TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (WTXL) - Football wasn't the only Florida State sport practicing this week in Tallahassee, as the Seminole soccer ladies are hard at work as they look to defend a National title.
FSU ended last season on a 21-match win streak, capped off by winning the National Championship.
The Noles play three top twenty opponents in their first five games, and say while they know there is a target on their back, they agree there's no pressure because winning is always a priority.
"Once you win a National Championship, anything short of winning a National Championship isn't going to feel so good," said head caoch Mark Krikorian. "Coming up short previously was added motivation. Right now, every team in the country is undefeated. It's still a little bit early to make to many determinations."
"We kind of know what's expected of us as a team and individually, everyone kind of knows their roles," said senior forward Cheyna Williams, who along with Isabella Schmid is up for the MAC Hermann award. "I would say as long as we do what we're supposed to do, handle our parts, and everything else will pretty much fall in to place."
Florida State kicks off the season on the road on August 21st.
