Awards
Elected into the FSU Hall of Fame in 2010
Karyn Palgut was one of the finest athletes in Florida State history, earning letters in volleyball, basketball and softball from 1982-86 and eventually competing in two Olympic Games.

A native of Cleveland, Ohio, Palgut came to FSU in 1981 on a volleyball scholarship after earning all-state honors in high school in all three sports. She would prove she could do that at the highest level over her collegiate career becoming one of the Seminoles' all-time greats in volleyball. She earned All-Metro Conference honors in 1982, 83 and '84. She earned Metro Conference Most Valuable Player honors as a sophomore and junior and was FSU's team captain as a senior in 1984. Her name is still peppered throughout the FSU record books including a sixth place all-time listing for career matches with 153 and seventh place listing in career service aces with 132. Palgut was also selected to the Commissioner's List for Academic Excellence during the 1984-85 school year.

Palgut's amazing athletic skills continued after her FSU career when she began competing in team handball and represented the United States in two Olympic Games finishing seventh in Seoul, Korea in 1988 and sixth in Barcelona, Spain in 1992.
