Gainesville, FL – The Santa Fe Saints were locked in on Thursday night in their Panhandle Conference opener, defeating Pensacola State College in four sets.

Santa Fe pulled away in each of the first two sets, winning 25-17 and then a convincing 25-13.  Pensacola (3-4, 0-1 PC) didn't give in and forced a fourth set with a 25-16 set three victory.  Midway through the fourth set the Saints regained their footing and pulled away down the stretch for a 25-18 win, securing a big home conference win.

Leah Wilcox was a force at the net, collecting a game high 13 kills.  Hannah Rodriguez had one of her best collegiate games, serving eight straight points in set one, and accumulated 17 digs.
