Florida State women’s cross country student-athlete Alyson Churchill was named the ACC Women’s Performer of the Week on Tuesday:

Churchill posted another personal best in the 5k at the Covered Bridge Open in Boone, N.C., to win with a time of 16:08.30. It was her second victory this season in as many tries at the Don Kennedy Trails at State Farm.

The Tallahassee native finished 40 seconds ahead of the next runner.

“Aly is just now starting to scratch the surface for who we know she can be as an athlete,” FSU head women’s coach Cody Halsey said. “It’s been really exciting watching her progress. This past weekend was another great step in the right direction for big goals she has in mind. We are really looking ward to the rest of the season with her!”

Churchill becomes the first women’s runner to win two ACC Women’s Performer of the Week honors in the same season since Erin Phelps collected two during 2019.

Florida State volleyball (6-6) swept the UNF Ospreys in Tallahassee on Tuesday:

The Seminoles got off to a slow start trailing the Ospreys 6-2 until a Chris Poole timeout seemed to be just the spark they needed, taking a 12-10 lead shortly thereafter. The Noles went on to outscore the Ospreys 23-15, winning the first set 25-21. Audrey Koenig led the way for the Seminoles recording five kills in the set.

The momentum continued with FSU taking an early second set lead and never looked back, winning 25-15. The set was highlighted with the Noles having 18 total team kills and posting a whopping .467 hitting percentage. FSU played stellar defense holding the Osprey’s to only a .074 hitting percentage.

The third set opened up with a 10-4 Seminoles lead before a North Florida timeout. The Ospreys battled back trailing 18-15, before an ace by Addi Hultquist essentially iced the match for the Noles giving them a 22-16 lead. The Noles went on to win the set 25-19 with a match clinching kill by Maddie Snider.

Florida State finished the match totaling 42 team kills, 37 aces, and a .369 hitting percentage to go along with 37 assists, and 28 digs.

FSU will travel to Blacksburg, Virginia on Friday at 6 p.m. to take on Virginia Tech and begin ACC play.
