TALLAHASSEE, Fla. – Seminoles fans, the wait is over! With the summer winding down, it can only mean one thing…the start of the 2010 fall season is finally here. On Wednesday, August 4 beginning at 9 a.m., the Florida State Women’s Soccer team will hit the field for its first official practice at the Seminole Soccer Complex.

Entering his sixth year as head coach of the Seminole soccer program, Mark Krikorian welcomes 14 letterwinners including 10 starters from last year’s squad that captured the ACC regular season title for the first time in school history, while advancing to the NCAA Quarterfinals.

A total of 27 student-athletes, including 11 newcomers, make up this year’s team which is in search of their fifth College Cup appearance in the last eight years.

The Seminoles will get their first taste of live action when they square-off against Georgia in a preseason scrimmage at the Seminole Soccer Complex on Friday, August 13 at 4:00 p.m.

The quest for the school’s first national championship begins in Pullman, Wash., on Friday, August 20 as the Seminoles will face Washington State in the season opener. The Seminoles will then face Gonzaga two days later on the second day of the Washington State Tournament. FSU returns to Tallahassee for its home opener on Sunday, August 29 at 2:00 p.m., as the Seminoles host Stetson.
