Gainesville, FL – The Santa Fe Saints faced off against one of the best teams in the country on Tuesday night in Winter Haven, falling to NJCAA #4 Polk State College 3-0.
The #16 Saints (0-1) never really got their footing at the outset and lost the first set 25-16. They played much better in the second set before falling 26-24. The third set was all Eagles 25-13 as they wrapped up the straight set win.
"When you are on the road against the #4 ranked team in the nation, you have to play your best volleyball and they have to help you a little," said SF Coach Nick Cheronis. "Unfortunately neither of those things happened tonight."
Santa Fe will get a chance to bounce back on Wednesday in their home opener against Lake Sumter State College at 7:00 p.m.
