UNF women’s volleyball lost to Florida Gulf Coast University on Friday, Nov. 14 in a 3-0 (25-13, 25-14, 25-18) game. However, UNF is still up in the Atlantic Sun Conference tournament as Kennesaw State lost to Northern Kentucky on the same night.

“Florida Gulf Coast is a very strong team and they played very well tonight. We’ll have to get past this match and make sure we are ready for tomorrow’s match against Stetson,” UNF Head Coach Steve Loeswick said. “There are definitely some areas we can improve upon, but I’m confident our team will come ready to play tomorrow.”

UNF was not able to find the groove in the first two sets, but in the third set the Ospreys gave FGCU a run for their money.

The Ospreys attempted to fight back in this last set and got up to 15-12 with a kill from Morgan Van Alstine, sophomore, but the Eagles kept the score close and eventually won with an eight-point lead.

Van Alstine had seven kills on 12 attacks with no errors. Abby Fesl, sophomore, had 17 assists and Cari Whitmire, senior, had 10 digs.
