Baylor Volleyball Falls Short to No. 13 Florida State in Five

Baylor volleyball (4-4) pushed No. 13 Florida State (4-1) to the limit, falling to the Seminoles, 25-18, 15-25, 13-25, 25-19, 13-15.

The Bears jumped to a strong start, leading wire-to-wire in the first frame to roll to a comfortable 25-18 set win.

In sets two and three, the Seminoles took over, rolling to 25-15 and 25-13 marks to take a 2-1 match lead.

In the fourth, BU closed on a 6-1 run to clinch the set and force the decisive fifth frame.

In the fifth, neither squad was able to get ahead by more than a point, with the match tied at 8-8.

Back-to-back FSU attack errors gave the Bears a 10-8 lead, but the Seminoles responded with a 4-0 run to go up by two at 12-10.

BU clawed back, using a kill from Ashley Fritcher and a setting error on FSU to tie the match at 12-12.

After the Bears lost a video review on a crucial service error call, the Seminoles took a two point lead with a block, forcing a double match point at 14-12.

Katie Staiger came through with a kill to save the first, but another FSU block would end the match.

HIGHLIGHTS

Katie Staiger notched her fourth double-double of the season and second-straight, leading with a match-high and career-high-tying 28 kills and 11 digs.

Morgan Reed finished with a match-high 41 assists.

Jana Brusek led both squads with 16 digs.

STAT OF THE DAY

57 – the number of kills by Baylor hitters, outhitting the FSU side, 57-53. The Bears were forced into more attack errors (24-21), serving errors (12-4), and blocking errors (3-0).
