BREVARD COUNTY • MELBOURNE, FLORIDA – With the fall semester underway, the anticipation for the 2015-16 athletics year is beginning to become palpable.

For Florida Tech’s volleyball team, its wait is almost over as the Panthers will play their first preseason scrimmage of the 2015 season against the crosstown, Eastern Florida State College Titans.

The contest with the Titans is set for Wednesday, Aug. 19 at 6 p.m. at the Charles & Ruth Clemente Center.
