BOCA RATON, FL - The Florida Atlantic University volleyball team will begin the Fernanda Nelson era this weekend when they head to DeLand, FL for the Stetson DeLand Classic.
The Owls are coming off of a 3-26 campaign in 2011 and are looking to qualify for the Sun Belt Conference tournament for the first time since 2006. FAU won three of its four matches in its last trip to the Stetson Classic in 2010.
Senior libero Cintia Nightingale has led the team in digs each of the last three years and is on pace to become the school's all-time leader in digs by the end of the season.
