national champ?

Derry native Mark Krikorian has guided the Florida State women’s soccer team to a No. 3 national ranking. Until recently, the Seminoles were No. 1. Krikorian, who starred at Pinkerton and St. Anselm’s (Class of ‘83), has guided the Noles to a top-10 finish in each of his seven years in Tallahassee.

FSU’s first loss was Oct. 18 at Boston College, obviously spoiling Krikorian’s homecoming. FSU got revenge with a 4-0 win over the Eagles Sunday in the ACC tourney quarterfinals.
