October 2, 2017 – The Santa Fe Saints played a pair of games Saturday in Gainesville, splitting the two matches.
SF started the day with a win against South Florida State College (25-12, 16-25, 25-13, 27-25). Brooke Ruud led the way with 14 kills and Maggie Mathews had 10. Later that afternoon SF (6-11, 3-1 PHC) ran up against FCSAA fifth ranked Polk State College and played the Eagles tough but fell in three sets 23-25, 23-25, 20-25.
“As is always the case, you learn more from a loss than from a win,” said SF Coach Nick Cheronis. “If we learn from this weekend we have a chance to be pretty special.”
Friday, SF suffered their first conference loss of the season, losing to Florida State College at Jacksonville 3-(25-23, 15-25, 17-25, 25-12, 5-15).
The Saints will be off until Saturday, Oct. 7, when they travel to Ocala for a pair of games at the College of Central Florida.
