THE FLATS – After six-straight non-conference matchups, Georgia Tech softball resumes Atlantic Coast Conference action this weekend, hosting No. 14 Florida State at Mewborn Field for a three-game series Friday-Sunday, March 30-April 1.
Week seven recap:
The Jackets went 3-2 on last week’s road trip to California as part of the Matador Classic hosted by CSUN. Tech took wins against Pacific, Cal Poly and Santa Clara. Its 11-0 run-rule victory over Santa Clara was Tech’s fifth run-rule win of the season, surpassing the 2017 total. The win also marked the Jackets’ 19th win of the season, tying the total from last season. The Jackets dropped a midweek matchup to Georgia State on Wednesday, 3-2.
Florida State leads the all-time series 58-26, taking the last 12 meetings. The Jackets last win over the Seminoles came in 2012 in the ACC tournament semifinals en route to winning the ACC Championship. Tech topped then-No. 19 Florida State 9-1 in the semifinals before beating Virginia Tech 9-1 (5) for the championship title. Volunteer assistant coach Kate Kantor was a senior on the team and was named to the all-tournament team. Now head coach Aileen Morales was an assistant on the staff at the time.
