virginia was led by Shannon Wahlers (Phoenix, Ariz./Independence) and Jessica Parsons (Green Oaks, Ill./Libertyville). Each finished with 11 kills for the Cavaliers. Mary Frances Scott (Phoenix, Ariz./Xavier College Prep) quarterbacked a balanced Cavalier attack and tallied 39 assists.
After dropping the first game, Virginia rebounded to steal Game Two by finishing off 14 kills while committing just three errors. UVa posted an impressive .478 hitting percentage in the second game, but managed to hit just .066 over the third and fourth games as FSU rallied to win.
The loss was the third straight conference loss for the Cavaliers.
Kensy Zulueta posted 57 assists, while Aisha Thornton and Laura Arnold had 10 kills each for the Seminoles.
Virginia returns to action tomorrow evening with a 7:00 pm match against conference-foe Wake Forest. Then on Sunday afternoon, preseason ACC favorite Duke comes to Memorial Gym for a 4:00 pm match. Admission to both matches is free.
