Florida State University (L; 0-7)
The Noles dominated the Eagles 7-0, and it wasn’t pretty. The Noles started off strong and showing no mercy for the Eagles, sweeping doubles play on the court, and continuing that energy with singles play. FSU began singles play by winning three of six matches in straight sets. Although junior Eagle Emilia Bujan, along with freshman Eagle Charlotte Van Diemen, put up a fight and won some sets in the final matches, it wasn’t enough to beat the Noles who took the match 7-0.

Starting off winning in singles, the Eagles momentum was halted by doubles play as FAU took the match 4-0.

Coming off of winning doubles, FAU took that motivation and swept all singles matches in straight sets, taking the match 4-0.
