FSN South's ACC ALL ACCESS spotlights the Atlantic Coast Conference, with behind-the-scenes, real-life experiences of ACC student-athletes and coaches in a live, weekly, half-hour show.
Tuesday's ALL ACCESS (5/23 at 6:30 p.m.) will look ahead to the 2006 ACC Baseball Tournament, which will be played at The Baseball Grounds of Jacksonville (Fla.), 5/24-28. With regular season conference play concluding this weekend, ALL ACCESS will look at which teams are in need of a strong finish to bolster their seedings in the tournament.
ALL ACCESS reporter Jenn Hildreth will profile Florida State's Janson sister pole vaulters - Lacy, Brittany and Kristin. Lacy, a senior, is the '03 ACC indoor champion and a four-time All-American. Kristin, a junior, and Brittany, a freshman, have made valuable contributions to the FSU squad. Hildreth spends time with the three sisters, to learn how the Jansons have made this exciting field event a family affair.
ALL-ACCESS will highlight Virginia lacrosse player Ben Rubeor, who this season scored 26 goals and had 18 assists in helping the Cavaliers claim the ACC championship. The sophomore from Towson, Md., overcame injuries sustained in a high school car accident and is a stronger competitor because of his trials. ALL ACCESS will look at Rubeor's journey to success in Charlottesville.
