Happy hump day, Florida State fans. As your week gets ready to head downhill, 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

For the last half-decade, Florida State softball has dominated the ACC and this season, that includes the weekly awards. On Tuesday, seniors Carsyn Gordon and Meghan King were each honored by the conference.

Gordon was named ACC Player of the Week after going 9-for-14 at the plate last week in five games. Gordon also scored six runs and stole five bases in the five games — wins over Florida A&M, North Florida and three vs. NC State. It is the first honor of the season for Gordon and third of her career.

King was named ACC Pitcher of the Week for the fourth time this season and ninth time in her career. King threw her fourth career no-hitter in Friday’s win over NC State and threw 11 shutout innings in the series.

Gordon and King will look to continue their domination as FSU hits the road for the first time in ACC play. The Seminoles will face Virginia for three games, beginning on Friday.
