ST. PETERSBURG, FLORIDA – Florida Tech (8-3, 0-1) fell in straight sets to Eckerd (7-4, 1-0) Friday night in its Sunshine State Conference opener at the McArthur Center. Set scores were 25-21, 25-16 and 25-17.
In the first set, FIT scored seven straight points to take a 14-7 lead over the Tritons. Eckerd, however, battled back and Katarina Milojevic’s kill broke a 16-all score. From that point, the home team did not look back.
The Tritons never allowed the Panthers to take a lead in the second and third sets.
FIT will now return to Melbourne to host No. 7 Tampa Saturday at 4 p.m. at the Clemente Center.
