No. 4 FSU Rolls In the Season Opener.

The Seminoles defeated No. 9 FIU 4-1, and ULM, 5-0.

ST. AUGUSTINE, FL - The fourth-ranked Florida State sand volleyball team kicked off it's third season in style on Saturday at the UNF Sand Invitational. The Seminoles went a combined 9-1 in dual match play with victories against ninth-ranked Florida International and against Louisiana-Monroe.

The `Noles sported new black and gold uniforms as they cruised past their first competition of the 2014 campaign. FSU started off slow, losing the first set on Courts 4 and 5, but they were able to rally back to defeat FIU, 4-1, in the morning match before sweeping ULM in the afternoon, 5-0.

Florida State continues to prove that they are the team to beat on the East Coast. With two victories today, the Seminoles remain undefeated all-time against schools on the East Coast.

Head Coach Danalee Corso rolled out a few new pairs than what we saw last year. On Court 1, 2013 All-American Jace Pardon teamed up with 2012 All-American Aurora Davis. Pardon came into the day as the winningest player in school history with 73 wins. Davis is second in that category with 72 career wins. The talented duo went undefeated in both matches today, winning all four sets.

Corso didn't switch up all the pairs however. Sisters Stephanie and Nina Pellitteri were partnered up again this season. After posting a team-best 34-5 record last year mostly on Court 5, the sister moved up to play on Court 2 and kept their winning ways going. The Pellitteri's swept all four sets of the day in convincing fashion.

Florida State only lost three sets all day as they improve to 2-0 to begin the 2014 season.

No. 4 FSU Rolls In the Season Opener.

The Seminoles defeated No. 9 FIU 4-1, and ULM, 5-0.

ST. AUGUSTINE, FL - The fourth-ranked Florida State sand volleyball team kicked off it's third season in style on Saturday at the UNF Sand Invitational. The Seminoles went a combined 9-1 in dual match play with victories against ninth-ranked Florida International and against Louisiana-Monroe.

The `Noles sported new black and gold uniforms as they cruised past their first competition of the 2014 campaign. FSU started off slow, losing the first set on Courts 4 and 5, but they were able to rally back to defeat FIU, 4-1, in the morning match before sweeping ULM in the afternoon, 5-0.

Florida State continues to prove that they are the team to beat on the East Coast. With two victories today, the Seminoles remain undefeated all-time against schools on the East Coast.

Head Coach Danalee Corso rolled out a few new pairs than what we saw last year. On Court 1, 2013 All-American Jace Pardon teamed up with 2012 All-American Aurora Davis. Pardon came into the day as the winningest player in school history with 73 wins. Davis is second in that category with 72 career wins. The talented duo went undefeated in both matches today, winning all four sets.

Corso didn't switch up all the pairs however. Sisters Stephanie and Nina Pellitteri were partnered up again this season. After posting a team-best 34-5 record last year mostly on Court 5, the sister moved up to play on Court 2 and kept their winning ways going. The Pellitteri's swept all four sets of the day in convincing fashion.

Florida State only lost three sets all day as they improve to 2-0 to begin the 2014 season.

No. 4 Florida State Sand Volleyball Off to 4-0 Start.

The Seminoles swept Jacksonville and UNF on Sunday after routing FIU and ULM on Saturday.

ST. AUGUSTINE, FL - The fourth-ranked Florida State sand volleyball team wrapped up its opening weekend undefeated at the UNF Sand Invitational, defeating Jacksonville, 5-0, and North Florida, 5-0, on Sunday at the St. John's County Pier.

On Saturday, FSU routed No. 9 Florida International, 4-1, and ULM, 5-0.

"This weekend was a good start for our team," FSU head coach Danalee Corso said. "We played three of the toughest teams in the Southeast Region and we came out on top. We had a lot of players really excel. Jace (Pardon) continues to prove she is one of the best players in the country. She and Aurora (Davis) were dominant all weekend. They were very confident and Jace just keeps improving."

Pardon, a junior, and Davis, a senior, went 4-0 on Court 1 on the weekend, defeating Jacksonville's Sammie Strausbaugh and Taylor Nyquist, 21-18, 21-16 and North Florida's Dagnija Medina and Kim Hildreth, 21-18, 21-19, on Sunday.

Florida State's No. 2 tandem of junior Stephanie Pellitteri and her sister sophomore Kristina Pellitteri cruised past Jacksonville's duo of Kendal Courtney and Gabriela Roman (21-14, 21-13) in the morning before recording a come-from-behind victory in the afternoon.

After falling to UNF's Anna Budinska and Cari Whitmire, 21-14, in Set 1, the sisters rebounded to take Set 2, 22-20, and then squeezed out the win in a back-and-forth Set 3, 15-12.

"It was great to see the Pellitteri's fight back against a very good and athletic UNF team," Corso said. "They were challenged like they haven't really been before and it was fun to see them execute a game plan and come back - it was a character building match."

Sophomore Julie Brown and junior Melanie Pavels made short work of their opponents on Court 3 on Sunday, picking up a 21-11, 21-10 victory over Jacksonville's Emily Laskell and Niatha Cullen and handedly defeating UNF's Emily Strack and Britt Claessens (21-14, 21-10).

On Court 4, senior Fatma Yildirim and sophomore Kayla Joyce defeated Jacksonville's Mayara Prestes and Alyssa Robertson, 21-10, 21-19 and took down Tanner Garbutt and Cameron McGuire of UNF (21-13, 21-15).

Juniors Sarah Wickstrom and Katie Mosher blew past JU's Lauren Homrich and Shelby Barnett, 21-7, 21-12, on Court 5 in Mosher's season debut. The indoor volleyball pair followed that effort with a 21-16, 21-8 win against UNF's Julie Trembley and Emily Davanzo.

FSU Knocks Off Reigning National Champions.

Florida State defeated No. 3 Long Beach State, 3-2, on the 49ers' home courts.

LONG BEACH, CA - The "Beasts of the East" finally knocked off the best of the West on Wednesday at the LBSU Courts.

The fourth-ranked Florida State sand volleyball team defeated reigning AVCA National Champions and third-ranked Long Beach State, 3-2, marking the Seminoles' biggest win in school history.

The All-American duo of junior Jace Pardon and senior Aurora Davis lived up to their billing by clinching the match with a two-set victory on Court 1, while Florida State also picked up victories from senior Fatma Yildirim and sophomore Kayla Joyce on Court 4 and the pair of juniors Sarah Wickstrom and Katie Mosher on Court 5.

"Any time you beat the defending national champions it's a huge win," FSU head coach Danalee Corso said. "We played well, but we still have a lot we can improve on. Jace and Aurora were fantastic on Court 1 as they have been all year. Sarah and Katie played great, too. They have been practicing with the indoor team and are just now getting back into the sand routine. They were very steady. Fatma and Kayla had an awesome win too. I'm very proud of this team, but we still have plenty of work to do this season."

The Seminoles improved to 5-0 on the season with the historic victory, while Long Beach State dropped to 2-2.

The competition doesn't get any easier for Florida State. The Noles will put their unblemished record to the test again on Friday in three duals versus No. 2 USC, No. 6 UCLA and Loyola Marymount in Los Angeles. The Trojans, who will host the two-day event, handed Long Beach State its other loss earlier this season.

"This weekend we have another tough matchup against USC and a long day of three matches," Corso said. "We're playing well, but we need to take it one day at a time. We've beaten two of the top 10 teams in the country, and hopefully we can continue to improve and move up the rankings."

The 49ers edged the Seminoles 3-2 at the 2013 AVCA National Championship last spring in Gulf Shores, Ala., and had come out on top in three other head-to-head matchups between the two squads since sand volleyball became a collegiate sport in 2012.

Long Beach State returned five of 10 starters from last year's national championship team, but was still projected to contend for another title this spring.

Wednesday's dual format featured just two courts playing at a time with Courts 4 and 5 starting off, followed by Courts 2 and 6 and ending with play on Courts 1 and 3. Court 6's match was an exhibition.

The Seminoles got off to a blazing start by winning on Courts 4 and 5 to take a 2-0 advantage.

Wickstrom and Mosher routed Long Beach State's No. 5 pair of Ciana Wagner and Morea Wagner, 21-13, 21-13, while Yildirim and Joyce captured a 21-18, 21-17 victory over the 49ers' No. 4 tandem of Jenelle Hudson and Alex Reid.

Joyce and Yildirm fought back from early deficits of 5-2 and 12-9 in the second set to seal the Court 4 win.

Junior Stephanie Pellitteri and sophomore Kristina Pellitteri grabbed a 19-16 first-set lead on Court 2 against LBSU's Janisa Johnson and Tyler Jackson, but couldn't hold on. The 49er pair came back to take the first set, 22-20, and used that momentum to snag a 21-8 win in Set 2.

Heading into the final two matches on Courts 1 and 3, FSU held a 2-1 advantage and just needed a split to nab the upset.

Pardon was extraordinary at the net, tallying kills and blocks at the perfect time as the Seminoles' No. 1 tandem clinched the match and dual on a kill by Davis which capped a 21-17, 21-13 win over Delainey Aigner-Swesey and Bojana Todorovic.

"It felt awesome to redeem ourselves," Pardon said. "We were so close the past two seasons. It feels great to beat the reigning national champs. We came out and did what we were supposed to do. We limited our mistakes. We kept with the game plan and executed it. I'm really excited for Friday. I can't wait to face USC. It will be some great competition."

On Court 3, FSU sophomore Julie Brown and junior Melanie Pavels fell to Long Beach State's Bre Mackie and Chelsea Cabrajac, 21-15, 21-18.

Earlier in the day, sophomore Annie Montgomery and freshman Julia Thompson dropped a tough three-set match to Joy Miley and Makayla Taylor in an exhibition contest on Court 6, 14-21, 26-24, 15-13.

No. 4 FSU Sand Volleyball Finishes 2-1 at USC Event.

The Seminoles were edged, 3-2, by No. 2 Southern California, but swept No. 6 UCLA and Loyola Marymount.

LOS ANGELES, CA - The fourth-ranked Florida State sand volleyball team went 2-1 on Friday at Southern California's Merle Stadium, sweeping No. 6 UCLA (5-0) and Loyola Marymount (5-0) and losing a close 3-2 dual to the second-ranked Trojans.

The Seminoles were led by the No. 1 pair of senior Aurora Davis and junior Jace Pardon and the No. 3 tandem of junior Stephanie Pellitteri and sophomore Kristina Pellitteri, who both went 3-0 and only dropped one set.

"Our whole team played well in what was a very long day of great competition," Florida State head coach Danalee Corso said. "We tweaked the lineup a little bit from Wednesday and as the day went on. We battled very close with USC. That's how you expect those matches to be between two of the nation's Top 4 teams. It's always going to be a battle. We'll get some rest tonight and then get ready for another marathon day tomorrow."

The Southern California event wraps up Saturday with bracket play beginning at 9 a.m. PT. Pairs will have to win four consecutive matches to capture the title in their grouping.

FSU played USC first before taking on Loyola Marymount and UCLA. Each match was split into two waves with Courts 4 and 5 playing first followed by Courts 1, 2 and 3.

The Seminoles started the dual against Southern California in a 2-0 hole. Senior Fatma Yildirim and sophomore Kayla Joyce lost a close 21-16, 26-24 dual to Allie Wheeler and Nicolette Martin on Court 5, while juniors Sarah Wickstrom and Katie Mosher dropped a three-set matchup to Eve Ettinger and Bria Russ on Court 4, winning the first set 21-18, but dropping the next two 21-16, 15-11.

FSU rallied on Courts 1, 2 and 3, however.

Pardon and Davis continued to show why they could be the nation's top tandem by knocking off the Trojans' top duo of Kirby Burnham and Sara Hughes in an epic three-set thriller, 18-21, 21-18, 19-17. Pardon served an ace and Davis had two huge kills, including a match-point smash, down the stretch to pick up the huge pairs victory. Burnham teamed with former Trojan Stevi Robinson to claim the ACVA Collegiate Sand Volleyball National Championship pairs title in 2013, while Hughes was that No. 1 sand volleyball recruit in the country heading into the 2014 campaign.

The Pellitteri's also came out on top in a three-set affair with Sam Hirshmann and Natasa Silijkovic, coming back to grab a 20-22, 21-17, 22-20 win on Court 3. Kristina Pellitteri tallied the final two points in the back-and-forth final set, getting a tool kill followed by a deep line shot that dropped for the win.

Alexa Strange and Kelly Claes clinched the match for USC on Court 2, narrowly defeating FSU sophomore Julie Brown and junior Melanie Pavels, 24-22, 21-19.

Florida State thoroughly dominated Loyola Marymount, Corso's alma mater, in its second match. All five teams won in two sets. Pardon and Davis cruised past the Lions' No. 1 pair of Betsi Metter and Litara Keil (21-11, 21-6), Brown and Pavels routed Kathleen Luft and Avery Bush on Court 2 (21-13, 22-20) and the Pellitteri's took down Taylor Akana and Rachelle Suaava (21-16, 21-16) on Court 3.

On Court 4, Yildirim and Joyce downed Caitlin DeWitt and Hannah Tedrow, 21-11, 21-12, and freshmen Hailey Luke and Sierra Sanchez handled Ashley Maxfeldt and Anne Marie Taylor on Court 5, 21-6, 21-16.

Florida State wrapped up a long Friday with another 5-0 win against sixth-ranked UCLA, but had to pick up a pair of three-set victories on Courts 1 and 2 to insure the sweep.

Pardon and Davis grabbed a 21-16, 20-22, 15-9 win over Bruins' top pair Jessyka Ngauamo and Kamila Tan, while Brown and Pavels edged UCLA's Zoe Nightingale and Maddie Smith, 20-22, 21-15, 15-9 on Court 2.

The Pellitteri's dominated on Court 3, breezing past Rachel Inouye and Karly Droslen, 21-16, 21-7. The sisters held a commanding 17-4 lead at one point in the second set against the UCLA pair.

On Court 4, Wickstrom and Mosher captured a 25-23, 21-12 win over Taylor Formico and Karsta Lowe, while Luke and Joyce paired together for the first time to snag a 21-18, 21-12 victory on Court 5.

"We had some outstanding performances today," Corso said. "Jace and Aurora were phenomenal. They beat a USC team that had one of the reigning national pairs champions and a very tall UCLA squad. Julie is playing very well - she's becoming a great blocker. Hailey Luke made her debut today and showed a lot of potential. All of our freshmen are playing well. We're excited with how the team is progressing."

Pardon and Davis continued to show why they could be the nation's top tandem by knocking off the Trojans' top duo of Kirby Burnham and Sara Hughes in an epic three-set thriller, 18-21, 21-18, 19-17. Pardon served an ace and Davis had two huge kills, including a match-point smash, down the stretch to pick up the huge pairs victory. Burnham teamed with former Trojan Stevi Robinson to claim the ACVA Collegiate Sand Volleyball National Championship pairs title in 2013, while Hughes was that No. 1 sand volleyball recruit in the country heading into the 2014 campaign.

The Pellitteri's also came out on top in a three-set affair with Sam Hirshmann and Natasa Silijkovic, coming back to grab a 20-22, 21-17, 22-20 win on Court 3. Kristina Pellitteri tallied the final two points in the back-and-forth final set, getting a tool kill followed by a deep line shot that dropped for the win.

Alexa Strange and Kelly Claes clinched the match for USC on Court 2, narrowly defeating FSU sophomore Julie Brown and junior Melanie Pavels, 24-22, 21-19.

Florida State thoroughly dominated Loyola Marymount, Corso's alma mater, in its second match. All five teams won in two sets. Pardon and Davis cruised past the Lions' No. 1 pair of Betsi Metter and Litara Keil (21-11, 21-6), Brown and Pavels routed Kathleen Luft and Avery Bush on Court 2 (21-13, 22-20) and the Pellitteri's took down Taylor Akana and Rachelle Suaava (21-16, 21-16) on Court 3.

On Court 4, Yildirim and Joyce downed Caitlin DeWitt and Hannah Tedrow, 21-11, 21-12, and freshmen Hailey Luke and Sierra Sanchez handled Ashley Maxfeldt and Anne Marie Taylor on Court 5, 21-6, 21-16.

Florida State wrapped up a long Friday with another 5-0 win against sixth-ranked UCLA, but had to pick up a pair of three-set victories on Courts 1 and 2 to insure the sweep.

Pardon and Davis grabbed a 21-16, 20-22, 15-9 win over Bruins' top pair Jessyka Ngauamo and Kamila Tan, while Brown and Pavels edged UCLA's Zoe Nightingale and Maddie Smith, 20-22, 21-15, 15-9 on Court 2.

The Pellitteri's dominated on Court 3, breezing past Rachel Inouye and Karly Droslen, 21-16, 21-7. The sisters held a commanding 17-4 lead at one point in the second set against the UCLA pair.

On Court 4, Wickstrom and Mosher captured a 25-23, 21-12 win over Taylor Formico and Karsta Lowe, while Luke and Joyce paired together for the first time to snag a 21-18, 21-12 victory on Court 5.

"We had some outstanding performances today," Corso said. "Jace and Aurora were phenomenal. They beat a USC team that had one of the reigning national pairs champions and a very tall UCLA squad. Julie is playing very well - she's becoming a great blocker. Hailey Luke made her debut today and showed a lot of potential. All of our freshmen are playing well. We're excited with how the team is progressing."

Sand Volleyball Places Three Pairs in Semifinals.

The Seminoles captured three of four semifinal spots and Jace Pardon and Aurora Davis nabbed runner-up honors on Saturday at USC.

LOS ANGELES, CA - The fourth-ranked Florida State sand volleyball team wrapped up its West Coast trip by nabbing three of the four semifinal spots during bracket play on Saturday at Southern California's Merle Stadium.

The All-America duo of senior Aurora Davis and junior Jace Pardon advanced to the finals, while junior Melanie Pavels and sophomore Julie Brown and the sister tandem of junior Stephanie Pellitteri and sophomore Kristina Pellitteri joined Davis and Pardon in the semifinals.

USC's No. 1 duo Kirby Burnham and Sara Hughes was the fourth semifinalist and defeated Davis and Pardon in the championship match, 21-8, 21-12.

Davis and Pardon knocked off Burnham and Hughes in a three-set match on Court 1 during dual play on Friday.

Brown and Pavels had the best performance of the day in the quarterfinals, avenging Friday's loss to USC's No. 2 tandem of Kelly Claes and Alexa Strange by edging out a 21-23, 21-17, 15-13 win to vault the Garnet and Gold duo to the semifinals. Pavels tallied an incredible 27 kills in the three-set match - by far the most of any player on the day.

"All in all we had a great weekend," Florida State head coach Danalee Corso said. "It was a successful, long trip. We've already played the top teams on our schedule so we feel very good about where we stand for the National Championships. Everybody played better today, and we got a little tired at the end since we played one more match than the other teams on Friday. Julie and Melanie showed great improvement in coming back to beat USC's No. 2 team. We're looking forward to continuing to compete and show that kind of improvement."

Brown and Pavels fell to Burnham and Hughes in the semifinals, 21-9, 21-13.

The Pellitteri's advanced to the semifinals by cruising past Loyola Marymount's top two pairs in straight sets. In the semifinals, the sisters fell to teammates Davis and Pardon, 21-14, 21-13.

Juniors Sarah Wickstrom and Katie Mosher also advanced to the quarterfinals, but fell to Burnham and Hughes, 21-9, 21-13.

The Seminoles had seven pairs compete in the 20-team tournament and every FSU tandem won at least one match, led by the 3-1 record from Davis and Pardon.

The duos of sophomore Kayla Joyce and senior Fatma Yildirim, sophomore Annie Montgomery and freshman Julia Thompson, and freshmen Hailey Luke and Sierra Sanchez all captured Round 1 victories, while Montgomery and Thompson added a second win in a consolation match.

PANAMA CITY BEACH EVENT

Seminoles Dominate Beach Play in Panama City.

The Florida State sand volleyball team swept the top six positions at a PCB event on Saturday.

PANAMA CITY BEACH, FL - The All-American duo of senior Aurora Davis and junior Jace Pardon went undefeated and a young pair solidified its position in the starting lineup as the fourth-ranked Florida State sand volleyball team competed in a tune-up event at the Russell-Fields Pier.

The Seminoles faced off against each other as well as Gulf Coast State College and a group of adult teams over the course of two rounds of pool play.

FSU swept the top six spots at the end of a beautiful day on the beach. The Seminoles were undefeated against Gulf Coast State College and the adult pairs.

"We had a great all-around day," FSU head coach Danalee Corso said. "The weather was beautiful and it was fun to play on some phenomenal beach courts at Pier Plaza in Panama City. Jace and Aurora played well and Stephanie (Pellitteri) was fantastic today. Julia (Thompson) and Annie (Montgomery) really impressed me. They are moving up the ranks and into the starting lineup with their play."

Pardon and Davis continued to prove they will be contenders for the national pairs title by finishing 4-0 and in first-place overall at the event. The duo cruised past teammates junior Melanie Pavels and sophomore Julie Brown and Stephanie and Kristina Pellitteri in the second wave of pool play.

The Pellitteri's potentially staked their claim to FSU's No. 2 position in the lineup by defeating Brown and Pavels in a three-set thriller (20-22, 21-16, 15-4) to finish second on the day. Both pairs have swung between the second and third spots in the lineup for the Garnet and Gold this season.

The real breakthrough came in the other pool during the second wave, where Montgomery, a sophomore, and Thompson, a freshman, came out on top to claim fourth-place.

Montgomery and Thompson have yet to see significant action in the starting lineup this season, but that could change after the duo defeated both the pair of senior Fatma Yildirim and sophomore Kayla Joyce, as well as freshman Sierra Sanchez and Lexy Ryan.

"Annie has showed huge improvement from her freshmen year to now," Corso said. "I'm super excited for Annie and Julia. They have amazing attitudes and are really working hard."

FSU Collects Three Dual Victories on Day 1 of Sand Invite.

The Seminoles defeated South Carolina (5-0), LSU (5-0) and Jacksonville (4-1) on Saturday.

TALLAHASSEE, FL - Behind impressive depth and veteran experience, the fourth-ranked Florida State sand volleyball team captured the team championship by going 3-0 during dual play action on Day 1 of the Florida State Sand Volleyball Invitational on Saturday.

The Seminoles defeated South Carolina (5-0), LSU (5-0) and Jacksonville (4-1) on what quickly became a beautiful day at the FSU Sand Volleyball Complex.

The six-match event began in rainy conditions against the Gamecocks, who are in their inaugural season and previously faced the Seminoles in an exhibition in Tallahassee in November. By the end of the match, the rain was gone, the sun was out and Florida State had run away with the opening 5-0 victory.

The Seminoles didn't drop a set in their first two matches, as they also beat LSU, 5-0.

In the afternoon, Florida State picked up a 4-1 victory over Jacksonville.

"We came out well-rested, we actually had a couple of days off this week, so the girls came out, they knew this was their big home match of the year, and they're just firing on all cylinders," Florida State assistant coach Brian Corso said. "We did video work through the week fine-tuning some things, so they had a lot in their minds of what they needed to work on in these few matches in the beginning, and they did that."

LSU finished 2-1 on the day, while Jacksonville went 1-2 and South Carolina had an 0-3 mark.

All four teams will return to the FSU Sand Volleyball complex beginning at 8:30 a.m. on Sunday for silver and gold bracket double elimination tournament play. The silver bracket will feature each team's No. 3, 4 and 5 pairs, while the gold bracket will have each roster's top two duos.

The Seminoles had dominant efforts from Court 1 to Court 5 on Saturday and were able to use the day to showcase some pairings that could be vital as the season enters its second half and the AVCA National Championships approach. Senior Fatma Yildirim, an honorable mention indoor All-American, and junior Sarah Wickstrom, a sand All-American and indoor setter, were playing together for the first time since the 2012 season. The pair went 3-0, routing opponents on Court 5 against South Carolina (21-9, 21-12) and LSU (21-13, 21-11).

"It's the first time in a while, but it feels great to be playing with Fatma again," Wickstrom said. "We get to split blocks, which we haven't done all year, and that's something that's really fun and we're having a good time, so it's good to be back together. Hopefully, Fatma and I can stay together and continue to dominate."

Wickstrom and Yildirim moved up to Court 4 against Jacksonville and continued their success, winning 21-12, 21-10.

Of course that pair wasn't the only Garnet and Gold duo to finish undefeated.

The All-American duo of junior Jace Pardon and senior Aurora Davis didn't drop a set and finished 3-0 on the day on Court 1 to move their season record to 16-1.

Pardon and Davis will be the favorites to capture the gold bracket championship on Sunday.

Junior Stephanie Pellitteri and her sister, sophomore Stephanie Pellitteri, went 2-0 with resounding victories over South Carlina (21-17, 21-13) and LSU (21-6, 21-17) on Court 2 to open the day before sitting out the final match. The sisters are 12-3 this season.

Another vital pairing as the season continues will be the duo of freshman Julia Thompson and sophomore Annie Montgomery. After playing six previous matches this season, all in tournament play, the pair began the day on Court 4 by defeating the South Carolina team of Chynna Ratner and Litsa Darby, 21-9, 21-14. Thompson and Montgomery used a 17-5 run to close the first set to help set the tone for the remainder of the match and the rest of the day.

Montgomery and Thompson also picked up a 21-13, 21-9 victory on Court 4 versus LSU and a 21-17, 21-17 win on Court 3 against Jacksonville.

Junior Melanie Pavels and sophomore Julie Brown finished 2-1 on the day with victories on Court 3 over South Carolina (21-15, 21-13) and LSU (21-15, 21-11), but fell on Court 2 against the Jacksonville duo of Kendall Courtney and Niatha Cullen, 22-20, 21-17.

Freshmen Hailey Luke and Sierra Sanchez competed on Court 5 against Jacksonville and grabbed a 21-6, 21-9 victory.

The Seminoles moved to 10-1 on the season and remain undefeated against East Coast teams since sand volleyball's first season in 2012.

Montgomery and Thompson also picked up a 21-13, 21-9 victory on Court 4 versus LSU and a 21-17, 21-17 win on Court 3 against Jacksonville.

Junior Melanie Pavels and sophomore Julie Brown finished 2-1 on the day with victories on Court 3 over South Carolina (21-15, 21-13) and LSU (21-15, 21-11), but fell on Court 2 against the Jacksonville duo of Kendall Courtney and Niatha Cullen, 22-20, 21-17.

Freshmen Hailey Luke and Sierra Sanchez competed on Court 5 against Jacksonville and grabbed a 21-6, 21-9 victory.

The Seminoles moved to 10-1 on the season and remain undefeated against East Coast teams since sand volleyball's first season in 2012.

Seminoles Sweep Titles at Pairs Tournament.

After going undefeated in duals on Saturday, FSU wins the Pairs Tournament on Sunday.

TALLAHASSEE, FL - The fourth-ranked Florida State sand volleyball team used the momentum generated by Saturday's undefeated dual-match play to post additional sensational performances on Sunday at the FSU Sand Volleyball Complex.

The Seminoles capped the two-day Florida State Sand Volleyball Invitational by capturing the pairs titles in both the Gold (Pairs 1 and 2) and Silver (Pairs 3, 4 and 5) brackets.

Florida State's No. 1 team of senior Aurora Davis and junior Jace Pardon zipped past Jacksonville's top tandem of Taylor Nyquist and Sammie Strausbaugh in straight sets, 21-15, 21-15, in the Gold bracket final. The Noles captured the first set when Pardon had a monster block. Her kill also gave the duo the second set.

"It was an awesome win," Pardon said. "They came close to us yesterday in duals. It was just nice today to have a clean win, and win the whole thing with Aurora who is such an awesome athlete."

Davis and Pardon improved their record to 20-1 on the season after three victories in duals Saturday, and four victories in the Pairs Tournament.

"Jace and Aurora played amazing," Florida State head coach Danalee Corso said. "They are two All-Americans who are already good, but today I was seeing some of the best volleyball that they have ever played. I think that there is something very calm about their demeanor and their confidence. They know that they are not a one trick pony. They have a lot in their arsenal and tools that they can use, and they are using them all."

Davis is a 2012 All-American, while Pardon earned All-America honors in 2013. Their talent is evident, but their growing chemistry really has them clicking as a team.

"We are both really experienced players and really good defenders," Davis said. "It has worked really well. Jace is just such an awesome player. She is great at everything. It is awesome playing with her."

Davis and Pardon weren't the only two Seminoles to hoist trophies. In the Silver bracket, Florida State's No. 5 duo of senior Fatma Yildirim and junior Sarah Wickstrom took down the Seminoles' third pair of sophomore Julie Brown and junior Melanie Pavels in an epic three-set thriller, 22-24, 24-22, 16-14.

Yildirim and Wickstrom dropped the back-and-forth first set, that featured 10 different lead changes after a 13-13 tie. The second set was another see-saw affair until Wickstrom's serve hit the top of the net and dropped in to clinch a 24-22 victory.

Yildirim and Wickstrom opened the third set with an early 9-6 lead, but Pavels fought back with five consecutive kills to give she and Brown an 11-9 advantage. Attacks from Yildirim were too much, however, and her kill through Brown's block earned them the final set, 16-14, and the match.

"Both Fatma and Sarah have been in a No. 1 position for us before," Corso said. "I knew they were going to be hard to beat because they are better than any No. 5 team, but that just shows the depth we have. I'm going to bring them up from No. 5 to No. 4 and we will go from there. I'm happy to see that they are finally playing to their potential. I knew it was there, it was just a matter of time."

The entire Garnet and Gold squad had impressive performances on the day. Davis and Pardon and Wickstrom and Yildirim went 4-0 on the day, while Brown and Pavels went 2-1.

FSU's No. 2 tandem of junior Stephanie Pellitteri and sophomore Kristina Pellitteri reached the semifinals before losing a nail-biter to the Gold bracket runner-up duo of Nyquist and Strausbaugh, 21-19, 18-21, 18-16.

The Pellitteri's finished with a 2-2 record on Sunday.

The No. 4 pair of sophomore Annie Montgomery and freshman Julia Thompson advanced to the Silver bracket semifinals before losing to teammates Brown and Pavels, 21-16, 21-14.

Montgomery and Thompson tallied a 2-1 mark on the day.

Florida State Improves to 12-1 at the CofC Sand Classic.

The Seminoles sweep both South Carolina and Mercer 5-0.

CHARLESTON, SC - The fourth-ranked Florida State sand volleyball team improved its record to 12-1 after sweeping South Carolina (5-0) and Mercer (5-0) at the CofC Sand Classic in Charleston, S.C.

The Seminoles only dropped one set the entire day en route to their victories over the Gamecocks and Bears.

FSU's top pair of senior Aurora Davis and junior Jace Pardon reached 20 wins on the season by defeating Victoria Penrod and Emma Peel of Mercer 21-11, 21-10. Florida State's No. 1 tandem has a 20-1 record. Davis and Pardon defeated Paige Wheeler and Megan Kent of South Carolina earlier Saturday 21-15, 21-9.

"They're playing unbelievably well together right now," FSU head coach Danalee Corso said of her No. 1 pair. "They're dominating and are definitely one of the best teams in the nation. Aurora is playing better than she ever has and has really improved since last year. Jace has become such a better blocker and is more explosive. They are so fun to watch."

Senior Fatma Yildirim and junior Sarah Wickstrom were bumped up to the No. 4 slot because of their stellar play as of late and did not disappoint. With an 11-2 run to start the second set, Yildirim and Wickstrom rolled over Chynna Ratner and Litsa Darby 21-12, 21-7 in their match against the Gamecocks. The quick starts carried over into their next match against Zoe Becton and Emily Rochefort of Mercer as the Seminole pair led 9-0 in the beginning of the second set. Yildirim and Wickstrom finished off the Bears 21-12, 21-12 and are 8-0 together for the season.

"Sarah and Fatma are really rounding into shape," Corso said. "Both have been on our No. 1 team in the past so it's no surprise they are playing well together. I've seen them make big strides and I expect them to get even better."

Corso changed the lineup in the second match of the day against Mercer. Yildirim and Wickstrom switched spots with third pair junior Melanie Pavels and sophomore Julie Brown, while freshmen Sierra Sanchez and Hailey Luke played on court 5.

Sanchez and Luke made the most of their opportunity getting the start against the Bears. The duo won both sets easily against Caroline Carlton and Avery Hoven 21-12, 21-12.

Pavels and Brown improved to 15-7 on the season with wins over Jordan Loney and Jade Vitt of South Carolina 21-10, 21-13 and Erin Brett and Hannah Sorensen of Mercer 21-10, 21-10.

Junior Stephanie Pellitteri and sophomore Kristina Pellitteri won both matches today as well. The sisters ran into some adversity in their second match against Jamie Duffy and Natalie Brown of Mercer after dropping the first set 21-17. The Pellitteri's fought back and won the next two sets to finish off the sweep.

Florida State Wins Two More Duals at CofC Sand Classic.

The Seminoles have won nine consecutive matches.

MT. PLEASANT, SC - The fourth-ranked Florida State sand volleyball team picked up its eighth and ninth consecutive dual match victories of the season on Sunday morning at the CofC Sand Classic hosted by the College of Charleston at the sand courts at Creekside.

The Seminoles captured their fourth win over a ranked team in the day's first match, defeating No. 8 Georgia State, 4-1, before taking down host College of Charleston, 5-0.

In the process, Florida State improved its record to 14-1 on the season as the Noles continue to prove they are the most dominant team in the East Region less than a month away from the AVCA National Championships.

"The East is picking up its level of play and we were definitely challenged this weekend," FSU head coach Danalee Corso said. "This is good. We like to be challenged. We still have a lot we can improve on and we are going to continue to press on and keep working hard."

Senior All-American Aurora Davis and junior All-American Jace Pardon cruised to a pair of sweeps against Georgia State and College of Charleston's top tandems on Court 1, while sisters junior Stephanie Pellitteri and sophomore Kristina Pellitteri did the same on Court 2 also handedly picking up consecutive set victories against the Panthers and Cougars.

Arguably the top performance of the day came on Court 3, however, where the duo of junior All-American Sarah Wickstrom and senior Fatma Yildirim grabbed two victories including an epic three-set win over Georgia State's Sarah Agnew and Katelyn Rawls, 21-18, 33-35, 15-13. The veteran pair rebounded from the taxing second set loss to secure the back-and-forth third set.

"That was an unreal match and it was awesome to see Sarah and Fatma battle back with that kind of pressure on them," Corso said. "We can't recreate that kind of pressure in practice so it was a great win. Sarah is getting back to her All-America level from last year and today's match really helped bring out the best in both of them."

Wickstrom and Yildirm remain undefeated at 10-0 this season.

In addition, junior Melanie Pavels and sophomore Julie Brown routed their Georgia State and College of Charleston opponents on Court 4 and freshmen Sierra Sanchez and Hailey Luke came from behind to defeat Cougar pair Kari Fidelholtz and Catey Warren 19-21, 21-18, 15-13 on Court 5.

Sophomore Annie Montgomery and freshman Julia Thompson competed on Court 5 against Georgia State but fell to Alexis Townsend and Delaney Rohan 21-17, 21-12.

Beasts of the East.

The Seminoles remain undefeated all-time against schools on the East Coast.

SIESTA KEY, FL - The fourth-ranked Florida State sand volleyball team finished its dual-match regular season with victories over Webber International, 4-1, and Tulane, 5-0, on Day 1 of the Fiesta on Siesta Key event.

The Seminoles improved their dual-match record to 16-1 on the season and remain undefeated all-time (since 2012) against schools on the East Coast.

"It was one of our goals to be the best team on the East Coast," Florida State head coach Danalee Corso said. "To end another season undefeated against schools in our region, it is exciting for our players and staff to be able to do that."

Florida State was able to rest some key players in its first match against Webber International and was still able to come out victorious.

"We had a partner change in the Webber International match to rest players because this weekend is such a marathon," Corso said.

All-American junior Jace Pardon and junior Stephanie Pellitteri sat out against the Warriors which switched up the Seminoles' lineup slightly.

All-American senior Aurora Davis was paired up with sophomore Kristina Pellitteri for the first time all season and fell to Tulane's Helene Rancourt and Karowlina Sowala, 22-20, 22-20.

Pardon and Pellitteri were back in their normal roles in FSU's second match against Tulane as the Seminoles rolled over the Green Wave.

Davis teamed back up with her normal partner Jace Pardon and cruised to victory over Tea Juric and Jackie Wegner 21-13, 21-18 on court 1. The All-American duo is now 23-1 on the season.

Senior Fatma Yildirim and junior Sarah Wickstrom continue to stay perfect while fighting to move up on the depth chart. Yildirim and Wickstrom won both matches with ease, defeating Tara Sandbeck and Liz Eddy of Webber International, 21-14, 21-10, and making quick work of Hannah Holmes and Annie Shurtz of Tulane, 21-16, 21-17. Yildirim and Wickstrom are an impressive 12-0 on the season when playing together.

"This is Fatma's venue," Corso said. "She plays significantly better at Siesta Key because the beach is so flat. The flatter beach makes it easier for indoor volleyball players. She was an All-American indoor player and this venue allows her to show off her indoor skills."

The battle for the fifth spot is increasingly becoming tighter as the AVCA National Championships approach. The tandem of sophomore Annie Montgomery and freshman Julia Thompson finished 2-0 on the day after dropping the first set in their match against Tulane's Sarah Strasner and Miah Diirell, 17-21. Montgomery and Thompson were able to keep their composure and win the next two sets and clinch the sweep of the Green Wave.

The freshmen pair of Hailey Luke and Sierra Sanchez have now won four dual-matches in a row after defeating Webber International's Alida Schat and Brittany Mock, 21-15, 21-17.

"It is great to pull through in tight matches," Corso said. "Three of the four competing are freshmen, and the best way to learn is through losses and fighting back. These are the future stars of our program and we have to keep grooming them."

Dominant Duo: Pardon and Davis Win Again.

The Seminoles' No. 1 pair captured the Siesta Pairs Challenge tile to move to 30-1 on the season.

April 13, 2014

SIESTA KEY, FL - All-Americans Aurora Davis and Jace Pardon continue to prove they will be top contenders for the national pairs championship following an undefeated weekend while leading the fourth-ranked Florida State sand volleyball team at the Fiesta on Siesta Key event.

Davis, a senior, and Pardon, a junior, captured the coveted Siesta Sand Pairs Challenge on Sunday wrapping up the three-day event without ever dropping a set.

The pair now has a nearly flawless record of 30-1 this season just a few weeks from the AVCA Collegiate Sand Volleyball National Championships in Gulf Shores, Ala. (May 2-4).

Davis and Pardon won four consecutive two-set matches on Sunday to claim their second straight pairs tournament title after also winning the gold division at the FSU Sand Volleyball Invitational two weeks ago.

On the beaches of Siesta Key, Pardon and Davis defeated North Florida's top pair of Dagnija Medina and Kim Hildreth 21-15, 21-14 in the finals.

"Jace and Aurora were super impressive today," Florida State head coach Danalee Corso said. "They made me believe that they have the ability to win a national championship today. If they can play like they did today, the sky is the limit.

"They aren't the tallest team in the nation, but they make up for that by being complete players. Their defense is incredibly good. They both dig so well. They make great choices on the court. They have so many different tools - ball control, serving and setting. They can do it all and they are so much fun to coach."

The Siesta Pairs Challenge bracket featured the top 16 pairs among the 40 teams at the event.

In addition to Pardon and Davis, FSU's No. 2 tandem of junior Stephanie Pellitteri and sophomore Kristina Pellitteri and Noles' No. 3 duo of senior Fatma Yildirim and junior Sarah Wickstrom also competed in the marquee bracket.

The Pellitteri sisters fell to FIU's No. 1 team of Jessica Mendoza and Maryna Samoday in the quarterfinals, while Wickstrom and Yildirim fell to South Carolina's Sarah Blomgren and Mikaela Christiaansen in three sets in the first round.

Florida State also had four teams compete in the Sunday Funday brackets, single elimination tournaments featuring one set to 25.

Freshmen Sierra Sanchez and Hailey Luke captured first place in Pool D by cruising to four straight victories all by at least eight points.

Junior Melanie Pavels and sophomore Julie Brown competed in Pool A and fell in the semifinals to Georgia State's Sarah Agnew and Katelyn Rawls.

Sophomore Annie Montgomery and freshman Julia Thompson fell in the first round of Pool B and sophomore Lexy Ryan and junior Mercedes Vaughn dropped their first match in Pool D.

"I'm very happy with the way we played this weekend," Corso said. "We won four different divisions. Sierra and Hailey made a huge leap today. They get better every match they play and this win will definitely build their confidence. I'm really looking forward to more great competition next weekend at our home pairs tournament."


`Noles win Gold and Silver Championships at Fiesta on Siesta Key.

Florida State won both the Gold and Silver bracket championships on Saturday.

April 12, 2014

SIESTA KEY, FL - The No. 4-ranked Florida State sand volleyball team captured the Gold and Silver bracket division and went undefeated among its top three teams during Day 2 of competition at the Fiesta at Siesta Key sand volleyball event.

The duo of junior Melanie Pavels and Julie Brown won seven consecutive matches en route to the Gold championship, while sophomore Annie Montgomery and freshman Julia Thompson won the Silver championship.

Both brackets and pools were played one set to 25 in the Gold and Silver Divisions.

"Overall, we had a great day," FSU head coach Danalee Corso said. "We went undefeated in the Sand Pairs Challenge pool play and we won the Gold and Silver brackets. I'm looking forward to having another great day tomorrow. Hopefully we can win the Sand Pairs Challenge too. Melanie and Julie played so well all day. They were really dominant. They've really been challenged recently within our team and they've retooled some things and came out and played great today. I'm really proud of them."

The match of the day came when Montgomery and Thompson trailed 16-8 in the Silver Finals, but fought back to win 27-25. It was just one comeback among several for the duo this season, who can never be counted out of a match.

"Julia and Annie are who we are calling the comeback kids now," Corso said. "Several times this season they have been down and fought back to win. I'm really impressed in their ability to fight back and win. They didn't play as well last week, but they were impressive today and I'm really excited for them. They're a young team and they just keep getting better. Today was a good confidence builder."

In the Siesta Sand Pairs Challenge, FSU's No. 1 team of junior All-American Jace Pardon and senior All-American Aurora Davis, No. 2 pair of junior Stephanie Pellitteri and sophomore Kristina Pellitteri and the No. 3 duo of senior Fatma Yildirim and junior All-American Sarah Wickstrom all went 3-0 in pool play and will be the top seeds in Sunday's Pairs Challenge tournament.

Brown and Pavels put on the most dominant performance on the day, defeating a team from Webber International 25-1. The duo was up 23-0 before allowing a point. Freshmen Hailey Luke and Sierra Sanchez also competed in the gold bracket and went 4-1, while sophomores Lexy Ryan and Kayla Joyce finished 2-2 in the silver bracket.

Seminoles Brush Off Rain to Dominate Day 1.

Four FSU pairs went undefeated on Friday at the Florida State Pairs Challenge.

April 18, 2014

TALLAHASSEE, FL - The rain never let up and neither did the Seminoles on Friday during Day 1 of competition at the Florida State Pairs Challenge.

Despite a steady downpour and gusting winds all day, the fourth-ranked Florida State sand volleyball team was able to host 36 matches of pairs pool play with No. 10 Georgia State, ULM and South Carolina to kick-off the two-day event.

Led by senior All-American Aurora Davis and junior All-American Jace Pardon, the Seminoles had four pairs go undefeated at 3-0 in their respective pools and will have three teams in the Team Cup's Gold Division, the top pool, on Saturday.

"It is extremely tough playing in these conditions but this is our sport and our ladies have played in much worse," FSU head coach Danalee Corso said. "This could happen at the National Championships. It is a totally different game when it rains like this so we have to practice in this. In reality, if we had to practice in this we would take a day off but when it is a competition you have to play.

"This is a great mental practice for the team because conditions like this is a great equalizer. The top seeds aren't as strong because you are dealing with another element. They have to play a different kind of game. The ball is heavier, it is more of a (shot-heavy) game. It definitely is going to toughen us up mentally."

The Team Cup trophy will be awarded to the squad with the most points following Saturday's competition. The point scale will work as follows: first place in the Gold pool will earn 12.5 Team Cup points, second place will earn 12 points, third place 11.5 points and fourth place 11 points. The winner of the Silver pool will be awarded 10.5 points and so forth down the finishes of each pool.

There will be a Gold, Silver, Bronze, AAA, AA and A divisions.

Joining Davis and Pardon, who swept all three of their matches in their pool to improve their record to 33-1 this season, were junior Melanie Pavels and sophomore Julie Brown and senior Fatma Yildirim and junior Sarah Wickstrom.

Pavels and Brown didn't drop a set en route to winning their pool.

Yildirim and Wickstrom finished 2-1 in their pool, falling to ULM's No. 1 team of Zuzana Markova and Marcela Araya 21-17, 21-19. Markova and Zuzana join the Seminoles' top three pairs in the Gold Division.

"I think a day like this is really good because when it comes to Nationals you never know what the weather is going to be like," Davis said. "Just to be ready for anything I think it really helps us with that."

Two duos of young performers also went undefeated for FSU and will headline the AAA Division during Saturday's play.

Sophomore Annie Montgomery and freshman Julia Thompson and freshmen Sierra Sanchez and Hailey Luke both finished 3-0 without dropping a set.

Also competing on Friday was the pair of sophomores Kayla Joyce and Lexy Ryan, who finished 2-1 with their only loss coming in three sets to Georgia State's Delaney Rohan and Alexis Townsend.

"I think everyone did really well," Pardon said. "No one complained. It is great practice playing in these types of conditions so we can be ready for anything at Nationals. It was good experience."


Florida State Captures Team Cup at Pairs Challenge.

Aurora Davis and Jace Pardon won the Gold Division title at the Nole-hosted event.

April 19, 2014

TALLAHASSEE, FL - The fourth-ranked Florida State sand volleyball team cruised to the Team Cup Championship on Saturday at the FSU Sand Volleyball Complex on the second day of the Florida State Pairs Challenge.

The All-American duo of senior Aurora Davis and junior Jace Pardon finished off an undefeated 6-0 weekend by collecting the Gold Division title, while the pair of freshmen Sierra Sanchez and Hailey Luke also went 6-0 and captured the AAA crown.

Those two teams helped the Seminoles finish in first in the team competition with 53 points. Georgia State (45 points) placed second, while South Carolina (33) was third and ULM (31) was fourth.

FSU's performance was the perfect tune-up in the last regular season event before the AVCA National Championships from May 2-4.

"We got what we were hoping for which was to win the team cup and to win both divisions," Florida State head coach Danalee Corso said. "We invited some of the best teams in the East in order to help prepare for the National Championships. I am very pleased. They battled hard."

Davis and Pardon will head to the National Championships with a nearly-perfect 36-1 record after a weekend where they were never really tested and did not drop a set.

"Coming into this weekend we had a domination mentality," Pardon said. "We weren't going to allow any teams to beat us."

It was a fitting performance on Senior Day for Davis as well as teammate Fatma Yildirim, who finished second with her partner junior Sarah Wickstrom in the Gold Division - which featured the top four seeds at the event. The pair was honored midway through Saturday's competition.

"Aurora and Fatma are going to be missed next year," Corso said. "Leadership and experience are intangibles that are hard to recruit and those two have both. They are also very well-liked by their teammates. It is always tough to lose two great players like that. We still have the National Championships to send them off on a high note."

During two days that featured near constant rain, chilly temperatures and windy weather, the Seminoles never let the conditions affect their play.

Sanchez and Luke entered the weekend with a 6-2 record together, but doubled their win total with a fantastic weekend. The pair only dropped one set all weekend en route to winning the AAA pool.

"The sky is the limit for those two," Corso said. "They've got youth on their side. They need a little bit more experience, but we are getting that with this kind of tournament."

Luke is a setter on the FSU indoor team and Sanchez came all the way from California to be a collegiate sand player. The pair is just now perfecting its chemistry on the court.

"We have become such great friends on and off the court and I think we are communicating really well which is allowing us to play really well together," Luke said.

Junior Melanie Pavels and sophomore Julie Brown placed fourth in the Gold division, while sophomores Kayla Joyce and Lexy Ryan placed just behind Sanchez and Luke in second in the AAA division. Sophomore Annie Montgomery and freshman Julia Thompson placed fourth in the AAA pool, falling in a pair of three-set thrillers.

Sand Volleyball Advances to Third Straight Final Four.

The Seminoles face Hawaii in the National Semifinals.

GULF SHORES, AL - The Florida State sand volleyball team advanced to its third consecutive Final Four, going 2-1 on Friday during Day 1 of competition at the 2014 AVCA Collegiate Sand Volleyball National Championships.

Florida State opened the event by cruising past No. 6 seed Stetson, 5-0, before falling to No. 2 seed Pepperdine, 4-1, in the six-team, double-elimination tournament held on the beaches of Gulf Shores.

The Seminoles rebounded to sweep No. 5 seed Florida International, 5-0, in the afternoon to return to the National Semifinals where FSU will face No. 4 seed Hawaii at 11 a.m. CT on Saturday.

Florida State (18-2) will be seeking its first-ever National Finals appearance (3:30 p.m. CT) in its match with the Rainbow Wahine (20-3).

"We're back in the Final Four and that was one of our goals so that's awesome," Florida State head coach Danalee Corso said. "We played really well in our last match against FIU and we are looking forward to playing tomorrow. Pepperdine is a tough team. They are the only team in the nation that we have played that we haven't beat yet. Hopefully, we can see them in the Finals. I think we match up well with Hawaii, so we are excited about that."

Hawaii defeated FIU, 4-1, and snapped No. 1 seed USC's 21-match win streak with a 3-2 upset victory.

After falling to the Waves, the Seminoles faced FIU in a must-win match to advance to the Semifinals or be knocked out of the tournament.

The Garnet and Gold rose to the occasion, winning in two sets on every court against the Panthers.

Senior Fatma Yildirim and junior Sarah Wickstrom were the top performers for the Seminoles throughout the day as the only duo to go undefeated at 3-0.

The pair of All-Americans did not drop a set on Court 3, routing FIU 21-14, 21-12 and winning tough battles against Pepperdine (21-17, 21-19) and coming back in the second set to upend Stetson (21-18, 22-20). Yildirim had a match-high 31 kills versus the Hatters.

"We played three full games today," Yildirim said. "It's hard to come back after you lose and try to win, but we won every game against FIU, so I'm really proud of my teammates. Sarah is so easy to play with. She is a positive player and I we really play well together. We went undefeated today because she is a great partner. Hopefully, we will go undefeated again tomorrow and win it all."

FSU's No. 1 team of senior Aurora Davis and junior Jace Pardon swept FIU's top duo of Jessica Gehrke and Marina Boulanger 21-11, 21-13, while junior Stephanie Pellitteri and sophomore Kristina Pellitteri stormed past the Panthers on Court 2, 21-11, 21-13.

Both top pairs finished 2-1 on the day with close losses to Pepperdine.

Davis and Pardon went step for step with the Waves' top duo of Kellye Larsen and Kellie Woolever but were edged in the end 21-19, 21-19.

The Pellitteri sisters fought hard on Court 2 versus Pepperdine, winning an epic, back-and-forth first set 28-26 against the No. 2 tandem of Lara Dykstra and Becca Strehlow, before dropping the next two sets, 21-19, 15-9.

"It was tough to lose that first game," Kristina Pellitteri said. "It's double-elimination so we had to come back and win that final game. We played amazing against FIU. It's really exciting to be going back to the Final Four and be able to keep that streak going. It was win or go home and we stepped up."

Junior Melanie Pavels and sophomore Julie Brown also won on Court 4 versus the Panthers, 21-19, 21-18, while freshmen Sierra Sanchez and Hailey Luke were impressive in winning 26-24, 21-15 on Court 5 to complete the end-of-day sweep against FIU.

"Hawaii beat FIU 4-1, so I really wanted to beat (FIU) 5-0, and we did," Corso said. "That was huge. It was just the second time we have lost all season. We aren't used to losing. We just said `let's shake this off and look ahead.'

"We haven't faced Hawaii yet this year, but they've been playing really well. We definitely can win."

Florida State's only other meeting against Hawaii came during the inaugural 2012 sand volleyball campaign when the Seminoles defeated the Rainbow Wahine twice (4-1, 4-1) in a doubleheader in Tallahassee, Fla.

The Seminoles fell to the Waves for the second straight season in Gulf Shores. Every match was a battle, however.

The 5-0 victory over Stetson gives the Seminoles a 4-0 record all-time against the Hatters with every win coming via sweep.

After falling to the Waves, the Seminoles faced FIU in a must-win match to advance to the Semifinals or be knocked out of the tournament.

The Garnet and Gold rose to the occasion, winning in two sets on every court against the Panthers.

Senior Fatma Yildirim and junior Sarah Wickstrom were the top performers for the Seminoles throughout the day as the only duo to go undefeated at 3-0.

The pair of All-Americans did not drop a set on Court 3, routing FIU 21-14, 21-12 and winning tough battles against Pepperdine (21-17, 21-19) and coming back in the second set to upend Stetson (21-18, 22-20). Yildirim had a match-high 31 kills versus the Hatters.

"We played three full games today," Yildirim said. "It's hard to come back after you lose and try to win, but we won every game against FIU, so I'm really proud of my teammates. Sarah is so easy to play with. She is a positive player and I we really play well together. We went undefeated today because she is a great partner. Hopefully, we will go undefeated again tomorrow and win it all."

FSU's No. 1 team of senior Aurora Davis and junior Jace Pardon swept FIU's top duo of Jessica Gehrke and Marina Boulanger 21-11, 21-13, while junior Stephanie Pellitteri and sophomore Kristina Pellitteri stormed past the Panthers on Court 2, 21-11, 21-13.

Both top pairs finished 2-1 on the day with close losses to Pepperdine.

Davis and Pardon went step for step with the Waves' top duo of Kellye Larsen and Kellie Woolever but were edged in the end 21-19, 21-19.

The Pellitteri sisters fought hard on Court 2 versus Pepperdine, winning an epic, back-and-forth first set 28-26 against the No. 2 tandem of Lara Dykstra and Becca Strehlow, before dropping the next two sets, 21-19, 15-9.

"It was tough to lose that first game," Kristina Pellitteri said. "It's double-elimination so we had to come back and win that final game. We played amazing against FIU. It's really exciting to be going back to the Final Four and be able to keep that streak going. It was win or go home and we stepped up."

Junior Melanie Pavels and sophomore Julie Brown also won on Court 4 versus the Panthers, 21-19, 21-18, while freshmen Sierra Sanchez and Hailey Luke were impressive in winning 26-24, 21-15 on Court 5 to complete the end-of-day sweep against FIU.

"Hawaii beat FIU 4-1, so I really wanted to beat (FIU) 5-0, and we did," Corso said. "That was huge. It was just the second time we have lost all season. We aren't used to losing. We just said `let's shake this off and look ahead.'

"We haven't faced Hawaii yet this year, but they've been playing really well. We definitely can win."

Florida State's only other meeting against Hawaii came during the inaugural 2012 sand volleyball campaign when the Seminoles defeated the Rainbow Wahine twice (4-1, 4-1) in a doubleheader in Tallahassee, Fla.

The Seminoles fell to the Waves for the second straight season in Gulf Shores. Every match was a battle, however.

The 5-0 victory over Stetson gives the Seminoles a 4-0 record all-time against the Hatters with every win coming via sweep.

"This is what we came to do," FSU head coach Danalee Corso said. "We know we will win championships at some point. We have everything it takes here at Florida State. This is one step closer. We have nothing to lose later this afternoon. We are going to stay loose and have fun.

"We fought so hard today. It shows the heart we have. The team is ready."

FSU fell to Pepperdine, 4-1, in a close match on Friday, but rebounded to cruise past FIU, 5-0, later that afternoon to advance to the Noles' third straight Final Four.

Against Hawaii, senior Fatma Yildirim and junior Sarah Wickstrom zipped to a two-set victory to give FSU a 1-0 lead.

Pavels drilled an ace for the game and match clinching point, 15-7 in the third set, that put FSU in front 3-0 and sent Florida State to the National Championship Final.

"This is what we have been working for, for three years - all those morning practices...all of the lifting," Pavels said. "Everything has led up to this moment. We are playing for a National Championship. It doesn't get better.

"After dropping the second set, Julie and I put it all out on the court and we were able to get that `W'."

All-Americans senior Aurora Davis and Jace Pardon also won in three sets in a battle on Court 1, while freshmen Sierra Sanchez and Hailey Luke dropped a tough three-set nail-biter on Court 5.

FSU Claims Runner-Up at National Championship.

The Seminoles fell 3-2 to Pepperdine in their first National Finals appearance.

GULF SHORES, AL - The Florida State sand volleyball team finished runner-up at the 2014 AVCA Collegiate Sand Volleyball National Championships on Saturday afternoon.

The third-seeded Seminoles dropped a hard-fought battle to No. 2 Pepperdine, 3-2, in their first-ever National Championship Finals appearance in front of nearly 1,000 fans on the beaches of Gulf Shores.

In a staggered start format where just two games were played on the courts at a time, the match was tied 2-2 and came down to the final contest between the No. 2 pairs of Florida State's Stephanie Pellitteri and Kristina Pellitteri and Pepperdine's Lara Dykstra and Becca Strehlow.

The Waves' duo picked up the first set 24-22 with an ace in a back-and-forth frame that featured 10 ties. Pepperdine pulled away in the second set to win 21-17 and claim the 2014 national title.

"For the sport to grow, we wanted to create drama and we did," Florida State head coach Danalee Corso said. "It was 2-2 down to the wire. Every shot mattered. I'm really proud of our team and the way we handled the pressure. Pepperdine had been to the championship match each year and this was our first time in that position. We'll be more prepared now. We're bummed we didn't win, but I'm proud we took second out of all the teams in the country. It's our best finish yet."

The Seminoles finish the 2014 season 19-3 after going 3-2 at the National Championships, falling only to the Waves.

The Pellitteri sisters and Florida State's No. 1 duo of senior Aurora Davis and junior Jace Pardon have one more day of competition on Sunday beginning at 8 a.m. CT in the single-elimination 16-team National Pairs Championship. Davis and Pardon are the No. 2 seed, while the Pellitteri's are the No. 8 seed.

"We couldn't have asked for a more dramatic ending," junior Sarah Wickstrom said. "It was a tough loss, but we did our thing all weekend. We came up just short. We showed that an East Coast team can win this. We were so close. It gives us more motivation. We are really going to work hard next year and hopefully come out on top."

The Seminoles fell to the Waves, 4-1, on Friday and advanced to the National Semifinals by beating FIU later that day, 5-0, in the loser's bracket.

In its third straight appearance in the National Semifinals, FSU finally advanced to the Finals by taking down Hawaii, 4-1 on Saturday morning.

The showdown with Pepperdine was close from the start and opened with Flights 4 and 5 on the courts.

FSU's No. 4 team of junior Melanie Pavels and sophomore Julie Brown avenged a two-set loss to Pepperdine's Emily Cook and Katie Messing on Friday by beating that same Waves' pair in two sets when it mattered most in the opening National Championship game. Pavels had three key aces, while Brown provided several timely blocks and kills en route to the 21-14, 24-22 win that put the Seminoles in front 1-0.

"Our match was really close in the beginning," Brown said. "We wanted to win in two. They got a couple of serves on us and we said `No. This is not happening.' We slowed ourselves down and then refocused our energy on winning 1-2."

Freshmen Sierra Sanchez and Hailey Luke battled hard in the Flight 5 game, but ultimately dropped a 21-19, 23-21 contest to Pepperdine's Sophie Asperey and Victoria Adelhelm.

The Seminoles' No. 3 pair of senior Fatma Yildirim and Wickstrom gave the Garnet and Gold a 2-1 lead by taking down the Waves' third team of Delaney Knudsen and Caitlin Racich with consistent defense and some devastating offense, 21-19, 21-15.

Yildirim, a fifth-year senior, closed out her career by putting it all on the line, constantly putting up a big block and providing a steady stream of powerful kills each match. Yildirim was so dominant that she had an unheard-of 31 kills in the tournament's opening match against Stetson.

She and Wickstrom were the only FSU team to go undefeated on the weekend, finishing 5-0.

Davis and Pardon came very close to clinching the Seminoles' first sand volleyball title against Pepperdine's top duo of Kelley Larsen and Kellie Woolever, pushing the Waves pair to a third set.

After dropping the first set 21-19, Davis and Pardon dominated the second set 21-11. The two tandems traded points in the third set until Pepperdine pulled away with the game tied 11-11 and won 15-13 to tie the match 2-2.

The Pellitteri sisters fought hard against Dykstra and Strehlow, coming back in the first set to tie the battle at 21-21 before losing 24-22.

The sisters were even with the Waves in the second set until a quick 3-0 run gave Pepperdine a four-point advantage (17-13) it would not relinquish in the 21-17 second set victory.

"This year felt different," Corso said. "We've been ready for weeks. The team is starting to take ownership and realizing we have to work harder to be No. 1. We are holding ourselves accountable and that's the culture we need to have to be a championship team. We've seen what it takes, and now we'll be more ready to win. We're all competitive. We're happy to get second, but we aren't satisfied."

Davis, Pardon Reach Semifinals, Earn All-America Honors.

Aurora Davis and Jace Pardon advanced to the Pairs National Semifinals on Sunday.

GULF SHORES, AL - A day after leading the Florida State sand volleyball team to the Team National Championship Finals, senior Aurora Davis and junior Jace Pardon collected a couple more accomplishments on Sunday.

Florida State's No. 1 pair advanced to the Pairs National Championship Semifinals and both earned their second All-America honors in the process.

Davis and Pardon defeated Stetson's Kaley Melville and Kaylee Anderson, 21-12, 21-9 in the first round of the 16-team single-elimination bracket on the beaches of Gulf Shores and followed with a quick 21-8, 21-15 win over ULM's Zuzana Markova and Marcela Araya in the quarterfinals.

The Seminoles duo fell to Hawaii's Brittany Tiegs and Emily Cook, 21-18, 21-16, in the semifinals.

"They laid it on the line for the team today," Florid State head coach Danalee Corso said of her top pair. "This just wasn't their day today. I'm still so proud of them. Jace will get another crack at it next year. We will send Aurora off with a third-place finish which is great. They played awesome the whole year. I'm proud of everything this team has accomplished this season."

Davis and Pardon actually defeated Tiegs and Cook in three sets on Saturday in the team semifinals to help send the Seminoles to their first-ever National Championship Finals.

After a tough three-set match that went down to the wire against Pepperdine's top pair late Saturday and the earlier pairs tournament matches Sunday morning, Davis and Pardon ran out of gas against the Rainbow Wahine pair.

The FSU tandem was tied 12-12 in the first set with Tiegs and Cook until an 8-1 run gave the Hawaii pair the first set (21-18).

Still, the Seminoles fought hard in set two behind several great cut shots from Pardon and timely kills from Davis. The Garnet and Gold pair took a 14-13 lead in the second set after a big Pardon kill followed a Davis ace. Hawaii used another big run to take control, however, and moved in front 19-15 before closing out the match 21-16.

Davis and Pardon made short work of their opponents in the earlier rounds, opening up the first set in front 10-1 against ULM's Markova and Araya In the quarterfinals and dominating the Hatters top pair in the opening round.

On the season, Pardon and Davis finished with a spectacular 41-4 record en route to All-America accolades.

"It means a lot to be an All-American," Davis said. "There are a ton or good athletes out here. The competition is so good. It's anyone's game at any time. It's tough because we beat (Hawaii) yesterday.

"We had two Final Four appearances this weekend. We barely lost the National Championship. It says a lot about our team and how far we have come."

Pardon also earned All-America honors in 2013, while Davis captured the honor in 2012.

Davis will go down in history as a true leader and three-time captain of the inaugural sand volleyball team, pointing Florida State in the path to greatness right from the start of the sport at the collegiate level.

Florida State's No. 2 team of junior Stephanie Pellitteri and sophomore Kristina Pellitteri also competed in the Pairs Championship, but fell to LMU's No. 1 team of Betsi Metter and Litara Keil in two hard fought 22-20, 22-20 sets.

Trailing 20-17 in set two, the Pellitteri sisters showed the same heart they've had all season long and tied the match at 20-20 on a Nina Pellitteri ace.

The pair played at the No. 5 position last season at the National Championship but put in enough hard work to improve to the No. 2 spot this year and finished with a solid 25-8 record.

"We had a great season," Stephanie Pellitteri said. "We worked really hard - our whole team. We were two points from taking it all in the team championship. Coming from playing the five spot last year to playing the two spot this year, Nina and I have grown so much. It was a great learning experience for us. We know what it feels like being one of the top teams."
