TALLAHASSEE, Fla. –
The 2000 soccer season was a break through campaign for the Seminole soccer program. The team went to its first-ever NCAA Tournament and advanced to the Sweet 16. The 2000 Seminoles beat five ranked opponents, got their first All-American and set 46 team and individual records and program firsts. It was hard to imagine how this year’s squad could top that but they did.
Despite falling one goal shy of back-to-back Sweet 16 appearances, the 2001 Florida State soccer team established 69 more program records and firsts on its way to the most successful regular season and ACC Tournament run in program history. The 2001 squad posted the most wins in team history (15), the best regular season in team history (13-6), its first-ever undefeated home season (8-0-0) and made its first-ever appearance in the ACC Championship game. Florida State finished the season ranked in all five college soccer polls, had its best ACC campaign ever (third place) and placed four players on either All-American or freshman All-American teams.
Over the last two seasons under head coach Patrick Baker, FSU has now totaled 115 records and program firsts. All 69 of FSU’s 2001 records are listed below.
