FORT MYERS, Fla. – The FGCU volleyball team looks to get back on the winning track this weekend when they head to Nashville to face Lipscomb and Belmont this Friday and Saturday.

The Lady Bisons (18-3, 13-0 A-Sun) will host Florida Gulf Coast (11-9, 10-3) at Allen Arena on Friday at 7:30 p.m. and the Bruins (11-12, 7-6) welcome the Eagles into the Curb Event Center on Saturday at 3 p.m.

Lipscomb defeated the Eagles 3-0 in Fort Myers earlier this season, evening the all-time record between the two schools at 2-2. The Lady Bisons come into Friday’s match with an RPI ranking of 57th nationally, the highest ranking of any A-Sun school. Against the Bruins, FGCU came out on top in a five-set thriller inside Alico Arena just over a month ago. Jelena Simic (Lazarevac, Serbia) and Anna Wagner (Lincoln, Neb.) each recorded double-doubles in the victory over Belmont. Both matches can be viewed live online by logging onto www.ASun.TV.
