ST. AUGUSTINE, Fla. - Georgia State beach volleyball is on a roll! The Panthers swept host North Florida and Spring Hill College Sunday to remain perfect on opening weekend.

After defeating UNC Wilmington and College of Charleston, GSU (4-0, 2-0 CCSA) carried its momentum over to Sunday and dominated at St. Augustine Beach.

"Opening weekend was exciting and challenging," head coach Beth Van Fleet said. "The level of play increases each year and this weekend did not disappoint. As for our team, yesterday we focused on adapting to our opponents' tendencies and today we had the opportunity to refine our ball control in the wind. We are working to make small improvements every time we step into the sand and can't wait to get back to training and matches this week."

The Panthers are now a perfect 6-0 all-time against the Ospreys. GSU’s sweep of Spring Hill College marked the schools’ first-ever regular season meeting.

Georgia State returns home to host Austin Peay and Mercer on Tuesday, March 7th at 1 p.m. and 5 p.m. respectively. Admission is free to the public. Come out and cheer on the Panthers this Tuesday.
