FNU TAKE HOME MULTIPLE AWARDS AT USCAA ANNUAL BANQUET

Women's Volleyball team at the USCAA Annual Banquet 2VIRGINIA BEACH, VA – Florida National University Athletics Department has created a significant amount of buzz in the national spectrum this year, quickly rising to the top of their conference. With all fall sports represented at the USCAA National Championship Women’s Volleyball , Men and Women’s soccer and Men and Women’s Cross Country teams are currently in Virginia Beach, VA battling for USCAA supremacy. After a season filled with both successes and adversities, our athletes and their coaches were rewarded with a night to momentarily forget the competition and simply celebrate their hard work. On the evening of Thursday, November 7th, our athletes dressed to impress and attended the USCAA Awards Banquet. The Conquistadors won big, taking home multiple honors.
