Florida State took on Boston College the next day, March 26, 2006 with the same 6-1 decision over the Eagles in Chestnut Hill, MA.

Last weekend, the No. 31 Florida State men’s tennis team fought back in singles to upset the No. 17 Rice Owls 5-2. After a doubles point loss and a brief rain delay, the Seminoles improved the team’s overall season record to 9-5. This is the Seminoles eleventh straight win at the Scott Speicher Tennis Center after charging back to win five out of six singles matches.
