Weekly Recap: Soccer is 10-0; Golf, Swim and Dive Begin Their Seasons

Back in full swing for the fall!

This week, FSU athletics was back in full swing with soccer, volleyball, and football continuing their season, while golf and swim and dive began theirs.

Gold for Swim and Dive

The FSU swimming and diving team was back at the Morcom Aquatics Centre for their annual Garnet and Gold meet to begin their season. The Noles were split up into two teams and competed against each other in various races. This year team Gold took the win, but it was exciting for the sport to be back competing.

Soccer stays undefeated

Soccer continued their start in the ACC with a win at home and on the road this week. On Thursday night, they had an incredible game against Pitt, beating them 5-0 at the Plex. There were goals from Gianna Mitchell, Kristina Lynch, Clara Robbins, and Maria Alagoa.

The Noles were back on the road for Sunday’s game against Louisville. After the first half, there were still no goals, but then the team pounced, scoring 3 goals in 12 minutes! The goal scorers were Beata Olsson, Jody Brown, and Jenna Nighswonger. This win extends their record to 10-0 this season.

Volleyball begins ACC play on the road

The Noles were on the road for both games this week, starting their ACC games. First up was Notre Dame, which was tightly contested, but the Noles came out on top. We took the first set 25-21, the Irish evened it up in the second 24-26, but we closed out the next two 25-16, 25-22 to win in 4 sets. The Noles were back on the court again on Sunday against number 5 ranked Louisville. Unfortunately, the Cardinals were too strong on the day and won in straight sets.

Football almost made a comeback

Football was back in the Doak on Saturday afternoon against Louisville. The Noles had a slow start, but turned things around after the first half. They came out firing with a 75 yard touchdown run by Corbin making the score 20-31. The Noles didn’t let Louisville increase their lead at all in the rest of the game, and had chances to come back in the 4th quarter. Fitzgerald scored the final 3 points from a 45 yard kick, making the score 23-31.
