TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (WTXL) - The 2014 season has already been a record-setting year for Florida State volleyball. Sunday's match against Notre Dame just continued that trend.

The No. 6 Seminoles (that ranking: already a program best) knocked off the Irish in straight sets (34-32, 25-22, 25-19), pushing their record to 13-0. Those 13 wins in a row are the most in school history to start a season.

Junior outside hitter Nicole Walch led the FSU attack with 13 kills while adding 10 digs. Sophomore middle blocker Sarah Burrington had eight kills, five block assists, and one solo block.

"We always have someone that is relentless for every point," Burrington said. "Even if it changes there is always someone ready to step up. It's the element to our team that helps us win."

"We've recognized that if we want to go deep into the NCAA Tournament we've got to be more consistent and more efficient," Noles' head coach Chris Poole said. "We need to play at the highest level that we can so at the end of the year we're above that level."

Florida State will hope to extend their best start in program history in Atlanta Friday in a contest against Georgia Tech.
