BOCA RATON, FL - The Florida Atlantic volleyball team will return home from a four-match road swing with two matches this weekend. FAU (6-15, 1-9 Sun Belt) had a difficult weekend, losing matches to both ULM and North Texas in four sets.
On Friday night, the Owls will face Middle Tennessee (7-20, 4-6) in a match that starts at 6:30 p.m. The Blue Raiders beat the Owls in four sets earlier this season in Murfreesboro despite 15 kills from Alessia Pizzoccheri.
Fans in attendance may also have a chance to witness history as senior libero Cintia Nightingale enters the weekend just 29 digs shy of becoming the school's all-time leader in that category. Nightingale is also on pace to become the first player in school history to lead the team in digs for four straight seasons.
Tickets for both of this weekend's matches are available for purchase by calling the FAU Athletics Ticket Office at 1-866-FAU-OWLS.
