“When you play the No. 1 team in the country, you know they are well coached, German (Del Valle) is a great coach and he has been able to establish the program. it will come down to strategy and finding their weakness,” Eastern Florida State College women’s volleyball coach Carmelo Eleutiza said.
“My biggest concern is being able to attack those weaknesses and if it is close can we close out big matches. We have to put pressure on them, when you play teams like this, you have to go for it because all of the pressure is on them.”
Eastern Florida State College has won three straight and is 7-5 overall. The Titans are led by Anaeli Perea Martin who has 123 digs this season.
