? FSU continued its three-a-day workouts Friday. The early conditioning session featured 440-yard runs and head coach Patrick Baker was pleased with the results. The team then moved over to the practice field for the first time in 2001 where Jenny Garcia and junior forward Cindy Schofield each recorded two goals during team competition drills. Saturday will be the last day of three-a-days before the team takes the day off Sunday. The Seminoles will cut back to two-a-day practices next week in preparation for their upcoming preseason game with the Georgia Bulldogs.
REGULAR SEASON: The 2001 regular season opens August 31 at 7:00 p.m. at the Seminole Soccer Complex when FSU takes on George Mason University. The match is part of the Seminole Soccer Tournament and also features the University of Miami and Loyola (Md) College.
Quotes from Friday’s Practice
“This has been really hard. The team has been very competitive and everyone is giving her all everyday out here. I think the level of soccer is higher this year compared to the same point last year. We are all looking forward to facing Georgia because it will be a measuring point for us. It is when we will be able to see where everyone fits in and how our freshmen react to the collegiate level of soccer.”
Senior captain Heather Dyche
“I thought Summer Corum and Jenny Garcia really stood out today and I was pleased by the effort of the entire squad considering how strenuous three-a-days are especially in this heat. We ran 440’s this morning and I was pleasantly surprised by the level of our fitness this morning. We’ll continue with this schedule for just one more day then we will cut back a bit as we get ready to face Georgia.”
Head coach Patrick Baker
