The Seminoles capped off a two-game sweep of Washington in the Women's College World Series finals with an 8-3 Game 2 win over the Huskies Tuesday evening. Florida State opened the championship series with a 1-0 victory Monday night in Game 1.

This marks Florida State's first national championship in its 10th trip to the WCWS, and the Atlantic Coast Conference's first title as well. The Seminoles became the first team in DI history to win the title after losing on the first day of the NCAA tournament. FSU won a total of six games en route to the championship.
