It’s the weekend, Florida State fans. As you get set to enjoy your day with family and friends, 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

The 2019 USA Softball Collegiate Player of the Year watch list was released earlier this week and a pair of Florida State players made the list.

Among the 50 players to earn the preseason recognition were FSU pitcher Meghan King and infielder Sydney Sherrill. King, a redshirt senior, set a Women’s College World Series record for lowest ERA last season en route to leading Florida State to its first national championship as a fastpitch program. King finished the year 26-6 with a 1.17 ERA.

The ACC Freshman of the Year last season, Sherrill led the nation in doubles with 29. She’s FSU’s returning leader in batting average (.370), hits (81), doubles, home runs (12) and RBIs (58).

FSU opens the season at home on Friday against UNC-Wilimgton.
