Perfect Sports Weekend at Florida State - Noles Win 6
FSU teams had a fantastic sports weekend - lots of great home games.
On Friday night - girls volleyball - girls soccer - and girls basketball were all playing at the same time - 7 PM. Since the volleyball team swept Boston College - 3-0 - we were able to drive by the soccer field as the Noles were pinning a 3-2 overtime loss on North Carolina. At the Civic Center - we witnessed the end of a victory by the girls basketball over Stetson College - 101 to 35.
If that wasn't enough - Saturday noon Maryland was here to try to ruin Mickey Andrew's - the FSU defensive coach - home finale. With 3 minutes to go - the Terps took the lead - and the unfaithful Seminole fans streamed out of the stadium. A long kickoff return by Greg Reed - set up a 4 play drive that included two long runs by freshman quarterback EJ Manuel. The Noles won 29-26 and carried Mickey off the field. The irony of the whole situation is that it may have been Bobby Bowden's last home game of his career too.
We drove the scooter home in time to catch the end of Noles basketball game on TV. They were on the road spanking Mercer University of Macon GA - 89-50.
Finally - Sunday at 1 PM - the Volleyball team swept 3 games from the University of Maryland here. The victory was enough to win the ACC championship - first time since they were co-champs in 1992.
Summarizing - Volleyball - Womens Basketball - Soccer won on Friday
Football - Basketball - Saturday
Volleyball - Sunday
6-0 - weekend
I need a Monday morning to re-coup.
