The Daily Nole — July 6, 2018: FSU Softball’s Warren Among Final Eight for ESPY

Maury Neipris/FSU athletics

It’s Friday, Florida State fans. As your day comes along and the weekend nears, keep it here for the latest in FSU athletics. The news and notes section of this post will be updated throughout the day.

Lead Story

Florida State softball third baseman Jessie Warren is among eight remaining for an ESPY for best play.

Warren’s play came in the first game of the national championship series as she made an incredible diving catch on a bunt attempt before throwing to first for a double play. The play came in the seventh inning to help the Seminoles preserve a 1-0 win to open the series against Washington. FSU clinched its first national championship the following night with an 8-3 victory.

Warren’s play advanced past the round of 16 after she received more votes than Jocelyne Lamoureux-Davidson’s goal to deliver Team USA the gold medal in women’s ice hockey in the Winter Olympics. Warren’s play is the fifth seed in the bracket and is paired up with the No. 4 seed, which was Alabama football’s Tua Tagovailoa’s game-winning touchdown pass to Devonta Smith in overtime to push the Crimson Tide past Georgia for the national championship.
