Updates on FSU softball results in the NCAA Softball Tournament against UCF


The Florida State softball team continues its 2024 NCAA Softball Tournament campaign today when it faces UCF for the second straight year in the Tallahassee Regional.

FSU, the No. 15 seed in the 2024 NCAA Tournament, defeated Chattanooga 3-2 on Friday. UCF defeated Auburn 11-6. The winner advances to Sunday's regional championship, while the loser must play again tonight against the winner of Auburn-Chattanooga for the other Sunday spot. The NCAA Regional is a double-elimination round. If the FSU-UCF winner loses on Sunday, the teams will play again for a spot in the super regionals.

The Seminoles (44-14, 19-5 in ACC) entered the NCAA Tournament with the sixth-best offense in the country, led by sluggers Michaela Edenfield, Kalei Harding and star freshman Jaysoni Beachum. FSU's other star freshman, Isa Torres, scored the winning run Friday with a sacrifice fly in the sixth inning before a triple from Devyn Flaherty gave them the lead for good. The Knights (31-23, 12-15 in Big 12) are led by first-team All-Big 12 pitcher Sarah Willis, who threw five innings in relief to earn the win against Auburn, and first baseman Shannon Doherty , whose one three-run home run sparked a six-run sixth inning.
