TALLAHASSEE, Fla. - Senior outside hitter Radka Dimitrova (Sofia, Bulgaria) had a team-best eight kills, but it was not enough to stem the FSU attack in a 3-0 loss (12-30, 28-30, 12-30) to the host Seminoles in the opening match of the FSU Classic Friday afternoon at Tully Gymnasium. Freshman Kerstin Erickson (St. Charles, Ill.) added six kills for JU, while fellow freshman Erin Hickman (San Antonio, Texas) notched 20 assists. The Dolphins play Eastern Kentucky later today at 6:00 p.m.
Kristen Rust led Florida State (6-4) with 17 kills, while hitting .500 and Aisha Carr tallied 11 kills as FSU hit .434 as a team.
The host Seminoles face the Miami Hurricanes at 8:00 p.m. tonight. The FSU Classic continues Saturday when JU takes on Miami at 10:00 a.m., while FSU battles Eastern Kentucky at 12:00 p.m. in the tournament finale.
