Lead Story

In a match-up of top ACC softball teams, Florida State softball outslugged North Carolina on Sunday, 8-6.

The contest was tied 4-4 entering the sixth inning before a Dani Morgan solo home run and a 2-run triple by Cali Harrod provided some breathing room for FSU. Morgan was 3-for-4 with a pair of runs scored while Sydney Sherrill also homered for the Seminoles. Sherrill, Harrod and Zoe Casas all plated two runs in the victory.

Brittany Pickett homered twice and drove in four runs for the Tar Heels, but was also the losing pitcher. Meghan King earned the win for FSU to improve to 20-3 on the season.
