WOMEN'S NEWS ... There are only four days until the women's season kicks off. Many of the top teams were in action over the weekend.

* ACC teams racked up a string of impressive victories ...

-- Florida State crushed Georgia, 5-1, with goals coming from five different players. Tori Huster, Becky Edwards (penalty), Lauren Switzer, Amanda DaCosta and Breezy Hupp. (Listen to FSU coach Mark Krikorian here on what he liked about the young Seminoles.)

-- Georgetown is expected to be a Big East contender, but the Hoya were no match for Virginia, which won, 5-1, Sunday night at Klockner Stadium. Junior Meghan Lenczyk had a hat trick within 33 minutes of the 110-minute contest, and senior Jess Rostedt had a pair of assists.

-- West Virginia, favored to win its division in the Big East, fell to visiting Maryland, picked eighth in the ACC preseason poll, 2-0, on a pair of first-half goals.

-- Clemson, picked 10th in the ACC preseason rankings, buried Alabama, 4-0,

* Despite the loss of Kerri Hanks, Brittany Bock and others, Notre Dame showed it will have plenty of firepower, scoring three times in the first 14 minutes against Virginia before the Cavs rallied late to earn a 3-3 tie in a game played Friday in Maple City, Mich. Sophomore Melissa Henderson scored twice, while junior Erica Iantorno and sophomore Jessica Schuveiller each recorded a pair of assists for the Irish.
