After an unprecedented 2000 season, the Seminole players and coaching staff are very excited about the prospects for the 2001 campaign.Coach Patrick Baker enters 2001 hoping his squad will be a little more mature after so many young players gained invaluable experience in 2000.
"The fact we were in some big games last year for the first time and were successful in a number of them,hopefully will continue in the 2001 season," said Baker."We 've been able to garner another great recruiting class and we hope those players,like the class before them,will be able to step in right away and help us.I 'm not doing my job as a coach from a recruiting standpoint if I don 't bring in players that can help us."
Baker also feels that the development of the upperclassmen,which is something that is sometimes overlooked,could be a key factor in 2001.
"A lot of these young ladies have worked extremely hard since we 've come to Florida State and even in the past year to better themselves on and off of the field," said Baker.
