TALLAHASSEE, Fla. –
The Florida State women’s tennis team will open dual-match play this weekend as they host Florida A&M and Stetson University. The Florida A&M Rattlers will visit the Scott Speicher Tennis Center Saturday, January 18th, at noon to take on Florida State. The Seminoles will host the Hatters of Stetson at noon on Sunday.
Cross-town rival Florida A&M will travel to the campus of Florida State University to take on the women’s tennis team for just the fifth time in school history. In the four previous meetings, the Seminoles have come out victorious. Last season, the Seminoles defeated the Rattlers by a score of 6-1.
