Sydney Sherrill was 2-for-3 at the plate for the Seminoles. She also connected on her FSU-record 25th double of the season, which moves her into a tie for 17th in NCAA single-season history.

“Quality day today,” FSU head coach Lonni Alameda said. “We had some chances early but just didn’t get the swing off the in the first couple of innings. We worked at-bats and situations later in the game and Meghan and Kylee had really good days in the circle. Now we get to wait and see who comes out of the Pitt and UNC game to have a real Atlantic versus Coastal ACC Championship Game tomorrow.”

The Championship Game between FSU and whoever wins the other matchup will be broadcast live on ESPN.
