TALLAHASSEE, Fla. - The Florida State volleyball team extends its winning streak on the road to three after defeating Miami for the second time this season 3-1 (30-28, 30-24, 25-30, 30-23). The win in Coral Gables, Fla., makes history for the program, as it is the time the Seminoles have won three consecutive conference matches away from Tallahassee since joining the ACC in 1991.
Florida State advances to 9-11 this season and is again at .500 in the ACC with a 6-6 record. Miami's overall record is now 9-12 and 3-9 in the conference. The Hurricanes have yet to win a home match against an ACC opponent this season.
"I'm very proud of the way the team was able to take control of the match after being down in the first two games," head coach Todd Kress said.
"We made plays when we had to down the stretch in all three games we won. I thought the set distribution was very good tonight. I thought we distributed the ball equally across the net."
The last meeting between these teams resulted in a 3-0 sweep for the Florida State, but Miami wouldn't go down without a fight on its home court. The final game of the night showcased a united Seminole team led by sophomore Brianna Barry who had a total of seven kills in game four and scored three back-to-back kills to secure the match for Florida State.
