The NJCAA #17/FCSAA #4 Santa Fe Saints (13-2, 2-0 MFC) kept the momentum rolling on Thursday night in Gainesville, defeating Florida State College-Jacksonville 3-1 in commanding fashion.
Santa Fe jumped out in the first set and controlled the action, finishing strong for a 25-14 victory. The second set was a different story as the Blue Wave turned the tide with a strong 25-20 win to knot it up at one set apiece.
From there it was all Santa Fe. Ruth Harrington and Savannah Young led the attack as the Saints cruised to a 25-13 set four victory, and then took the wind completely out of the FSC-J (9-9, 1-1 MFC) sails with a 25-11 set four win to clinch the match.
Farah Rajaee started the fourth set with 12 straight service points, setting a Santa Fe record. SF led 16-1 at one point and cruised to the win from there.
