Four Seminoles earn All-ACC honors.

Sophomore Carly Wynn was the lone Florida State player named to the first team.

COLLEGE PARK, MD - The third-seeded Florida State softball team attended the annual ACC Championship banquet hosted by the University of Maryland in the Comcast Center on Wednesday night where the 2008 All-ACC team and yearly awards were announced. Sophomore Carly Wynn earned first-team honors while seniors Whitney Buckmon, Tiffany McDonald and Brittany Osmon were selected to the second team.

A first-time honoree, Wynn currently leads FSU with a .372 average, second best in the ACC, after 45 starts this season. The Sharpsburg, Ga., native also ranks first on her team with 37 runs scored and a .518 slugging percentage. For conference-only games, Wynn batted a .404 average to top the league.

Buckmon and McDonald were honored for the second consecutive season with All-ACC second team accolades. Buckmon is just behind Wynn on the Seminole squad with her .350 average and leads the team with 23 stolen bases, seventh best in the ACC. The Stone Mountain, Ga., native's 33 runs scored is ninth in the ACC for the regular season and third on her team.

McDonald has had an impressive senior season, leading the pitching staff with 16 wins in 169.2 innings pitched and 27 appearances. A native of Belfair, Wash., she has 203 strikeouts so far in 2008. In the tournament this week, McDonald needs just two strikeouts to break the current all-time record of 899 set by Jessica van der Linden in 2004.

Earning her first All-ACC nod, Osmon leads FSU with nine doubles, six home runs and 41 RBI's which ranks her third in the conference. The San Diego, Calif., native has also moved onto the top ten lists at Florida State in the putouts, home runs and RBI categories. She is currently third with 1,181 putouts, tied for seventh with 16 home runs and ninth with 111 career RBI's.

Florida State enters the fight for the 2008 ACC title as it takes on sixth-seed Boston College at 10:00 a.m. tomorrow at College Park, Md. Live stats during the entire tournament can be found on Seminoles.com and all games will be available on live video streaming through ACCSelect.com.


Coach Graf Retires From Coaching.

After 30 years and more than 1400 victories, Dr. JoAnne Graf will now teach.

June 15, 2008

Florida State Director of Athletics Randy Spetman announced today the retirement of Dr. JoAnne Graf, head softball coach since 1979. With 1,437 victories to her credit in her 30-year career, no coach in the history of college softball has won more games than Coach Graf.

"What Coach Graf has meant to Florida State and its softball program the past 30 years is beyond words," Spetman said. "We thank her for her tremendous dedication to our university, our athletics department and our student-athletes."

Graf will begin a new chapter in her life in the fall when she starts teaching in Florida State's School of Education.

"I earned my PhD anticipating that one day when my coaching career was over that I would move into teaching," Graf said. "The opportunity to join Florida State's outstanding Sport Administration faculty presented itself and I decided to accept the invitation to join them. I've been very fortunate to have both played at Florida State and then coached 30 years as a head coach at my alma mater. It is a privilege that very few people are able to experience. I will miss the players, the coaches and the staff but I feel that at some point, your coaching career ends. We have a solid group of players returning plus some exciting newcomers so I feel very comfortable that I am leaving the program in very good shape."

The first collegiate softball coach to earn 1400 victories, Graf's numerous achievements with Florida State softball include AIAW slowpitch national championships in 1981 and 1982, seven trips to the Women's College World Series, with the first coming in 1986 - just four years after FSU went to NCAA fastpitch softball, 21 NCAA Regional appearances and 10 Atlantic Coast Conference titles.

Named the ACC Coach of the Year six times, Graf's coaching has produced players that have earned 25 All-America awards, 96 All-Region awards and 74 players who have earned All-ACC honors. Over the past 30 years, the Seminoles have averaged 48 wins per year and have recorded 25 seasons of 40 or more victories, 15 seasons of 50 or more victories and three seasons where the team surpassed the 60-win mark. Graf was pegged the South Region Coach of the Year in 1986 and she and her staff earned Southeast Coaching Staff of the Year honors in 2001, 2002 and 2004.

Florida State's ACC dominance under Graf was never illustrated more clearly than in 1996 when 23 Seminoles were named to the ACC's 50th Anniversary softball team. FSU players comprised 43 percent of the 53-player roster.

On April 2, 2005, Florida State University President Dr. T.K. Wetherell officially renamed the softball stadium "JoAnne Graf Field at the Seminole Softball Complex," making her among only two active softball coaches with fields named after them.

"With a lot of hard work and determination, Coach Graf has made Seminole softball what it is today," Wetherell said. "I commend Coach Graf for her 30 years of service to the university and our athletics department and look forward to continuing our relationship with her as she becomes a member of our faculty."

One of the most prolific coaches in collegiate softball, Graf will conclude her career having won 75 percent of her games (1437-478-6), including a 1218-425-6 (.740) mark in NCAA Division I play. Florida State's average of 50.75 wins per year since beginning NCAA play is tops in the country.

Graf is a 1975 graduate of Florida State. In 1992, she added "Dr." to her name after completing her doctorate degree in athletic administration at FSU.

Florida State Takes Down Southern Miss in First Game of the Early Bird Tournament.

The Seminoles earn Coach Graf her 1,400 career win against Golden Eagles.

TALLAHASSEE, FL - For the second consecutive year, Florida State opened the 2008 campaign with an eight-run rule game as the Seminoles took an 11-3 victory over Southern Miss in six innings on day one of the Early Bird Tournament (Feb. 8). For head coach JoAnne Graf that was career win 1,400.

The victory went to sophomore Terese Gober who matched her career high strikeouts with 10 after five innings and allowed only one earned run on two hits with two walks. Taking the loss for Southern Miss was Samantha Davis as the Golden Eagles end the day 1-1.

Eight of nine Florida State's lineup recorded runs with four Seminoles notching two apiece. Senior Whitney Buckmon went 3-for-4 with a career-tying two runs while bringing her career total stolen bases to 46 with one against SMU.

Leading the batters was freshman Ashley Stager who went 3-for-3 with two runs and one RBI in her debut game. Fellow fresh face Allison Collins made a statement as she pounded her first homerun as a Seminole, finished the game 3-for-2 with one run and three RBI's.

Senior Brittany Osmon went 2-for-4 and tied Collins with three RBI's and two runs scored.

Florida State got off to a commanding lead as four runs would score before the second inning. Buckmon started off the scoring for the Seminoles followed by junior Jessica Gilmore who got on base on an error by the short stop. Stager and Osmon would round out the scoring in the first inning.

The runs would come in fours again as the fifth inning was underway. Stager hit a double with one out on the board and would score the first run of the inning as Osmon advanced to second on the throw. Sophomore catcher Robin Ahrberg would also get to second on the throw, bringing up Collins with runners on second and third. A homerun down the left field line drove in three RBI's and the Seminoles would end the inning with an 8-1 lead.

Entering the lineup for Gober at the top of the sixth was freshman pitcher Sarah Hamilton. Southern Miss scored two earned runs off the Tallahassee native in the top of the sixth, but the Seminoles answered with three runs to end the game early. Buckmon would once again get on base as the lead-off hitter with a singled bunt, then 2007's ACC Rookie of the Year Monica Montez drew a walk. A single by Gilmore would advance Buckmon and Montez as a single by Stager brought in the first RBI. With runners on second a third, a fly out to centerfield by Osmon would bring in Montez and advance Gilmore who would score the winning run on an error by SMU's short stop Kristin Chaney.

Seminoles 1-1 as Day One of the Early Bird Tournament Comes to an End.

Florida State dropped a 4-3 loss to Louisville to finish the day 1-1.

TALLAHASSEE, FL - Coming off a run-ruled win against SMU earlier in the day, the Seminoles were unable to hold off Louisville as they fell 4-3 to bring day one of the Early Bird Tournament to a close on JoAnne Graf Field. Florida State will start Saturday at 1-1 while the Cardinals maintain a perfect 2-0.

Taking the loss for Florida State was junior south-paw Melissa May who struck-out two and gave up only six hits, four runs while walking two. Winning the game for Louisville was Mandi Rodriguez with the save going to Kassie Stanfill.

The runs started coming in the top of the third as Louisville put the first run on the board. The Seminoles would answer as senior Whitney Buckmon scored off an RBI from freshman Ashley Stager. Buckmon led FSU at bat, going 3-for-3 with one RBI and one run. At the end of three complete innings the score was tied one apiece.

The Cardinals would extend their lead in the top of the fourth as a Seminole error loaded the bases with one out. Three unearned runs would cross home plate and push Louisville to a 4-1 lead.

Sophomore Terese Gober entered the lineup for May at the top of the sixth as she faced six batters and allowed no hits and no runs. The Seminoles made a comeback in the bottom of the inning as they scored off of runs from two Brittanys; senior Brittany Osmon and freshman Brittany Joseph. A sacrifice fly to left field by newcomer Allison Collins brought Osmon home while Joseph scored single by Buckmon up the leftfield line.

Florida State was down only one run in the top of the seventh with Gober looking to get the save. The first batter struck out looking which set the tone for the final two outs which came in the next two at-bats. A put out from third to first and a fly out to Buckmon in center field gave the Seminoles a chance to take it home.

The Seminoles would record only one run off a single by Osmon in the final inning with two out and junior catcher Robin Ahrberg up to swing. With two balls and one strike, Ahrberg got a piece of the fourth pitch -hich flied out to right field for the third out.

Seminoles drop 1-3 loss to Troy in day two of Early Bird Tournament.

Despite the loss, Florida State advances to championship game with Louisville.

TALLAHASSEE, FL - Florida State was handed its second loss of the Early Bird Tournament after dropping a 3-1 decision to Troy on day two on JoAnne Graf Field. The loss was the first against Troy since 2006 when Florida State split a double-header with the Trojans at home. The Seminoles will head into the championship round against undefeated Louisville with a 1-2 record.

Despite taking the loss, sophomore Terese Gober broke her career high strikeouts after notching 12 at the end of seven against Troy. Gober ended the game with four hits, two runs and one error and walked two.

Troy was strong out of the gate, scoring two runs in the first inning. Florida State would not answer until the seventh inning as pinch runner Melissa May scored on an RBI single by senior Kelly Langston.

Leading the Seminoles in hitting was Langston who went 1-for-2 with the lone RBI of the game. Sophomore Monica Montez and freshman Allison Collins both went 1-for-3 while senior Whitney Buckmon ended the game 1-for-4.

Freshman Kristie McConn started things off for FSU in the third as she reached first on an error by Troy's Hillary Hughes. A sacrifice bunt by Langston advanced McConn to second with fellow freshman Brittany Joseph up to bat. Another error moved Joseph to second and advanced McConn to third. With runners on second and third, Buckmon stepped up and singled to fill the bases.

The Seminoles had one out with Montez up to bat and Jessica Gilmore on deck. Montez struck out swinging leaving it up to Gilmore to bring the runners home. Florida State was unable to do anything with the situation as Buckmon was the third out on a fielder's choice to end the inning.

Troy's third run would score on an error by short stop Ashley Stager in the top of the fifth. Stager overthrew to first baseman Brittany Osmon which brought Kaitlin Kenney across the plate for the Trojans with one left on base.

The solo run for Florida State came in the bottom of the seventh off the RBI from Langston that brought May home. The Seminoles would end seven with one run, two hits, no errors and one left on base.

FLORIDA STATE 6, LOUISVILLE 4
02/09/2008, TALLAHASSEE, FL, Early Bird Tournament

From the FSU Website, seminoles.com.

Florida State crowned champions of Early Bird Tournament.

A three-run homer in the top of the seventh by Brittany Osmon clinched the win for the Seminoles.

TALLAHASSEE, FL - Despite the loss to Troy earlier in the day, Florida State kept Louisville from a perfect weekend with a 6-4 win on JoAnne Graf Field as the Early Bird Tournament came to a close Saturday, February 9. Senior and tournament MVP Brittany Osmon's seventh inning home run secured the victory and the tournament crown as the Seminoles advance to 2-2 on the season.

In the top of the seventh, Florida State had runners on first and second with two outs and the score tied at three apiece with Osmon up to bat. With an 0-1 count, Osmon took a swing and knocked a bomb 200-feet over the right field wall for the second FSU homerun of the tournament. Three RBI's would score as the Seminoles pulled ahead 6-4 with a pop-up to second by Robin Ahrberg ending the inning for the Seminoles.

"I love it, that's what you play for," Osmon said. "I wasn't going out there to hit a homerun; I just wanted to help the team by hitting the ball hard and trying to get a base hit. It was pretty sweet that I got it over the fence."

With FSU ahead by three, the Cardinals had three outs left to stay in the game as they started the bottom of the seventh with a double by Kristi Cunningham who would score the final run of the game for Louisville.

Taking the win for Florida State was sophomore Terese Gober who pitched seven complete innings in the victory over Louisville, ending the weekend at 2-1. Earlier in the day against Troy, Gober set a new career high of 12 strikeouts and brings her season total to 26 after shutting down three in her second game of the day.

"We had our good and bad moments this weekend," head coach JoAnne Graf said. "We didn't look our best against Troy but I saw a one-hundred percent turn-around against Louisville tonight. They came out aggressive and looked good throughout which is the kind of game I hope to see all season."

Having a strong game in the batter's box was junior Jessica Gilmore who set a new FSU career hits record after going 3-for-4 with two RBI's and two runs scored.

Leading the Seminoles at the end of four games is senior Whitney Buckmon who went 9-for-15 and averaged .600 over the two-day tournament. Buckmon also led the team with two stolen bases one three attempts, bringing her Florida State career total to 47.

FLORIDA STATE 9, FLORIDA A&M 1

From the FSU Website, seminoles.com.

Florida State wins 101st meeting with Florida A&M.

The Seminoles defeated the Rattlers 9-1 in their first meeting this season.

TALLAHASSEE, FL - In the 101st meeting between the teams, Florida State defeated Florida A&M 9-1 at the Seminole Softball Complex on a cold and windy Wednesday night. The win, in a game that counted as a home meeting for the Rattlers, improves the Seminoles' season record to 3-2 and propels the series record to 94-7.

"I think the weather conditions were rough on both teams," Florida State head coach JoAnne Graf said. "We were able to get a hit early in the first inning and that put some pressure on FAMU. But I think both teams held up well in the cold."

Securing the win for FSU was junior Melissa May who pitched the first 3.1 innings. May allowed only three hits and one earned run while walking two and striking out one.

Freshman Sarah Hamilton entered in the fourth after a line drive to May's hand took her out of the game. Hamilton, credited with the save, pitched 3.2 innings allowing only two hits with no runs, two walks and struck out nine batters.

"Sarah really improved tonight from her first performance last weekend," Graf said. "I was excited to see that since we are going to need her in the next few weeks."

Leading the Seminoles in hitting was junior Jessica Gilmore who went 3-for-4 with two hits, bringing her season average to .368. Freshman Ashley Stager had a good night in the batter's box going 2-for-4 with two hits, two RBI's and one stolen base. Stager's average of .438 is currently second on the team behind senior Whitney Buckmon who went 1-for-4 against the Rattlers.

Another freshman on the FSU squad had a big night at the plate. On the first pitch, Allison Collins cranked a solo home run over the centerfield wall in the top of the seventh to score the ninth run of the evening. That homer is the second for Collins who hit the first of the Early Bird Tournament against Southern Miss. Florida State had 11 hits, nine runs and no errors in the victory over FAMU, which had one run, five hits and three errors.

Seminoles drop 5-2 decision to Jacksonville.

Freshman Allison Collins recorded third home run of the season against the Dolphins.

TALLAHASSEE, FL - In its first game of the Seminole Classic, the Florida State softball squad fell 5-2 to in-state rival Jacksonville on JoAnne Graf Field at the Seminole Softball Complex. The Seminoles are now 3-3 on the season but still lead the overall series with the Dolphins 8-4.

Leading the Seminoles in hitting was freshman Allison Collins who hit her third career homer in the top of the fifth to score the first run of the evening for FSU. Collins went 1-for-3 against Jacksonville to improve her season average to .389, good for third on the team.

Shortstop Ashley Stager also went 1-for-3, tripling down the right field line on a full count. Stager, whose .421 batting average is second for FSU, scored the final run of the evening off an RBI single by Brittany Osmon.

FLORIDA STATE 14, BETHUNE-COOKMAN 3
02/16/2008, TALLAHASSEE, FL, Seminole Classic

From the FSU Website, seminoles.com.

Florida State defeats Bethune-Cookman in five.

The Seminoles scored 14 runs on the Wildcats in their second game of the Seminole Classic.

TALLAHASSEE, FL - In day two of the Seminole Classic, the Seminoles defeated Bethune-Cookman 14-3 in five innings on JoAnne Graf Field at the Seminole Softball Complex. It was the first win of the tournament for Florida State, improving the season to 4-3.

Two Seminoles went 4-for-4 against the Wildcats, senior Whitney Buckmon and junior Jessica Gilmore. Buckmon's four hits and four runs for Florida State set new career records and led the squad. Gilmore also notched new personal bests in those categories with four runs and three hits.

Ashley Stager had another stellar day at the plate, going 2-for-2 with a triple in the third and a double in the fourth. The freshman notched two runs and five RBI's, improving her average to .476, second to team-leader Buckmon's .538.

"We came out fired up and ready to play," head coach JoAnne Graf said. "We really showed-up at bat today and I think we looked aggressive throughout the game."

Securing the win for FSU was junior south paw Melissa May, now 2-1 after throwing her first complete game against Bethune-Cookman. May allowed only five hits and three earned, walked two and struck out two.

Freshman Allison Collins, who leads the team with three homeruns this season, notched four RBI's on one hit, scored one run and recorded the solo stolen base of the day for FSU.

Florida State put runs on the board in four of the five innings against the Wildcats who scored one in the first and their final two in the bottom of the fourth.

02/17/2008, TALLAHASSEE, FL, Seminole Classic

Florida State splits final two games of Seminole Classic.

The Seminoles were the runners-up of their second home tournament this season.

TALLAHASSEE, FL - On the final day of the Seminole Classic, Florida State split its two games with a 4-1 win over UAB and a 3-2 loss to Michigan State Sunday on JoAnne Graf Field at the Seminole Softball Complex. The Seminoles were crowned the runners-up of the tournament with a 2-2 record throughout the weekend.

The Seminoles scored the first run of the game in the top of the third against Michigan State which was answered by a Spartan run in the next inning. With the scored tied at one apiece, FSU was able to regain a one-run lead as an RBI single from Allison Collins scored Jessica Gilmore from third.

Florida State would hold the 2-1 lead until the Spartans' last at-bat in the seventh. With two outs and the bases loaded, Michigan State's Kristen Aidem scored on a fielder's choice to tie it up at 2-2. Sophomore Kelly Confer pinch hit for Michigan State and knocked a single into center field to bring the third run home and clinch the victory for the Spartans.

Taking the loss for Florida State was Terese Gober who is now 2-3 thus season. Gober allowed six hits, three runs (only one earned) and struck-out four Spartans.

"Overall I think we lost two games that we should have won this weekend," Florida State head coach JoAnne Graf said. "We are a young team and we made a few key mistakes."

Despite the loss in Sunday's first game, Florida State was able to turn it around and defeat UAB 4-1 in game two and finish second overall in the tournament.

Earning her first win as a Seminole was freshman pitcher Sarah Hamilton who pitched a complete game against the Blazers. The Tallahassee, Fla., native allowed only five hits and one run this afternoon while notching an impressive 11 strikeouts.

"I think Sarah pitched a great game and was very consistent today," Graf said. "She pitched a complete game and keeps getting better every time she's thrown. She did a really good job and I'm proud of her."

The Seminoles were out to a 1-0 lead after three complete innings with senior Whitney Buckmon scoring off a double hit by freshman Ashley Stager. UAB answered that run in the top of the sixth to tie the game with three outs left for FSU.

A single into right field from Brittany Osmon and a walk to Robin Ahrberg put runners on first and second with one out on the board. Next up for the Seminoles was junior Michelle Snyder who was hitting .333 coming into the game. With the count at 2-1, Snyder got a piece of the fourth pitch and sent it over the right field wall sending Osmon and Ahrberg home. Snyder's three-run homer is her first of the season and secured the win for Florida State.

At the end of the three-day Seminole Classic, Michigan State went undefeated at 4-0 while Florida State, Jacksonville and UAB all finished 2-2 and Bethune-Cookman closed out the weekend at 0-4.

Florida State Sweeps Doubleheader At Jacksonville.

The Seminoles allowed only one run in 12 innings against the Dolphins.

JACKSONVILLE, FL - In the first official road game of the season, the Florida State softball team swept a doubleheader against Jacksonville at the JU Softball Complex on Feb. 19. The Seminoles won game one 3-1 and sealed the sweep with a flawless 10-0 victory in game two. Now 11 games into the season, FSU stands at 7-4 while knocking the Dolphins to 6-8.

The winning pitcher in game one was sophomore Terese Gober who is now 3-3 on the season. Gober allowed only four hits, one earned run with two walks while striking out seven Dolphins.

The Seminoles scored the first run in the top of the second as senior Brittany Osmon pounded a homer over the right field wall, her second of the season. Osmon notched her first homerun in the Early Bird Tournament on Feb. 9.

The top of the seventh sealed the win for FSU as junior Michelle Snyder scored on a passed ball, advancing McConn to third. McConn would go on to cross the plate on a sacrifice to the right field from fellow freshman Ashley Stager.

The second game of the evening showcased a fierce Seminole squad, coming out strong and taking down the Dolphins 10-0 in five innings.

Leading FSU at the plate in the second game was sophomore Robin Ahrberg who went 2-for-3 and cranked out her first career home run as a Seminole. The two-run homer scored Allison Collins from second and kick-started the runs in the top of the second. Ahrberg scored a career-high three runs on two hits and three RBI's in the victory.

"It's an amazing feeling to finally get a home run," Ahrberg said. "These two games against Jacksonville were key for us, especially since we lost to them last weekend. We came out tonight and showed them what Florida State is about. It felt good to win; for me and for the team."

Junior Jessica Gilmore and senior Whitney Buckmon both went 2-for-3 in the win. Gilmore scored two runs and drove in one RBI while Buckmon recorded one run and two RBI's. While Gilmore was able to steal a base from JU, Buckmon was caught trying to take second in her first at-bat of the game.

The winning pitcher in game two was freshman Sarah Hamilton who is now 2-0 this season. The Tallahassee, Fla., native adds an impressive eight strikeouts to her résumé while giving up just three hits in the shut-out in Jacksonville. Hamilton leads the pitching staff with a stellar 0.89 ERA after two complete games.

Jacksonville posted a hefty five errors in game two against Florida State. Two such errors happened in the fifth and last inning of the evening, allowing the Seminoles to score two runs. Dolphins' pitcher Jackie Samuels would take the loss after allowing seven earned runs, eight hits and striking out only two.

Seminoles Drop Doubleheader To Tar Heels.

Freshman Allison Collins recorded her fourth homerun of the year in game two against North Carolina.

TALLAHASSEE, FL - In the second day of conference play, the Florida State softball team was unable to pull off a win in a doubleheader against North Carolina on Sunday. The Seminoles, now 8-6/1-2 in the ACC, fell 5-1 in game one and 7-4 in the second game to the Tar Heels on JoAnne Graf Field.

The Seminoles made a late surge in the seventh inning of game two, scoring all four runs in eight at-bats. Freshman heavy-hitter Allison Collins got FSU on the board when she pinch-hit in the fourth spot for Kristie McConn. With one out and runners on first and third, Collins swung at the second pitch and cranked it over the left field wall for her fourth home run of the year. Collins continues to lead the team in homers and RBI's with 16.

Senior Whitney Buckmon would go on to score the final run for Florida State off an RBI single by Ashley Stager. Sophomore Terese Gober, now 4-4, was crediting with the loss in game two after giving up five hits, four runs (two of them earned) and striking out only two.

Freshman Sarah Hamilton took the 5-1 loss in the first game of the day, her first of the season. The Tallahassee, Fla., native gave up five earned runs on three hits and was able to strike out six before Melissa May was brought in to relieve.

Monica Montez scored the Seminoles' lone run in game one and also recorded a hit off Tar Heels' pitcher Danielle Spaulding.

Junior Jessica Gilmore led the weekend series for FSU, going 3-for-9 with one run, one walk and getting on-base three times. Buckmon also went 3-for-9 and scored a run on both days.

Seminole Softball Splits Doubleheader Against Trojans.

Florida State battled back to take game two 3-2 from Troy.

TALLAHASSEE, FL - In the second match-up between the teams this season, Florida State and Troy split a doubleheader on Wednesday night on JoAnne Graf Field. The Trojans took the first game 3-0, but the Seminoles fought back to avoid the sweep with a 3-2 win in game two.

Smashing her previous best for strikeouts was freshman pitcher Sarah Hamilton who struck-out 14 in the second game. Hamilton allowed four hits, an earned run and one walk. Her 1.93 ERA in three complete games tops the Florida State pitching staff.

Leading the Seminoles in the victory was senior Whitney Buckmon who went 1-for-4 with one run. Buckmon continues to top the team with an overall .444 average and brought her season total for stolen bases to 10 after taking one from Troy in the first game.

Despite the loss earlier in the day, three Seminoles were able to get four hits off of Trojan pitcher Ashlyn Williams. Buckmon went 2-for-3 while fellow senior Brittany Osmon had one hit in two at-bats and sophomore Monica Montez also went 1-for-2.

Taking the loss for FSU was sophomore Terese Gober, now 4-5 in 2008. Gober gave up eight hits and three earned runs while striking out seven.

Florida State Finishes Day One Of NFCA Leadoff Classic 2-0.

The Seminoles gave up just four hits as they shutout both UMass and Hofstra.

COLUMBUS, GA - In their first road tournament of the season, the Seminole softball team shutout UMass and Hofstra 6-0 and 1-0, respectively, at the NFCA Leadoff Classic in Columbus, Ga. Florida State improves to 11-7 with senior pitcher Tiffany McDonald notching her first win against the Minutewomen of UMass.

"We're really glad we were able to hold both UMass and Hofstra scoreless," Seminole head coach JoAnne Graf said. "Both of those teams were regional teams last season and are very good offensively this year. We got two big wins today."

Taking the win against UMass was McDonald, now 1-0, who struck out nine, walked four, recorded two assists and allowed only two hits in seven innings.

Credited with the loss against FSU was sophomore Bailey Sanders who allowed five runs, none of them earned, and truck out just three Seminoles after being relieved in the top of the third. Coming in for Sanders was junior Brandice Balschmiter who gave up the only earned run of the game while striking out seven in five innings.

Seniors Whitney Buckmon and Brittany Osmon, sophomore Carly Wynn and freshman Ashley Stager all went 1-for-3 in the win, with Buckmon and Osmon notching one RBI apiece. Sophomore Monica Montez also drove in an RBI as she went 1-for-2 against the Minutewomen.

The Seminoles had very little turn-around time as they headed straight into the match-up with Hofstra, a team that had been receiving votes in the USA Today/NFCA Top-25 weekly poll.

Terese Gober would take the win in the 1-0 shutout against the Pride, striking out 10 and allowing just two hits. The sophomore pitcher is now 5-5 on the season with 71 strikeouts and a 1.86 ERA.

Buckmon would lead FSU on offense, going 1-for-3 and scoring the solo run in the bottom of the first on an error by Hofstra's first baseman. Wynn, Montez and sophomore Robin Ahrberg would also record hits in the win.

The Pride loaded the bases early in the first inning off two singles and a walked batter, but would not succeed in a run. The batter in the fourth hole struck out as Carolann Lubach stepped up to the plate. Lubach would hit a ground ball to Gober who threw to catcher Jessica Gilmore, turning a double play to get runners on third and first.

In the 1-0 win, the Seminoles recorded one run, two hits and one error and held Hofstra to no runs, two hits with two errors.

Florida State heads into tough competition on Saturday, taking on No. 4 Tennessee first, followed by No. 2 Texas A&M at 11:00 a.m. and 1:30 p.m., respectively. The Seminoles are 0-1 against the Lady Vols and tied the series with the Aggies 4-4.

Seminoles Fall In Heartbreaker To No. 4 Tennessee.

Florida State scored the most runs given up by the Lady Vols in the 8-5 loss.

COLUMBUS, GA - Florida State just missed taking down No. 4 Tennessee in day two of the NFCA Leadoff Classic in Columbus, Ga., on March 1. The 11-8 Seminoles scored five runs in the 8-5 loss, notching the most runs the 17-1 Lady Vols have given up in a single game this season.

Taking the loss against the Lady Vols was sophomore Terese Gober who entered in the top of the third for freshman Sarah Hamilton. Gober is now 5-6 this year, with a 2.02 ERA after striking out six and allowing three hits and five runs, three of them earned.

Tennessee scored first in the top of the second and followed with two runs in the third. The Seminoles would answer in the bottom of the fourth as senior Brittany Osmon knocked a two-run homer over the right field fence, bringing in Carly Wynn from first.

Osmon led Florida State against the Lady Vols with one of her best games of the season. The San Diego, Calif., native went 3-for-4 with two runs and two RBI's against Tennessee to improve her average to .321. Osmon is now tied for second on the Seminole squad with 14 RBI's and three home runs.

Tennessee scored two runs in the third and sixth to stretch the lead 5-2, but Florida State would make a charging comeback in the bottom of six. A single down the left field line by Osmon kicked off the bottom of the sixth as she advanced to second off a single by sophomore Monica Montez into left field. With runners of first and second and two outs on the board, freshman Ashley Stager stepped up to the plate. Stager would reach on a fielder error by Tennessee's second baseman, advancing Osmon and Montez one base apiece.

Michelle Snyder batted in the eighth hole, knocking a single to the third baseman to bring Osmon home on her seventh RBI of the season. Sophomore Camille Garcia entered the line-up pinch hitting for Kristie McConn. Garcia hit a nice single up the middle, bringing in Montez and Stager to tie it up at five apiece.

With six outs left in the game and the score tied, the Lady Vols started at the top of their line-up with Lillian Hammond who was walked by Gober who would walk the next batter and advance the third on a hit by pitch call. With bases loaded, Shannon Doepking hit a nice single into left field to bring in an RBI from third. Tennessee would go on to score two additional runs off a walk and a single to go three up on the Seminoles.

Florida State was down 8-5 with three outs left to stay in the game with the Lady Vols' pitcher Megan Rhodes re-entering the game after being relieved by Ashton Ward in the bottom of the fourth.

Osmon would be the only Seminole to reach a base in the seventh, hitting a nice double into left center. A line drive to the shortstop from Allison Collins would be the third out and end the game with a final score of 8-5.

Florida State Shutout By No. 2 Texas A&M.

The Seminoles were unable to pull off a run from the 21-2 Aggies.

COLUMBUS, GA - Following a heartbreaking loss to No. 4 Tennessee, Florida State's softball team was unable to shake off No. 2 Texas A&M, falling 7-0 on day two of the NFCA Leadoff Classic in Columbus, Ga. The Seminoles are now 2-2 at the tournament and 11-9 on the season while the Aggies remain undefeated over the weekend and improve to 21-2 for the year.

Following a stellar performance against the Lady Vols earlier in the day, Brittany Osmon led the Seminoles against the Aggies. Osmon went 2-for-2, notching two singles and two total bases. The senior improves her average to .345 after 20 games and leads her team with 19 hits and 30 total bases.

Taking the loss for Florida State was senior Tiffany McDonald, now 1-1, who threw for four innings, giving up six hits, six runs (five earned), walking five and striking out two for Texas A&M. Freshman Sarah Hamilton stepped in to finish the last two innings and struck out one, allowed one hit and allowed an unearned run to score on a wild pitch.

Senior Whitney Buckmon, junior Jessica Gilmore, and sophomore Robin Ahrberg each recorded a hit for FSU but were unable to make it around the bases.

Seminole Softball Closes Out NFCA Tournament With Win Over Iowa.

Florida State shut out its third opponent of the weekend with the 2-0 victory.

COLUMBUS, GA - The Florida State softball team was victorious on the final day of competition at the 13th Annual NFCA Leadoff Classic in Columbus, Ga., as it shutout the Iowa Hawkeyes 2-0 on Sunday. The Seminoles went 3-2 over the weekend, giving up zero runs in all three victories and improving to 12-9 on the season.

Pitching her second win of the season was senior Tiffany McDonald who struck out nine while giving up seven hits, no runs and no walks. McDonald notched a 1.94 ERA over the weekend which leads her pitching staff this season.

The game remained scoreless until the top of the seventh when the Seminoles moved into scoring position thanks to the efforts by the sophomores. Sophomores Robin Ahrberg and Carly Wynn started it off with a walk and an advance on an error, respectively. With runners on first and second (and junior Melissa May in to pinch run for Ahrberg), fellow sophomore Monica Montez would reach first on a fielder's choice by the short stop that took out Wynn at second. Freshman Ashley Stager was the second Seminole to be walked in the inning, which filled the bases as junior Michelle Snyder stepped up to the plate.

Another fielder's choice would advance Snyder to second as the play turned into trouble for Iowa. The third baseman attempted to make a play at second, but over threw to allow May and Montez to score and move Stager to third. Florida State was now up 2-0 with runners on second a third and only one out on the board.

Freshman Kristie McConn would hit a single bunt to load the bases one last time before a fly out to center and a ground ball to the shortstop would end the inning for the Seminoles.

The Hawkeyes fought back to stay in the game, placing runners in scoring position with no outs. But their best just wasn't good enough as a pop-up to Stager was followed by a strike-out and a fly ball to Whitney Buckmon in right to end the game.

The victory over Iowa brings the overall series to 5-3 with Florida State holding on to the lead. The last time the Hawkeyes were able to over-power the Seminoles was over 10 years ago in 1997 when they won 7-1 in a regular season tournament.

Florida State's only losses at the NFCA Leadoff Classic came to the No. 2 and No. 4 teams in the nation, Texas A&M and Tennessee. The Seminoles were able to score five runs off the Lady Vols - the most Tennessee has given up in a single game all season. Wrapping up the 3-2 weekend was the announcement of the All-Tournament Team which featured Seminole senior Brittany Osmon. Osmon went 6-for-13 over the three-days, scoring a team-high six runs. The first baseman also hit the solo homerun of the tournament for FSU against Tennessee and had a double while leading the team with three RBI's.

Seminoles Shutout Huskies And Mountaineers.

Florida State took down UConn and Appalachian State 7-0 and 2-0, respectively, on the first day of the FSU Invitational.

March 8, 2008.

TALLAHASSEE, FL - Florida State returns home to host its final tournament, the FSU Invitational, and shutouts both Connecticut and Appalachian State Saturday, March 8, on JoAnne Graf Field at the Seminole Softball Complex. The Seminoles are now 14-9 after defeated the Huskies 7-0 and the Mountaineers 2-0.

Notching her third win of the season against UConn was senior Tiffany McDonald who struck-out 11 and gave up only three hits with zero walks and zero runs. McDonald now leads the Seminole pitching staff with a 1.40 season ERA and is tied for first with three shutouts.

Freshman and ACC Player of the Week (Feb. 18), Ashley Stager, pounded her first career home run against the Huskies in the bottom of the sixth to score the seventh run of the game and seal the win for FSU. Stager's homer over the left field wall was one of two hits for the Trinity, Fla., native who went 2-for-3 with two runs and two RBI's to bring her season average to .262.

Sophomore Carly Wynn also went 2-for-3 in game one, scoring one run and stealing two bases from UConn. The ACC leader in the hits category, Whitney Buckmon, got two hits, one RBI and scored one run for the Seminoles, bringing her total to 30 hits and a team-leading .385 average.

Senior Brittany Osmon went 1-for-2 with one RBI and one run, while sophomore Robin Ahrberg also went 1-for-2 but had two RBI's and one run scored in the 7-0 win.

"Tiffany [McDonald] threw really well today," Seminole head coach JoAnne Graf said. "I think we were able to get the jump on Connecticut early and I'm glad we were able to maintain it."

With less than 30 minutes to prepare, the Seminoles headed into their second and last game of the day against the Appalachian State Mountaineers who suffered a 7-1 loss to Georgia State earlier in the day. The Mountaineers, who have won just one game all season, are 1-14 following the 2-0 shutout to Florida State.

Sophomore Terese Gober takes the win and nearly threw a no-hitter against Appalachian State. Gober, now 6-6 with a 1.85 ERA, gave up a single hit and struck out seven while allowing only two walks.

"Terese [Gober] also threw really well against App. State," Graf said. "She did a good job at shutting them down early."

Osmon led the Seminoles against the Mountaineers; going 2-for-3 with one run scored and is now batting .349 on the season. Ahrberg and fellow sophomore Camille Garcia each got one hit in two at-bats, with Garcia and freshman Kristie McConn recording the two RBI's for FSU.

Stager scored the other run for Florida State and was hit by Appalachian State pitcher, Yancy Moose, twice in the second a sixth innings. Stager is tied with Buckmon at four for number of times each were hit by a pitch this season.

Seminoles Win FSU Invitational With Back-to-Back Shutouts.

Florida State allowed no runs all weekend as the team took out Georgia State 1-0 and 3-0 to claim the tournament crown.

TALLAHASSEE, FL - Florida State wins the 2008 FSU Invitational with a 3-0 win over Georgia State in the championship game. The Seminoles were undefeated over the weekend with the pitching staff throwing shut outs in all four games. The last time FSU won its own invitational was in 2004 when the ladies won all six games, with five shut outs and only one run allowed. That series is also the last time the Seminoles won four straight no-run games.

Leading the team on the mound in the first game with Georgia State was senior Tiffany McDonald who threw 12 strikeouts and allowed just two hits and no walks. McDonald is now 4-1 on the season with a staff-high 1.09 ERA and four shutouts.

The Seminoles pulled off their solo run in the bottom of the sixth as All-Tournament team member Ashley Stager pounded a double to the center field wall to bring Robin Ahrberg home with two outs on the board. The Panthers would try to answer in the seventh, but were unsuccessful and suffered their first lost of the weekend.

Jessica Gilmore led the offense in the 1-0 victory, going 2-for-3 and notching 12 put-outs at the catcher position. Stager, Carly Wynn and Monica Montez all went 1-for-3 while tournament MVP, senior Brittany Osmon, knocked a triple into center and finished the game 1-for-2.

Florida State would face Georgia State one last time on Sunday in the championship round as the No. 1 and No. 2 teams, respectively. This time, the Panthers would have to face local celebrity, Sarah Hamilton, on the mound.

Hamilton, the lone freshman on the pitching staff, clinched the win for Florida State as she struck out nine and gave up only five hits to the Panthers. Her record improves to 4-1 as she pitched her fourth complete game and second career shutout.

Osmon would earn her MVP status in the 3-0 title game. The first baseman had a perfect 3-for-3 game, including a solo home run over the right field wall, and drove in all three RBI's for the Seminoles. The lefty leads her team with .382 average and is tied for second with four home runs.

Florida State is 2-0 in home tournaments when Osmon hits a home run. The San Diego, Calif., native cranked her first homer of the year at the Early Bird Tournament to win the championship game against Louisville on February 9.

In addition to Osmon, Gilmore and Stager, McDonald and sophomore Carly Wynn were also named to the All-Tournament team. Wynn had an impressive showing on defense all weekend as she made some tricky plays to shut down the offense for Georgia State.

Florida State Sweeps Doubleheader Against Connecticut.

Ashley Stager recorded her second career home run; her first coming against the Huskies on March 8.

TALLAHASSEE, FL - The 18-9 Florida State softball team swept a doubleheader with Connecticut on JoAnne Graf Field Tuesday, March 11. The Seminoles won both games 2-1 and extend their winning streak to seven this season.

ACC Pitcher of the Week, Tiffany McDonald, struck out nine in the first victory, giving up just one earned run and one walk. The senior improves to 5-1 on the season and continues to lead the pitching staff with her 1.08 ERA.

Going yard for the second time in four days was freshman Ashley Stager. With UConn's Jillian Ortega knocking a home run out of the park early in the first inning, the Seminole shortstop answered with one of her own high over the right field wall. Stager, now batting .264, recorded her first home run of the season on March 8 against the Huskies in the FSU Invitational. She also led the offense in game one, going 2-for-3, scoring both runs and notching one RBI.

Freshman Brittany Joseph had a breakout performance against UConn as she notched her first hit as a Seminole. The Laurel, De., native went 2-for-3, pounding a double into left center. Playing at second in game two, Joseph again went 2-for-3 to kick-start her average at .167.

Also making strong plays on offense were sophomores Carly Wynn, who went 2-for-3 and scored one run in the first game, and Camille Garcia, whose sacrifice bunt in the bottom of the seventh brought in the winning run in game two. The play that clinched the victory for FSU earlier in the day was a walk off single by junior Jessica Gilmore, who is now hitting .253 with five RBI's.

Sophomore Terese Gober would take the second victory of the night, throwing four strikeouts and giving up an earned run, while freshman Sarah Hamilton threw for two innings and added two strikeouts to her resume.

Florida State Sweeps Two Against Virginia.

Florida State advances to 3-2 in the ACC after defeating the Cavaliers.

CHARLOTTESVILLE, VA - In only the second round of conference play this season, the Florida State softball team downed Virginia 9-1 and 8-3 at The Park in Charlottesville, Va., on March 14. The Seminoles improve to 20-9 on the season and 3-2 in the Atlantic Coast Conference.

In the first victory of the day, eight of the nine batters recorded hits as the Seminoles scored four earned and five unearned runs off of Virginia.

Improving her record to 6-1 following the win was senior Tiffany McDonald who gave up just one earned run on five hits while striking out eight Cavaliers. McDonald continues to lead the Seminole pitching staff with her impressive 1.08 ERA.

Sophomore pitcher, Terese Gober, was awarded the win for game two after pitching for six innings. She gave up four hits and three earned runs with five strikeouts, moving her record to 7-6 and her ERA to 1.93.

After two complete games against Virginia, freshman Brittany Joseph became the heavy-hitter for the Seminoles. The utility player went 3-for-5 this evening, scoring two runs and notching her second career double for a .600 average against the Cavaliers.

Veteran Robin Ahrberg was a force to be reckoned with on offense as she went 3-for-6 with a double and a three-run RBI homer over dead center in the 8-3 game two win. This is the second time in her Seminole career the sophomore has gone yard as she led the Seminoles with five RBI's and seven total bases against UVa.

Senior Brittany Osmon was once again an offensive threat as she notched four RBI's on three hits, one of them a double, and scored four runs for Florida State. Osmon will enter Saturday's game with the Cavaliers with an impressive .383 season average, topping the Seminole squad.

The two victories this evening extends FSU's winning streak to 58-15 overall and 14-6 in Charlottesville. Both losses drop Virginia to 7-15 overall and 2-3 in the ACC this season.

Seminoles Sweep Series Against Cavaliers.

Two Florida State home runs clinched the 5-1 victory at Virginia.

CHARLOTTESVILLE, VA - With a 5-1 win at The Park on Saturday, March 15, the Florida State softball team swept the three-game series against Virginia in Charlottesville, Va. Sophomore Carly Wynn and senior Brittany Osmon each knocked a home run out of the park as the Seminoles improve to 21-9 and 4-2 in the ACC.

Wynn's homer came early in the third inning with a full count and one out on the board. It is the first home run for the center fielder this season as she improves her average to .279. Osmon now has five home runs, one shy of her career high six from last season, and now tops the Seminole squad with a .393 average.

Wynn also hit a double to finish the day 2-for-3 with one RBI and two runs scored with Osmon going 2-for-3 overall with two RBI's and one run against the Cavs.

The closest Virginia would come to a home run was in the bottom of the second from Lindsey Preuss whose high fly out to right field was snatched over the fence by sophomore Monica Montez. Her stellar defensive play prevented two runs from scoring which would have given the Cavaliers the advantage.

On the mound for FSU was senior Tiffany McDonald who struck out 10 Cavaliers and gave up one earned run. McDonald continues her six-game winning streak with a 7-1 record and a team leading 1.06 ERA.

Senior Whitney Buckmon returned to the lineup in game three this weekend and went 3-for-4 and scored two runs for FSU. Buckmon is now batting .386 as she tops the team with 34 hits and is one behind Osmon with 19 runs scored.

Also recording hits this afternoon were sophomores Camille Garcia and Monica Montez with two and one, respectively, and freshman Kristie McConn who also hit one.

While McDonald was able to strikeout 10, the Cavaliers' pitching staff only had two after facing 34 FSU batters. The Seminoles scored their five runs on 11 hits, while UVA scored one on three hits and had the solo error on the day.

Seminoles Extend Winning Streak To Twelve.

Florida State swept doubleheader against Lipscomb on Tuesday night.

TALLAHASSEE, FL - Back home after a three-game sweep at Virginia, the Florida State softball team won the doubleheader against Lipscomb on JoAnne Graf Field at the Seminole Softball Complex on Tuesday, March 18. Game one was taken in a 5-1 decision and the second game was stopped early as the Seminoles scored 11 on the Lady Bisons to end it after five, 11-3. The pair of victories extends the Seminoles' winning streak to 12 and their season record to 23-9.

"We had to take care of Lipscomb, they are a good ball club," head coach JoAnne Graf said. "I was real pleases with their focus and the way they hit the ball early tonight."

Sophomore Carly Wynn went 3-for-3 with two runs in game one and was 1-for-1 with one RBI and three runs scored in the second victory against the Lady Bisons. Wynn is now batting a .340 average.

Also recording hits in both games was senior Whitney Buckmon who went 3-for-4 in game one and 2-for-2 with two runs and a three RBI triple in game two. Buckmon moves back to the top of the Seminole squad with her .415 average and 39 hits. Tying Buckmon with 21 runs is fellow senior Brittany Osmon who was 3-for-5 after both games against Lipscomb and is currently second on the team with an impressive .404 average. Osmon continues to lead the team in RBIs with 30 and five home runs.

In the 5-1 victory in game one, the top four batters (Wynn, Buckmon, Osmon and Robin Ahrberg) went 9-for-15 and accounted for nine of the 12 hits and three of the five runs. Those Seminole heavy hitters returned in game two along with freshman Ashley Stager and recorded eight if the 10 hits, scored eight runs and contributed four RBIs.

With 12-straight wins under their belt, the Seminoles are headed into the final tournament of the season in Fullerton, Calif., this weekend. The Judi Garman Classic will showcase some of the top teams in the nation, including No. 1 Arizona State and No. 7 Arizona. Florida State will face-off against the Arizona State Sun Devils on Thursday, March 20 at 9:00 a.m. PST to kick-off the five-game event.

"We're all excited about playing some top five teams out in California," Graf said. "We need the wins right now. It's going to be tough for us to go out there and win some games, but as always we will give it a good shot. I believe there is a good chance we could upset some people."

03/20/2008, Judi Garman Classic, Fullerton, Ca

Florida State Softball Defeats No. 1 Arizona State.

The Seminoles' Brittany Osmon recorded a two-run home run to secure the win.

FULLERTON, CA - In one of the most exciting games of the season, the Florida State softball team defeated No. 1 Arizona State 3-2 at the Judi Garman Classic in Fullerton, Calif. Senior Brittany Osmon swung for the fences to seal the deal in the sixth for the Seminoles who improve to 24-9. This is the second loss of the season for the Sun Devils who are now 31-2.

It was Osmon's sixth home run this season, tying her single season best from 2007, as she went 2-for-3 with two runs scored and two RBI. She improves her average to .413, topping the Seminole team.

"Arizona State is a great team," head coach JoAnne Graf said. "I think it's a big step for our kids, just confidence wise, to see that they can play with the best team in the country."

Although the Sun Devils struck first with a 1-0 lead after three complete innings, it was the lefty first baseman that put FSU on the board. Osmon knocked a single to right field and would advance to third on an Arizona State error. With no outs, designated player, Robin Ahrberg, grounded out to the second baseman which allowed Osmon to tie it up.

"Even when they scored we came back," Graf said. "I think the kids played composed and never let Arizona State have a big inning."

The Sun Devils would take a 2-1 lead off a single home run from Kristen Miller who was the leadoff batter for ASU in the bottom of the fifth. Florida State's Carly Wynn started things off for FSU in the sixth, reaching first on a single hit towards the pitcher. Senior Whitney Buckmon would strike out swinging with Osmon stepping to the plate. Osmon would swing and miss the first two pitches she got before clinching the win with her two-run homer over the right center wall.

"The big two-run home run by Brittany Osmon was phenomenal," Graf said. "She's having a great season, and I hope it continues."

Notching her eighth-straight victory was Florida State's Tiffany McDonald, now 9-1 on the year, who allowed three hits and gave up two runs, both of them earned, and struck out six Sun Devils.

"Tiffany did a great job," Graf said. "I think she really stepped up a level today. She never let Arizona State get a big inning on us."

The Seminoles last win against ASU was at the Judi Garman Classic in 2006 in a game that went to 10 innings with FSU coming out with the 1-0 victory. The Sun Devils were ranked No. 10 in that meeting.

Seminoles Fall To No. 20 Long Beach State.

Sophomore Robin Ahrberg led the Seminoles with two hits and an RBI.

FULLERTON, CA - Following a spectacular victory over No. 1 Arizona State earlier in the day, the Florida State softball team was unable to upset No. 20 Long Beach State as it suffered a 6-2 loss at the Judi Garman Classic. The Seminoles' record is now 24-10 while the 49ers improve to 22-8.

On the offense, sophomore Robin Ahrberg went 2-for-3 and scored the first run of the game in the bottom of the second and would hit an RBI double into right center to bring Whitney Buckmon across the plate. Ahrberg is now hitting .300 this season, ranking fourth on the Seminole squad.

Taking her second loss of the season was senior Tiffany McDonald who entered the game in the top of the fourth when FSU had a 2-1 lead over LBSU. McDonald gave up four hits, five runs (only two earned) and struck out four. Sophomore Terese Gober was the starting pitcher against the 49ers but after giving up two hits, one earned run and walking three of six batters, freshman Sarah Hamilton was called in from the bullpen. Hamilton would throw for just one inning, giving up one hit and walking two.

Florida State Slips To Defending National Champion Arizona.

The No. 7 team in the country took down the Seminoles 13-2 in six innings.

FULLERTON, CA - Florida State was unable to pull off the win against defending National Champion, and No. 7 this week, Arizona, falling 13-2 in six at the Judi Garman Classic in Fullerton, Calif. The Seminoles have been unsuccessful in seven meetings with the 20-6 Wildcats as they suffered their second loss of the tournament and are now 24-11.

Juniors Jessica Gilmore and Michelle Snyder and sophomore Carly Wynn were able to get hits off of Arizona's pitcher, Lindsey Sisk (10-1). Sisk would give up the first run to the Seminoles in the second after hitting Monica Montez with the bases loaded, scoring Robin Ahrberg. It was a single from Snyder in that inning that would bring freshman Ashley Stager home.

Despite their efforts, the Seminoles' pair of runs would not be enough to overcome the five-run lead the Wildcats took in the first inning. FSU pitcher Melissa May started the game with a walk that was followed by two singles to load the bases with Arizona heavy-hitter Stacie Chambers stepping to the plate. Chambers had six home runs and a .324 average entering the game and would get her seventh homer as she swing for the fences on the first pitch to notch her second grand slam of the season.

May gave up five earned runs on five hits and walked two before sophomore pitcher Terese Gober would be called from the bullpen in the top of the second. Arizona's No. 7-ranked offense would not be tamed by Gober who gave up nine hits, eight runs (seven earned), walked three and struck out seven.

Florida State Drops A Heartbreaking Loss To No. 18 Washington.

Tiffany McDonald pitched an outstanding nine innings with 12 strikeouts against the Huskies.

FULLERTON, CA - In the first extra-inning game of the season, Florida State came within one run of defeating No. 18 Washington, but would suffer the 4-3 loss after nine innings. Senior pitcher Tiffany McDonald showcased one of her best games with 12 strikeouts as the Seminoles move to 24-12 and Washington 20-7-1.

McDonald, now 9-3 on the season, pitched her heart out and held Washington hitless until the seventh. The Seminoles struck first in the bottom of the fourth as freshman Ashley Stager scored from third on an error by the Huskies' left fielder. With the 1-0 lead, it would be a Seminole error by centerfielder Carly Wynn that would allow the tying run to cross home in the top of the seventh. With no runs scored for FSU in the bottom, the game would head into to extra innings.

In the international tie breaker, whoever was the last out of the previous inning is placed on second as both teams get three outs to score. Both Washington and Florida State advanced the runners on second to third on sacrifice bunts, but would not cross home plate in the eighth.

In the top of the ninth with Morgan Stuart on second for the Huskies, Alicia Blake would go yard on a 2-2 count to take a 3-1 lead. Designated player Ashlyn Watson would get on base with a single and come around to score off a single RBI by Bailey Stenson to jump out to a 4-1 advantage heading into the bottom of the inning.

Florida State would not back down, senior Brittany Osmon waited on second as sophomore Robin Ahrberg stepped to the plate. Ahrberg wasted no time as she swung on the first pitch to send a bullet over right center for a two-run RBI, closing the gap to 4-3 still in favor of Washington.

With no outs on the board, junior Jessica Gilmore would single and then advance to second when sophomore Camille Garcia reached first on an error. With runners on first and second, the Seminoles fell victim to two fly balls to center and left field. In a last-ditch effort to clear the bases, pinch hitter Allison Collins was called in. Collins stayed alive but would pop up to the pitcher to end the ball game.

On the offense, Ahrberg led as she went 1-for-3 with one run scored and two RBI. She recorded her third home run of the season and set a new season best. FSU would score three runs, one earned, on five hits with two errors in the loss. Also recording hits were Whitney Buckmon, Gilmore, Stager and Monica Montez.

The Seminoles are now 1-3 this weekend after the loss to Washington, who they defeated at the Judi Garman Classic last season.

FLORIDA STATE 4, CAL ST-FULLERTON 1
03/22/2008, FULLERTON, CA, Judi Garman Classic

Florida State Takes Big Win Over Cal State Fullerton.

The Seminoles recorded two double RBI home runs in the 4-1 win on the road.

FULLERTON, CA - A satisfying end to the Judi Garman Classic on March 22 included a stellar 4-1 win over tournament host Cal State Fullerton. The four RBI came courtesy of two home runs from Kristie McConn and Carly Wynn. The Seminoles remain flawless on the road with their seventh road win and improve to 25-12 overall, while the Titans drop to 16-15-1.

"I am really proud of the win tonight," head coach JoAnne Graf said. "I think we really learned a lot after these five games and the team improved with every game we played."

McConn kick-started the scoring for FSU in the top of the second with two outs and fellow freshman Ashley Stager on third. On a 1-2 count, McConn took a strong swing and watched the ball fly far to left field, nearing foul territory. As Stager was sent home by coach Graf, McConn stopped short at second as the ball ricocheted off the foul pole and landed back onto the field; she thought it was simply a double. Much to the surprise of the freshman second baseman, it was indeed a home run, her first as a Seminole, and she continued home where her teammates were waiting to give their congrats.

With Florida State in the lead 2-1, pitcher Tiffany McDonald worked on keeping it that way as she held the Titans scoreless the remainder of the game. McDonald, now 10-3, gave up just one earned run on eight hits while striking out six and walking zero. The senior continues to lead the pitching staff with a 1.25 ERA and is in a close second behind Terese Gober with 103 strikeouts in 13 appearances.

Florida State would seal the deal with the second two RBI homer of the game from sophomore Carly Wynn, her second this year. Stepping to the plate, Wynn was advised by Graf to try a different bat than her usual, which was heavier. With a lighter bat in hand, the centerfielder swung at the first pitch and it was going, going, gone. With two outs, it would be McConn who would score off Wynn's home run after advancing to first on a walk. Wynn is now batting a .323 overall average this season and was .267 at the five-game tournament in Fullerton, Calif.

"It was awesome," Wynn said of her home run. "You can always breathe a little easier when you're up by three runs instead of one in the last inning.

"I was so proud of Kristie [McConn]. She came through with the first two-run home run and she hasn't gotten a lot of at-bats this season. Then she worked a walk in the seventh and gave me another chance to bat and I made up my mind I was going to swing at the first pitch and it worked out."

After seven complete innings against the Titans, McConn would lead the offense going 1-for-2 with two RBI and scoring two runs. Wynn was 1-for-4 with one run and the second pair of RBI. Senior Whitney Buckmon also recorded two hits and sophomore Robin Ahrberg would round off the hits with one of her own.

After five games, FSU was 2-3 with wins over No. 1 Arizona State and Cal State Fullerton.

"I think we played really well in three of the five games this weekend," Graf said. "We got to see the level of competition we will see again in the post season and I feel we played well against it."

Senior pitcher Tiffany McDonald threw a season-high 15 strikeouts against Boston College in the first game of the day with two Eagles striking out in all three at-bats. McDonald's ERA improves to 1.08 as she continues to lead the pitching staff with a 12-3 record and 129 strikeouts.

Brittany Osmon was 1-for-3 and scored the winning run for Florida State on an RBI single by freshman Ashley Stager. Osmon is hitting .353 and leads the team with 25 runs scored while Stager's .252 average is third on the Seminole squad as she records RBI number 21.

In the second game of the day, sophomore pitcher Terese Gober would take the loss as she gave up six runs, five earned, on eight hits and struck out seven. Gober is now 8-7 on the season with a 2.46 ERA.

Junior Michelle Snyder was solid as she went 2-for-3 and scored the lone run for FSU. Pinch-hitter Allison Collins would enter the lineup in the bottom of seven with Snyder on third and Kelly Langston on first. A sacrifice fly to left field brought Snyder home and prevented the Eagles from recording a shutout.

The loss to Boston College was the first in Tallahassee for Florida State since dropping two against ACC opponent North Carolina on February 24. The Tar Heels took the final two games of that series with a 5-1 and 6-4 win.

McDonald Throws Shutout Against Eagles.

The Seminole pitcher struck out nine in the 6-0 win in Tallahassee.

TALLAHASSEE, FL - The Florida State softball team closed out the weekend series against Boston College on March 30 with a 6-0 shutout on JoAnne Graf Field. The Seminoles improve to 29-13 overall and 6-3 in the Atlantic Coast Conference while the Eagles slip to 19-17 and 2-4.

Leading the team once again was senior pitcher Tiffany McDonald whose 1.01 ERA and 13-3 record tops the FSU pitching staff. McDonald struck out nine batters in her seventh shutout this season. She now has 138 total strikeouts, an average of just over eight strikeouts per game.

Freshman shortstop Ashley Stager was the first to score in bottom of the second as she swung for the fences to record her fourth home run this season. Stager, who was 1-for-2 on the day with two runs scored and a solo RBI, is now batting .257 and is tied for second in the home run category.

Allison Collins led the offensive threat against Boston College on Sunday, going 2-for-3 with two RBIs and one run scored. The freshman designated player hit .667 against the Eagles and drove in runs number five and six in the bottom of the sixth.

Also hitting safely was seniors Whitney Buckmon and Brittany Osmon and sophomore Monica Montez who all had one hit in three at-bats and each scored one run apiece. Buckmon continues to lead the Seminoles with her .366 average while Osmon is in a close second with .353.

Seminoles Shutout Rattlers At Home.

Florida State tied its record for most runs scored in a single game with 18.

TALLAHASSEE, FL - In the second meeting between the teams this season, the Florida State softball team shutout Florida A&M 18-0 on JoAnne Graf Field on Wednesday, April 2. The Seminoles tied their all-time high of 18 runs in a single game, a record originally set against FAMU back in 2002. Florida State is now 30-13 on the season while the Rattlers fall to 10-27.

Freshman pitcher Sarah Hamilton takes the win as she leads the Seminoles to their largest winning margin since 1987 when FSU beat the Rattlers with a 17 run victory. Hamilton was one hit away from a perfect game as she stuck out seven batters in five innings to improve to 7-1 this season.

Leading on offense was sophomore Carly Wynn who was a perfect 4-for-4, one hit being a two-run homer over the centerfield wall, while scoring three runs and recording three RBI's. Wynn is now hitting a .370 average on the season after 27 games.

Nine out of 12 Seminole batters hit safely against FAMU's pitching staff which included starter Tiffany Chan, who was credited with the loss and Ashley Jones. Sophomore Robin Ahrberg recorded three hits, driving in three RBI's and also scored three.

Two freshmen put down two hits tonight, Allison Collins and Kristie McConn. Each contributed two runs while McConn drove in four RBI's while Collins recorded a solo RBI.

In the all-time series against the Rattlers, FSU leads 95-7 with only two losses at the Seminole Softball Complex. Earlier this season the Seminoles took out FAMU 9-1 in what was counted as a road game for Florida State but was played on JoAnne Graf Field.

Seminoles Split Doubleheader At Maryland.

Florida State fell 3-1 in game one but was able to come back with a 3-0 shutout in game two.

COLLEGE PARK, MD - It was a long trip from Tallahassee, Fla., to College Park, Md., for Florida State softball as inclement weather in the Atlanta area prevented the team from making its connection on Friday night. The Seminoles eventually made it to Maryland just after five in the morning on Saturday following a 13 hour layover in the Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport.

With the start times for the doubleheader against the Terrapins pushed back to 3:00 p.m. on April 5, the Seminoles were unable to shake off their jet lag as they fell 3-1 in game one. The loss is the first for FSU on the road at a non-neutral site.

Tiffany McDonald was credited with the 3-1 loss after giving up six hits, three earned runs and striking out seven Terrapins. McDonald's record moves to 13-4 and her ERA slips slightly to 1.15 on the season.

The Terps got out to a slight 1-0 lead after two and would extend that to 3-1 off a two-RBI home run from heavy-hitter Brittany Bessho in the bottom of the sixth. Seminole freshman Ashley Stager would score the lone run for FSU off an RBI single by junior Jessica Gilmore in the top of six with zero outs. A strikeout and double play would end the inning.

Florida State was down but not out as game two was underway with Seminole freshman Sarah Hamilton controlling the mound. Hamilton, who entered the weekend with a 7-1 record and impressive 1.48 ERA, struck out one batter while giving up no runs on three hits and no walks. She is now pitching a 1.38 ERA, second to McDonald, with a near flawless 8-1 record after the 3-0 shutout.

With a 3-0 lead, veteran pitcher Terese Gober entered the lineup for FSU in the bottom of the fifth and struck out five while giving up no hits and no walks after facing only nine Terrapin batters.

Leading the offense after two complete games was senior Whitney Buckmon who hit safely in both, going 2-for-6 with a .333 average on the day. Overall, seven Seminoles recorded hits against Maryland and on top with a pair of RBI's was designated player Allison Collins. Stager, who scored two runs this evening, and Gilmore would round-out the RBI's for FSU.

Florida State Slips 4-3 Against Maryland.

The Seminoles were unable to hold onto a 3-2 lead as the Terps scored two in the bottom of the seventh.

COLLEGE PARK, MD - On the first televised game this season for Florida State, the Seminoles were unable to hold onto a one-run lead as Maryland clinched the win with a two-run single in the bottom of the seventh, taking the game in a 4-3 decision. The garnet and gold struggled in College Park and took just one of the three games against the Terps. The overall record for FSU is now 31-15 and 7-5 in the ACC, while Maryland improves to 27-10 and 3-6 in the conference.

It was one of the coldest days the Seminoles have seen this season and perhaps one of the wettest as puddles plagued the outfield and warning track. Despite the less than ideal conditions, Florida State was able to score first in the second inning as junior Jessica Gilmore reached second on her second double this year to left center. She would earn the first run for FSU after sophomore Carly Wynn knocked a nice single to right field.

Not one to be outdone, the Terrapins answered with two runs in the bottom of the inning to take the lead. The scoring would cease until the top of the fifth when Florida State took control of the offense.

Senior Whitney Buckmon was first to reach base in the fifth, hitting in the second hole. With Wynn on first, Buckmon hit to the second baseman who collided with Wynn as she tried to advance; Wynn would be called out for interference as Buckmon reached base on a fielder's choice. With Brittany Osmon at the plate, Buckmon was able to get into scoring position as she stole her 18 base this season. Osmon, always a threat on offense, shot a hard double to left center that would score Buckmon and record the first baseman's 37 RBI of the season.

With the score tied, Osmon would push the garnet and gold ahead by one as she scored off a single hit towards the shortstop by Monica Montez. That would wrap-up the scoring for the Seminoles as they would hold Maryland scoreless heading into the sixth.

No runs would cross in the sixth, giving Florida State just six outs to secure the win. Two Seminole batters would reach base on hit by pitches in the top of the seventh, but none would score as Maryland now had three outs to make a comeback.

The Terrapins did just that as the first batter would reach first on a single, followed by a hit by pitch to put runners on first and second. A sacrifice bunt by Jenny Belak would move runners into scoring position with Alex Schultz striking out in the fourth hole.

Florida State was one out away from the win, as Maryland's Sarde Stewart stepped to the plate. Fouling off the first pitch, Sarde would face a 3-1 count before taking another swing that would send a two-RBU single into centerfield and give the Terps their second win of the weekend.

Credited with the second loss of the weekend was senior Tiffany McDonald who led the game with six strikeouts and only two walks. McDonald's record slips to 13-5 but her 1.32 ERA continues to top the Seminole pitching staff.

Wynn led the game, going 3-for-3 with one RBI and a weekend average of .400 to top the Seminole squad. Freshman Ashley Stager, 1-for-3 against the Terps today, hit .333 after three games on top of being hit by a pitch for the ninth time on Sunday.

Florida State Falls In Doubleheader At UCF.

The Seminoles scored only one run in 14 innings against the Knights.

ORLANDO, FL - The Seminoles were unable to pull off a win against the Knights of UCF as they dropped both games of a doubleheader (2-0 and 4-1) at the UCF Softball Complex in Orlando, Fla., on April 9. Florida State is now 31-17 on the season while UCF improves to 35-15.

The Seminoles were held scoreless in the first game of the afternoon, with sophomore Terese Gober credited with the loss. Gober is now 8-8 on the season and is throwing a 2.40 ERA following the loss in Orlando.

UCF was first to score in the third as the Seminoles' Whitney Buckmon saw most of the action in left field with three back-to-back hits coming her way, including a triple that put Golden Knight Tiffany Lane in scoring position.

Lane would go on to score as the next batter up, Marquita Council, hit a RBI single also to Buckmon in left to put the home team up 1-0. The gold and black would score again in the fourth to pull ahead 2-0.

The Seminoles were able to put runners in scoring position in the sixth, but were unable to bring any home. Senior Kelly Langston entered as a pinch-hitter for Kristie McConn in the ninth hole and reached first on the first pitch with a sold single to left field. That play was followed by a double to deep center from Carly Wynn to put runners on second and third. Whitney Buckmon would record her third strikeout that would be the first of three straight outs to end the inning for Florida State.

In game two of the day, the Golden Knights once again got a lead on the Seminoles scoring back-to-back runs in the second and third innings. This time, the garnet and gold was able to answer with a solo run in the top of the fourth by sophomore Monica Montez. Montez reached base on a solid double over the right fielder's head and would advance to third with two outs as freshman Ashley Stager stepped to the plate. Stager recorded her first hit of the afternoon to bring in the run by Montez to close the gap t0 2-1.

Central Florida would go up 3-1 as a runner scored on a throwing error by Seminole pitcher Tiffany McDonald, her second error this season. In the bottom of the sixth freshman Sarah Hamilton was brought in with hopes of a save for FSU but could not pull it off as UCF scored its fourth run off a throwing error from Seminole catcher Jessica Gilmore.

Florida State would drop the final game of the night in a 4-1 decision that would be credited to McDonald who is now 13-6 and continues to lead the pitching staff with a 1.32 ERA.

Seminoles Fight Back To Split Doubleheader Against Yellow Jackets.

Florida State recorded its sixth run-rule game with a 10-2 win over Georgia Tech.

TALLAHASSEE, FL - Returning home for the first time since April 2, the Florida State softball team split a doubleheader with Georgia Tech on Saturday, April 12, on JoAnne Graf Field. The Seminoles dropped a 5-2 decision in the early game but bounced back to take the second round 10-2 in five innings. The garnet and gold improve to 32-18 overall and 8-6 in the ACC while the Yellow Jackets move to 20-27 and 3-10.

Credited with her ninth win this season was sophomore Terese Gober who gave up just two runs, one earned, on three hits with two strikeouts and one walk. Leading the Seminoles on offense in the win was sophomore Robin Ahrberg who went a perfect 3-for-3 with three RBI's and one run scored.

After two complete games, senior Whitney Buckmon topped the Seminole squad as she went 6-for-8 with four runs scored. Ahrberg was 3-for-5 with three RBI's, sophomore Carly Wynn recorded three hits in seven at bats with two runs and a double, Jessica Gilmore was 2-for-5 with a team-high four RBI's and one triple and freshman Ashley Stager rounded out the top five after putting down two hits, one double and a single RBI.

Earlier in the day, the Seminoles were on the board in the first inning as Buckmon scored off an error by Georgia Tech's catcher and fellow senior Brittany Osmon crossed the plate with help from an RBI triple hit to right center by Jessica Gilmore.

With FSU up 2-0, only three Yellow Jacket batters would step to the plate in the top of the second before a dark cloud of Florida rain would cause over an hour and a half delay. As the raindrops began to fall, the Seminole pitcher Tiffany McDonald would struggle with the wet conditions and advance two batters on a hit by pitch call before the officials called for the delay.

Leading the garnet and gold in the first game was Buckmon who was a perfect 4-for-4 with one run scored. Also recording hits was Wynn, Gilmore and Monica Montez who were all 1-for-4.

As a team, Florida State hit a .392 average in 52 at bats after 12 innings against Georgia Tech in the split. FSU Starting pitcher McDonald suffered her fourth-straight loss in game one as her record slips to 13-7 and her ERA to 1.44.

Florida State Drops Final Game of Georgia Tech Series.

The Seminoles prevented a shutout after scoring two in the seventh.

TALLAHASSEE, FL - The Seminole softball team fought back from a shutout but was unable to get the win over Georgia Tech as they fell 6-2 on Saturday in day two of the ACC series. Florida State split a doubleheader on Saturday with the Yellow Jackets and is now 32-19 overall and 8-7 in conference play.

Getting the Seminoles on the board was sophomore co-captain Carly Wynn whose two-RBI home run in the bottom of the seventh prevented Tech from pulling off a shutout on JoAnne Graf Field. The homer was her fourth this season as her average improves to .367, a close second to team leader Whitney Buckmon's .368.

Sophomore Terese Gober started on the mound for Florida State and was credited with the loss after giving up three runs, one earned, on five hits and striking out three Yellow Jackets. Freshman and Tallahassee native Sarah Hamilton entered for the Seminoles in the second and would face just four batters and give up one earned run before assistant coach Barbara Sherwood would send out senior Tiffany McDonald to relieve.

Florida State led with nine strikeouts to the Yellow Jackets' four with McDonald striking out six batters, giving up two earned runs on four hits and walking one. Hamilton now leads the FSU pitching staff with a 1.46 ERA with McDonald trailing by a small margin at 1.49 while Gober slips to 2.35.

Buckmon, Brittany Osmon and Ashley Stager each recorded a hit against Georgia Tech. Osmon is now hitting a .329 average after 51 starts while Stager is now hitting .264.

Florida State Drops Doubleheader Against No. 3 Florida.

The Seminoles are now 32-21 on the season as they head to Virginia Tech this weekend.

TALLAHASSEE, FL - Florida State softball fell in a rivalry doubleheader to Florida on Wednesday, April 16, at the Seminole Softball Complex in Tallahassee, 6-1 and 14-4. Florida State's record slips to 32-21, while No. 3 Florida improves to 48-2.

In game one, Florida State's lone run came from an RBI double by Monica Montez in the second inning with the Seminoles down 4-0. Tiffany McDonald also went a complete game, scattering six hits and four runs with nine strikeouts of her own. The loss is her fifth-straight as she is now 13-8 with a 1.62 ERA.

Florida was led by All-American pitcher Stacey Nelson, who picked up her 31st win of the season, with a complete game effort allowing one run on four hits while striking out nine with three walks.

Francesca Enea had two hits for Florida, including an RBI double in the first, when Florida got right down to business in the first, scoring three runs thanks to a leadoff walk, hit batsman, and an Ali Gardiner single got the Gators on the board first, as they led for the entire game. Florida also added runs in the second, third, and fifth.

In game two, Terese Gober got the start for Florida State, pitching only three innings, giving up eight earned runs, over eleven hits and five strikeouts before returning in the fifth. Gober, now pitching a 2.95 ERA, gave up 13 runs, 12 earned, on 13 hits in her 10th loss of the season.

Florida State got to a 1-0 lead in the first when Whitney Buckmon singled, then stole second and advanced to third on the same play thanks to a Florida error, and eventually scored on a Jessica Gilmore infield single. The Seminole rally ended when Brittany Osmon grounded into a double play. It did not take Florida long to answer in the second, when they scored three runs off of RBI hits by Megan Bush and Corrie Brooks.

The game was broken wide open in the third, when Florida added four runs in addition to three in the second to storm to a 7-1 lead. Tiffany DeFelice had a two RBI double followed by another two RBI double by Kim Waleszonia. Florida State would provide an answer in the bottom half of the third, when the Seminoles scored three via an Osmon two-RBI double to left center to make the game 7-4. Florida got the runs back in the fourth with three runs to increase their lead to 10-4, but the Seminoles could not answer, leaving two runners on in the bottom of the fourth.

In the fifth, Florida scored enough to invoke the mercy rule, adding four runs to reach the required eight-run threshold through five innings of play when the first six Florida batters got on base. Florida State could not answer in the fifth and the game would come to a premature end.

Seminoles Downed In 3-0 Road Loss At Virginia Tech.

Florida State fell to the Hokies in its fourth shutout this season.

BLACKSBURG, VA - Florida State softball suffered its fourth shutout this season at the hands of Virginia Tech in a 3-0 loss in Blacksburg, Va., on Friday, April 18 in front of a crowd of over 800. The Seminoles now trail the all-time series 5-7 against the Hokies as they slip to 32-22 and 8-8 in the ACC this year.

Freshman Ashley Stager and sophomore Robin Ahrberg prevented Tech's Angela Tincher from recording a no-hitter as each put down one apiece. Stager was also hit by a pitch to bring her season total to 13 so far.

Credited with the loss was Tiffany McDonald, her sixth-straight, who is now throwing a 1.65 ERA. The senior righty struck out four Hokies and gave up three runs, two earned, on seven hits while walking two. The last victory for McDonald, now 13-9 on the year, came on March 30 as she threw a 6-0 shutout against fellow ACC opponent Boston College.

Virginia Tech got out to an early 2-0 lead in the third. With the bases loaded, Charisse Mariconda would hit an RBI single that would fly high over Seminole first baseman Brittany Osmon's glove to score Anna Zitt from second. Mariconda would advance to second on the throw by Monica Montez that also would score Erin Ota.

The Hokies scored their final run in the sixth on a throwing error from Osmon, her ninth this season. Florida State had runners in scoring position three times but was unable to bring them home; senior Whitney Buckmon would be the only Seminole to reach third after seven innings.

Seminoles break Hokie's winning streak as they split doubleheader.

Senior Tiffany McDonald moves into third for all-time strikeouts after notching five against Virginia Tech.

BLACKSBURG, VA - Florida State softball split a doubleheader against Virginia Tech on the road at the Tech Softball Park in front of a crowd of over 1,100 on Saturday, April 19. The Seminoles fell 3-1 in game one but would break their six-game losing streak with a 2-0 shutout in round two, breaking the Hokie's eight-game winning streak.

Senior pitcher Tiffany McDonald (14-9) struck out five Hokies in the victory, her eighth shutout this season, and now has 882 career strikeouts to move into third place on the all-time top ten list at FSU. The righty from Belfair, Wash., is now throwing a 1.57 ERA as she gave up just three runs and five walks this afternoon.

Scoring both runs for the garnet and gold was sophomore centerfielder Carly Wynn who went 1-for-2 with two walks. In the second inning, Wynn drew a walk off of Virginia Tech pitcher Kenzie Roark and then stole second. Junior Jessica Gilmore led the Seminoles with two hits, one of which was an RBI single that scored Wynn.

Florida State would clinch the win in the fifth as Wynn once again drew a walk, this time from the Hokie's top pitcher Angela Tincher, and once again stole second. The Noles would get a little help from the umpires as Tincher was called on two illegal pitches that would advance Wynn to third and then home for the second run for FSU.

After two complete games, Florida State improves to 33-23 overall and 9-9 in the ACC while Virginia Tech moves to 38-11 and 15-2 in the conference. The win is the first for the Seminoles in the last six games as sophomore pitcher Terese Gober is credited with the 3-1 loss in game one of the doubleheader.

Seminoles take game one of the series from Wolfpack.

Florida State came back from a weather delay to down NC State 1-0 in the sixth.

TALLAHASSEE, FL - In the inaugural 'StrikeOut' Breast Cancer game between Florida State and NC State, the unpredictable Florida weather rolled in during the top of the sixth with no score on the board for either team. Play resumed after a one-four and fifty-minute delay and the Seminoles were able to clinch the 1-0 victory.

Senior pitcher Tiffany McDonald recorded six strikeouts in game one, moving closer to breaking the all-time record of 899 at FSU currently held by Jessica van der Linden. McDonald's career total is at 888 and she needs only 11 more this season to match van der Linden and 12 to top the all-time list.

Scoring the winning run for FSU was sophomore Carly Wynn who also led the offense by recording two of the three hits on the afternoon. Wynn scored off an RBI single by Jessica Gilmore in the bottom of the sixth.

This is the first win FSU has taken over NC State since taking one from the series last season. The overall series between the teams is now tied at seven apiece.

Florida State comes back from behind to sweep doubleheader against NC State.

The Seminoles were down 3-0 before making a comeback and clinching the win in eight innings.

TALLAHASSEE, FL - In game two on Saturday, NC State fought back from its loss earlier to take a 3-0 lead heading into the fifth inning. Never giving up, Florida State powered back to tie it up in the sixth and would go on to seal the victory with a late run in extra innings. The Seminoles improve to 35-23 and 11-9 in the ACC to clinch third place while the Wolfpack slips to 29-25 and 8-10 in the conference.

NC State would score first off a base hit in the third, and two runs would cross in the fifth on a single to Whitney Buckmon in left field. The Seminoles would not answer until the fifth.

Kelly Langston hit her first home run this season over the left field wall to bring the Seminoles within two in the bottom of the fifth. Closing the gap even further was Carly Wynn who scored on a sacrifice fly from Jessica Gilmore in the same inning.

The Seminoles would tie it up in the bottom of the sixth as Monica Montez reached first on a hit by pitch and would advance to second as Michelle Snyder reached base on an error by NC State's second baseman. With runners on first and second, freshman Kristie McConn singled up the middle to bring Montez home and tie the score at three apiece.

With neither team scoring in the seventh, the game rolled into extra innings for only the second time this season for Florida State. In the top of the eighth, the Wolfpack had runners in scoring position with no outs, but would be unsuccessful in scoring and gave FSU a chance to clinch the win.

The Noles would do just that as McConn reached first on a hit by pitch, advancing to second on a single by Wynn with both moving up once more on the throw by NC State's left fielder. With Montez on third and Wynn on second, pinch hitter Camille Garcia struck out swinging for the second out with Gilmore stepping to the plate.

Gilmore would hit a hard single to the Wolfpack's short stop that would bring Montez home and with no outs on the play, Florida State would nab the 4-3 victory for its first doubleheader sweep since it took out Georgia Southern in two on March 26.

Sophomore Terese Gober would take the win, bringing her record to 10-11, with 11 strikeouts and only three runs (two earned).

Seminoles pull off series sweep with 10-1 win over NC State in five.

Senior Tiffany McDonald is only seven strikeouts away from topping the all-time record books at Florida State.

TALLAHASSEE, FL - Following an eight-inning win Saturday night, the Florida State softball team dominated the field for five innings on Senior Day to clinch the series sweep with a 10-1 victory over NC State. With the win, FSU is now 36-23 and in third place in the Atlantic Coast Conference with a 12-9 record.

The Seminoles have not swept a series with the Wolfpack since their first meeting in 2004 when FSU won the two-game series at the Seminole Softball Complex. Florida State also took over the all-time series record which is now 9-7 in favor of the Garnet and Gold.

Recording win number 16 was Tiffany McDonald who was honored along side her fellow seniors in a special Senior Day ceremony before the start of the game. McDonald notched five strikeouts this afternoon, a relatively low number for the Seminole starter, and comes even closer to breaking the current career record of 899 held by FSU great Jessica van der Linden. McDonald needs just six strikeouts to tie and seven to move into first place in the record books.

Helping McDonald on offense was a familiar Seminole team that took control of the score board early in the first inning. Scoring the first run for FSU was sophomore team co-captain Carly Wynn who once again led her team going 2-for-2 with three runs and drawing only one walk that would come back to haunt NC State pitcher Mendy McKenzie.

Once Wynn was on base, she advanced to second on a sacrifice bunt by senior Whitney Buckmon and would move up once again thanks to a passed ball by the Wolfpack catcher. Junior catcher Jessica Gilmore hit an RBI single right up the middle to get things started for the Noles. She would eventually move up on a base hit by senior Brittany Osmon and come around to score off a throwing error on the right fielder. With Osmon on second, sophomore Robin Ahrberg swung at the first pitch and cranked her fourth home run of the season and two RBI's to put the Seminoles up 4-0.

Wynn, Buckmon, Gilmore, Osmon and freshman Kristie McConn all scored in the second to widen the gap to 9-0 Florida State. Senior Kelly Langston closed out the scoring as she hit an RBI single to left bringing home Wynn in the third. A late run in the fourth would put NC State on the board, but with no score in the fifth the game would end early in a 10-1 Seminole victory.

MICHIGAN 6, FLORIDA STATE 2
04/30/2008, ANN ARBOR, MI

From the FSU Website, seminoles.com.

Seminoles fight back from shutout to drop 6-2 decision to No. 6 Michigan.

Florida State pitcher Tiffany McDonald is now just two strikeouts away from breaking the career strikeout record at FSU.

ANN ARBOR, MI - Florida State fought hard against the No. 6 Michigan Wolverines, but would fall 6-2 in game one of the Wednesday doubleheader. The Seminoles' Tiffany McDonald struck out five batters to move closer to breaking the all-time career strikeout record at Florida State. She now needs just two more before the end of the year to take over the No. 1 spot currently held by Jessica van der Linden with 899.

Michigan was on the board in the second, scoring Maggie Viefhaus on an RBI single from lead-off hitter Alessandra Giampaolo with the bases loaded. Florida State would not reach base until the top of the third as junior Michelle Snyder drew a walk off Jordan Taylor with one out.

Junior Jessica Gilmore notched the first hit for the Seminoles in the top of the fourth as she pounded one to the right fielder with Brittany Osmon stepping up to the plate. Osmon leads the Seminoles with 41 RBI's and would ground out to the first baseman, placing Gilmore in scoring position. A questionable strike zone would prevent FSU from scoring as Robin Ahrberg struck out to end the inning for the Garnet and Gold.

Freshman shortstop Ashley Stager made a nice decision to tag out the runner on third and allow the batter to reach on a fielder's choice, preventing Michigan from scoring. Regardless, with two outs the Wolverines managed to extend their lead to 2-0 as Teddi Ewing scored from second on another RBI single by Giampaolo.

Florida State would get on the board in the sixth as two runs would close the gap to 4-2 in favor of Michigan. Sophomore Carly Wynn started off the inning with a solid single to right field with Whitney Buckmon on deck. A Buckmon singled bunt would place Wynn in scoring position and both would move up as Gilmore put down a sacrifice bunt. With runners on second and third, Michigan's pitcher would make the mistake of throwing a wild pitch that scored Wynn and move Buckmon to third. An error on the catcher on the same play brought Buckmon home and prevented the shutout.

Despite their efforts, the Seminoles would not score again as the Wolverines pushed away in the sixth and scored two more to seal the win, final score 6-2 as both teams head into the second game of the doubleheader.

MICHIGAN 8, FLORIDA STATE 4
04/30/2008, ANN ARBOR, MI

From the FSU Website, seminoles.com.

Florida State suffers a doubleheader sweep by No. 6 Michigan on the road.

The Seminoles stayed tough and scored four runs in the loss to the Wolverines.

ANN ARBOR, MI - Florida State took an early lead but would fall once again to No. 6 Michigan on Alumni Field with a heartbreaking 8-4 loss, slipping to 36-25 on the season. Despite the loss, the Seminoles were able to score more runs off of Michigan than any team since the Wolverines gave up four to Wisconsin on April 11.

In the second game of the doubleheader it would be the Seminoles who started off the scoring in the top of the first with lead-off hitter Carly Wynn singling to the second baseman, followed by a sacrifice bunt by Whitney Buckmon to move up Wynn one base. With one out, Jessica Gilmore grounded out to second and would advance Wynn to third as sophomore designated player Robin Ahrberg stepped up to bring in the RBI with a single to right field.

Michigan would answer with a run of its own in the first, tying it up at one apiece. No runs would score in the second but Florida State would take control of the third inning as the Seminoles scored two runs off Michigan pitcher Nikki Nemitz.

Freshman Kristie McConn reached on a fielder's choice and would score off a double to center from Wynn to pull ahead 2-1. It would be Wynn who scores the third run for FSU as Buckmon grounded out to the first baseman for the second out of the inning. Gilmore reached on a single to the shortstop but a ground out to Nemitz from Ahrberg would end the third for the Noles as they take the 3-1 lead over Michigan.

But the Wolverines could not be contained as they once again answered Florida State in the bottom of the third to tie it up at three apiece. A single to McConn put the lead-off batter, Alessandra Giampaolo, on base and she would advance to second on a sacrifice bunt. It would be Michigan power hitter Samantha Findlay whose 19th home run of the season cleared the bases and scored two for the Wolverines.

With the score tied at three, Michigan ran away with the fourth inning and scored five earned runs off of Terese Gober before she would be relieved by junior south paw Melissa May. Gober gave up 11 hits, eight runs, two walks and struck out three in 3.1 innings pitched. With the 8-4 loss to Michigan, Gober is now 10-11 on the season with a 3.17 ERA.

Florida State would score just one last time in the top of the fifth as Wynn picked up her third run of the game on a Buckmon double to centerfield. Wynn led the Seminoles going 2-for-4 with three runs and one RBI. She also tops the team with a season average of .372 after 61 games.

Seminoles down Eagles with grand slam homer in bottom of ninth to win game one of the ACC Tournament.

Senior and All-ACC second team member Brittany Osmon recorded her seventh season home run with the bases loaded.

COLLEGE PARK, MD - In the first game of the 2008 Atlantic Coast Conference Softball Championships, third seed Florida State charged back from a 1-1 tie for the victory over sixth-seeded Boston College after a grand slam homer from 2008 All-ACC second team member Brittany Osmon sealed the deal in the ninth inning. The 5-1 win moves the Seminoles to game seven on Friday, May 9 against the winner of the Virginia Tech and Maryland match-up happening on Thursday.

Osmon, a senior from San Diego, Calif., cranked her seventh home run of the season and her first grand slam this year with one out against Boston College's Allison Gage. The south paw is now batting a .308 average and continues to lead the team with 45 RBI's.

"It felt really good, awesome actually," Osmon said. "The best part was watching Tiffany [McDonald] run down third base with me. After I made contact I knew it was going out and I was pretty happy."

Notching her 17th win of the season was Tiffany McDonald, also named to the second team All-ACC, who needed just two strikeouts against Boston College to break the all-time strikeout record at Florida State. The senior did just that and more as she stuck out 13 Eagles to set the new record at 911, shattering the previous 899 set by Jessica van der Linden in 2004.

"It feels pretty good [to break the record]," McDonald said. "I feel honored to be in the top at Florida State with Jessica van der Linden. I know her personally and she's a great woman. Being able to break a record is awesome and then to help my team win the first game of the ACC Tournament is great; I couldn't ask for a better start."

Despite Boston College scoring first in the top of the fifth off a triple from Amanda Booth, FSU answered right back in the bottom of the inning as junior Michelle Snyder scored from second on a single to center by sophomore and All-ACC first team member Carly Wynn.

With the score tied at one apiece, it would be a pitcher's duel that would lead into extra innings with no more runners scoring in regulation. In the top of the eighth, it would be three up and three down for BC while the Seminoles would get into scoring position thanks to a single from Osmon who then advanced to third on a walked batter and fly out to right field. Despite those efforts, FSU would not cross home plate and the game would roll into inning number nine.

The Eagles would once again send three batters up to be sent back to the dugout as McDonald struck out two and the third grounded out to Kristie McConn at second. With the game time reaching just over two hours long, the Garnet and Gold took control in the bottom of the inning with McConn singling to center to get things started.

Boston College then intentionally walked heavy-hitter Wynn, who went 2-for-3 with one RBI, as All-ACC second teamer Whitney Buckmon used her speed as she laid down a bunt and reached first safely. With bases loaded, a pop-up to third from Jessica Gilmore put one out on the board and brought in Osmon who swung on the fifth pitch to clinch the win for FSU.

Florida State falls out of ACC Championship after 2-0 loss to Virginia Tech.

The Seminoles are now 37-26 as they wait to hear about advancing to the NCAA Regionals later this month.

COLLEGE PARK, MD - The third-seeded Florida State softball team returned to the field to play second-seed Virginia Tech On Saturday as the ACC Championships continued after consistent rain postponed the tournament on Friday. With the championship moved to a single elimination bracket, the Hokies took the 2-0 win in the semi-finals to eliminate the Seminoles from the tournament.

Despite her best efforts on the mound, senior Tiffany McDonald struck out just three batters while giving up four hits and two earned runs. The starting pitcher is now 17-11 and improved her career strikeouts to 914, a new FSU record she set in the win over Boston College on Thursday.

Virginia Tech was on the board in the third inning, with Erin Ota and Misty Hall taking two runs off of McDonald. The Seminoles would get into scoring position in the top of the fourth when Whitney Buckmon struck out swinging but reached first on a passed ball. The senior left fielder then stole second, but would not clear the bases and it would be the last time the Noles would reach base in the game.

Florida State Drops Game One of Tuscaloosa Regional to Jacksonville State.

The Seminoles gave up an early lead to fall 4-3 to the Gamecocks.

TUSCALOOSA, AL - Florida State got out to a rocky start at the NCAA Regional on Thursday, dropping to Jacksonville State at the Alabama Softball Complex in Tuscaloosa, Ala. The Seminoles gave up an early lead to fall 4-3 to the Gamecocks in game one of the tournament.

Despite the Gamecocks scoring early in the first, it was Florida State that took the lead after one complete inning. The Seminoles scored three and would hold the lead until JSU powered back in the fourth and fifth to edge FSU 4-3.

Senior Whitney Buckmon started things off for Florida State, bunting to the pitcher and using her speed to out run the throw, safely reaching first. Buckmon stole her 25th base of the season and continued to third on an error by JSU's second baseman. Sophomore Robin Ahrberg hit a hopper to the infield and reached on a fielder's choice after the Gamecocks were unsuccessful in throwing out Buckmon at home.

Ahrberg would score from third as Ashley Stager was hit by a pitch for the 15th time this year. A groundout to second by Monica Montez would score Brittany Osmon and push the Noles ahead 3-1.

JSU made a comeback in the fourth, scoring one run as Kayla Collins doubled to score Jackie Jarman. Collins is an FSU transfer and older sister to current Seminole freshman Allison Collins.

With the gap closing, Florida State would not score in the fourth as Terese Gober entered for starting pitcher Tiffany McDonald in the top of the fifth. Unfortunately, the sophomore would give up two hits and two earned runs, giving the Gamecocks the 4-3 lead.

The Seminoles would not come back from the one-run deficit, with Gober taking the loss and dropping to a 3.19 ERA. After six innings pitched, McDonald struck out seven to extend her school career record to 921 and gave up six hits, two runs (one earned) and walked two. McDonald is now throwing a 1.62 ERA.

Seminoles Eliminated After Splitting Two At Tuscaloosa Regional.

Florida State defeated Chattanooga 5-3, but fell 10-1 to Jacksonville State.

TUSCALOOSA, AL - Following an exciting 5-3 extra-inning win over Chattanooga, Florida State was eliminated from the NCAA Regional after falling 10-1 in five to Jacksonville State. Seminole pitcher Tiffany McDonald notched a single-game high 17 K's in the win and now holds the FSU all-time strikeout record with 939.

The Garnet and Gold came out fighting in game one on Friday against the Chattanooga Lady Mocs after dropping to Jacksonville State on Thursday. FSU was on the board in the second as Jessica Gilmore scored off a nice bunt single from junior Michelle Snyder. The Seminoles extended their lead to 2-0 in the third as Whitney Buckmon scoring off an RBI single from fellow senior Brittany Osmon.

The Lady Mocs refused to give up as they tied it up with a two-RBI homer from first baseman Michelle Fuzzard in the bottom of the seventh, dragging the game into extra innings.

FSU answered in the top of the eighth, scoring three earned runs off a Gilmore single and a single to left from freshman Ashley Stager. Chattanooga would crank another homer in the bottom of the inning, but McDonald's 17th strikeout plus two ground-outs would end the game and advance the Seminoles on to play JSU in a re-match.

The win is the third extra-inning victory for FSU this year as the Seminoles remain undefeated against Chattanooga, notching their eighth win all-time.

Much like Thursday's game, Florida State started out with a slight lead after scoring Stager on an error by the Gamecock's catcher. Unfortunately, that would be the only run FSU would take from its opponents as Jacksonville State dominated the last three innings.

Junior south paw Melissa May would take the loss, her third this season, after giving up five runs, two earned, in 3.1 innings pitched. Sophomore Terese Gober entered in the bottom of the fourth to relieve, but after giving three runs and no strikeouts, veteran McDonald was called from the bullpen in hopes of a save. She would give up two runs, one earned, on two hits and one strikeout before JSU clinched the win with a two-run homer from pinch hitter Alana Hicks.

The two losses to the Gamecocks are the first in the all-time series for FSU in six meetings. The Seminoles have outscored JSU 29-18 overall.

As the season comes to an end for Florida State, three seniors will leave their mark in the record books. McDonald is now No. 1 all-time with 939 strikeouts, No. 2 with 163 appearances and No. 2 after 898.9 innings pitched. Osmon is now No. 3 with 1,204 putouts, tied for No. 6 with 17 home runs and No. 6 with 166 RBI's. Buckmon is also in the books at No. 7 with 73 stolen bases in her career.

Seminoles Eliminated After Splitting Two At Tuscaloosa Regional.

Florida State defeated Chattanooga 5-3, but fell 10-1 to Jacksonville State.

TUSCALOOSA, AL - Following an exciting 5-3 extra-inning win over Chattanooga, Florida State was eliminated from the NCAA Regional after falling 10-1 in five to Jacksonville State. Seminole pitcher Tiffany McDonald notched a single-game high 17 K's in the win and now holds the FSU all-time strikeout record with 939.

The Garnet and Gold came out fighting in game one on Friday against the Chattanooga Lady Mocs after dropping to Jacksonville State on Thursday. FSU was on the board in the second as Jessica Gilmore scored off a nice bunt single from junior Michelle Snyder. The Seminoles extended their lead to 2-0 in the third as Whitney Buckmon scoring off an RBI single from fellow senior Brittany Osmon.
