A fantastic run came to an end on Thursday. In the decisive game of the Women’s College World Series, Florida State softball fell to top-seeded Oklahoma, 5-1.

Solo home runs by Jocelyn Alo and Jayda Coleman over the first two innings set the tone for Oklahoma. The lone run for the Seminoles came on a misplayed pop-up by Sydney Sherrill in the third.
