Despite an early three run deficit at the end of the top of the first inning the resurgent ‘Noles bounced back in the bottom half to cut the lead to only one run. A three run second inning gave the Seminoles the lead. Meghan King delivered another dominating performance for the second night in a row and the Seminoles never looked back winning by a final score of 8-3. Jessie Warren was named Most Outstanding Player of the series.

In 34 years of Florida State softball the program has never had a losing season and have had at least 40 wins every year. The Seminoles do have two national titles under their belt, back to back AIAW slow-pitch titles in 1981 and 1982. But this is their first NCAA title in 31 tournament appearances and ten visits to the College World Series. They were also the first ACC team to play for and win a national title.

Time to celebrate the amazing season and awesome accomplishment by one of the most successful programs in softball history. Below are reactions from social media on the win.
