Feb. 25, 2000

TALLAHASSEE, Fla. - This past weekend, the Seminoles displayed their strength and endurance as they won three matches in three days. On Friday, February 18th, they pulled out the match against the Florida Atlantic Eagles by a score of 4-3. Following that hard fought match, the Noles defeated the University of Southern Mississippi by a score of 4-3 and the Stetson Hatters by a score of 6-1 in Sunday's doubleheader. Friday's match against Georgia State has been rescheduled to March 19th.

With only seven home matches left in the 1999-2000 season, the 45th-ranked Florida State Seminoles tackle the University of Miami Hurricanes on Sunday. During the 1994-1995 season, the Noles defeated the Hurricanes by a score of 5-2. However, the past three meetings with the Hurricanes have resulted in a tight 4-3 loss each year.

Success on the court...
Striving for his eighth consecutive win against Miami will be junior Xavier Luscan. Luscan is 8-1 in dual matches this season for the Seminoles. In addition to Luscan, freshman Rodrigo Laub is striving for his ninth consecutive win. With a successful victory over Miami, Laub will have 14 wins and three losses on the season and five wins and no losses in dual matches.

Playing together for the first time this past weekend against Stetson was the tandem of Jay Travis and Jeff Scarella, who successfully defeated the Hatters at No. 1 by a score of 8-5. Adding to this victory, the No. 3 duo of Mike Ingham and Chad Mooney had a successful doubleheader. The senior/junior team defeated both the University of Southern Mississippi and Stetson increasing their record to 4-2.

Coaches Corner...
"This week's game is going to be a touch match for the guys," said first year head coach Dwayne Hultquist. "Miami has a successful tennis program and this season they are undefeated. We are tired from last weekend's extensive games, but if they have the endurance and stamina to pull off three successful matches in one weekend, than they have a fighting chance against the undefeated Hurricanes."

Sunday's match against Miami is a big day for promoting and emphasizing the importance of Seminole tennis. The marketing department at Florida State is going to give away free visors to the dedicated fans who are the first to attend. Also, the Lifetime Activities Program, at Florida State University, is sponsoring a contest to see how many of their tennis students will attend this weekend's match.
