Seminoles advance to Women’s College World Series Semifinals

Seminoles advance to Women’s College World Series Semifinals


OKLAHOMA CITY, Oklahoma. Florida State’s third-seeded softball team (57-9) earned a spot in the semifinals of the Women’s College World Series after a hard-fought 3-1 victory over seventh-seeded Washington (44-14) at OGE Energy Field. This marks the Seminoles’ first-ever 2–0 start to the WCWS and fourth straight WCWS journey en route to the National Semifinals.

Devyn Flaherty led off the bottom of the second with a blistering double to center right before Mack Leonard reached first on an error by Washington’s third baseman. Designated player Katie Dack then singled into rightfield on a full count to load the bases with one out.

Josie Muffley, in another clutch situation, singled out to the right to bring the runners over one base, enabling Flaherty to score the first run for the Seminoles. After a pitching change by the Huskies, Kaley Mudge skied into left field for a sac-fly on which Leonard scored to lift the lead to 2-0 after two innings.

Kathryn Sandercock came in relief during the second inning and cruised through the middle innings with nine consecutive batters retired and gave up no extra hits for 3.2 innings. Washington was able to score a run in the sixth to cut FSU’s lead to 2-1 with a runner on first and one out. A groundout moved the UW-runner to second base and a third run tied the game 20 yards from home. Sandercock then forced a groundout to Flaherty to stop the dangerous situation. Sandercock forced eight groundouts and gave up only one extra hit on 90 pitches in 5.2 innings. She moved into third place on the program’s all-time wins list with the 107th career win.

Flaherty was the first Seminole batter in the bottom of the sixth and continued her great night with a single for her second hit of the game. The team leader in stolen bases made her mark again when she stole second place, her 31st steal of the season, and scored her second run of the game after Leonard again reached on an error that restored FSU’s two-run lead.

In the top of the seventh, Washington hit two singles to put the tying run on base. Mudge caught the first out and quickly threw back to the infield to keep the runners on first and second base. The next batter fired a ball destined for the outfield to probably score a run, but Muffley made a stunning leap to get the ball and shot to second for the unbelievable double play that ended the game.

The Seminoles await the winner of Sunday night’s elimination game between Tennessee and Oklahoma State on Monday at 7 p.m. ET on ESPN.
