The Saints didn’t end the regular season like they would have wanted to, but Coach Nick Cheronis found enough positives to believe SF (15-10) is ready to go for the FCSAA Tournament on November 4-6 in Bradenton.
Miami Dade came out of the gates hot and controlled the pace of the match, winning the first set 25-19. They continued their impressive play in the second set, defeating Santa Fe 25-13. In the third set the Saints played much better, but still fell 25-23.
“We definitely tapped into our energy in the third set but it was a little too late,” said Cheronis. “Hopefully we can carry that momentum over to the FCSAA Tournament.”
The Mid-Florida Conference #3 seed Saints will battle Southern Conference champions Palm Beach State College in the first round of the FCSAA Tournament on November 4 at 1:00 p.m. at the Bradenton Civic Center. Santa Fe defeated the Panthers 3-0 in Gainesville on August 27. Full details and a bracket can be found here: http://thefcsaasports.com/championships/fcsaa_volleyball_tournament
