With a 3-0 victory over the Florida State Seminoles in the season finale on Friday, Miami volleyball (5-3, 5-3 ACC) concluded what has easily been the program’s best overall season in recent memory.
The Canes lost the first match of the series in five sets, but rebounded and swept the Tigers in the series finale, winning each set by no less than six points.
The Hurricanes won both matches in four sets and have now improved to a 3-1 overall record for the season.
Miami was the underdog in the first match and narrowly escaped with a fifth-set victory to upset Georgia Tech, but the Yellow Jackets’ experience and roster depth was able to overcome an early Miami lead in the second match and hand the Hurricanes their first loss of 2020.
“A lot of teams were more mature than us this year and that’s been tough.”
“We don’t have to play our best game, we just have to manage the edge and flow a little better. I thought we did that.”
