Gainesville, FL – The Santa Fe Volleyball team played two top ranked teams on Saturday and came out with a win against a strong St. Petersburg team after a loss to the hosts College of Central Florida.

"To come out of a weekend going 1-1 against ranked teams is quite an accomplishment for our team," said SF Coach Nick Cheronis.  "We have come a long way since getting swept by St. Pete on opening weekend."

FCSAA #5 CF (11-6) played at a high level in the first match of the day, sweeping the Saints 25-10, 25-16, 25-27.

SF (7-12, 3-1 PC) bounced back in a big way in their second match, defeating FCSAA #3 St. Petersburg College (11-2) in four sets 26-24, 25-22, 20-25, 25-20, handing the Titans just their second loss of the season.

Leah Wilcox and Meagan Irish led the way with 13 kills each against SPC, Sterlong Williamson had 10, and Hannah Rodrigues had 20 digs.

The Saints next match will be on the road Friday, October 13 at Pensacola State at 7:00 p.m. and on Saturday, October 14 at Gulf Coast State at 7:00 p.m.
