TALLAHASSEE, Fla. – (Seminoles.com) The eighth-ranked Florida State indoor volleyball team (24-2, 12-2) returns home for a four-match home stand to close out the 2014 season, starting on Friday when it hosts Boston College (11-14, 6-8) at 7 p.m. before welcoming Syracuse (8-18, 1-13) on Sunday at 1 p.m.
With four matches remaining the Seminoles are in second place in the ACC behind No. 7 North Carolina following a pair of 3-1 losses to Duke and the Tar Heels, however FSU holds the tiebreaker over North Carolina thanks to a 3-0 sweep on Sept. 26 in Tully Gym.
“We knew those were going to be tough matches for us,” FSU head coach Chris Poole said. “They’ve been right behind us all season. Winning streaks are always difficult. It’s fun, but it’s also stressful. I think for the girls now, we need to relax and start playing our volleyball again.”
Florida State holds the series lead over the Eagles, 16-1 following a 3-0 sweep last season. Boston College is in the middle of the pack in the ACC after defeating Syracuse 3-1 last weekend.
On Sunday, the Seminoles and Orange will meet for the third time with FSU holding the 2-0 series edge after a 3-1 win in Syracuse in 2013. Prior to that match, the squads first met in 1992.
“I’m so happy that we’re home after last weekend,” senior setter Sarah Wickstrom said. “We can practice, be here and get all the support from the fans.”
Prior to the match, the Seminoles will honor their seniors, Katie Mosher and Wickstrom.
Both matches will be streamed on ESPN3. For more information on FSU volleyball visit Twitter, Facebook and Instagram.
