Coming off their recent number nine national ranking the Santa Fe Saints Volleyball team suffered their first setback of the season, falling to St. Petersburg College 3-0 at a tri-match held in Bradenton Saturday afternoon.
The Lady Titans won by scores of 25-23, 25-12, 25-17 to improve to 4-1 on the season. Grace Daugherty led the Saints with six kills and posted a .333 hitting percentage.
In their second match of the day the Saints disposed of the State College of Florida in three, 25-20, 25-14, 25-17. Brooke Ruud led the Saints with seven kills and six blocks finishing with a .556 hitting percentage.
The first match was a wakeup call for us," said Head Coach Nick Cheronis. "We now know how far we are from our season's goals. However, I credit the team for shaking that one off and playing great in the second match."
The Saints (11-1) will travel to Leesburg next Saturday for another tri-match, playing Lake Sumter State College at 10:00 AM and Indian River State College at 12 noon.
