For the first time in program history, the Florida State Seminoles are Women’s College World Series champions. It also marked the first softball championship for the Atlantic Coast Conference.
The Seminoles swept Washington in the best-of-three series, taking the first game 1-0 and the second 8-3 behind eight unanswered runs in Tuesday's clincher. Senior Jessie Warren was named Women's College World Series Most Outstanding Player after batting 5-for-8 with a home run, two doubles and two RBIs in the two championship series games.
Here’s what Twitter had to say about Florida State’s championship performance:
