THE LADY SEMINOLES IN LAST YEAR'S ACC TOURNEY
FSU won its fifth straight ACC title and seventh overall with a 3-0 sweep in last year's ACC Tournament. Here's a quick look...
* FSU defeated North Carolina 2-1 in 10 innings to start things off. Danielle Cox kept the Tribe alive with an in-the-park home run in the seventh inning to tie the game. Kimmy Carter hit a sacrifice fly in the bottom of the 10th to score Cox and advance FSU to the semi-finals.
* FSU shutout UVA in the semifinals, 1-0, scoring its lone run in the first inning.
* FSU and UVA would meet again in the championship game and the Lady Seminoles would again prevail, 3-0. The contest went scoreless until the fifth inning, when Becky Wallace pinch hit and drove in Tami Post. Dana Bailey also scored in the inning on a wild pitch and Becky Brock on a fielder's choice.
* Tami Post, Teresa Edenfield and Stacy Venable all earned ACC All-Tournament team honors, while Danielle Cox was named MVP.

WHY IMPORTANT?
Sweeping East Carolina was important for many reasons. Not only were wins over a ranked regional opponent advantageous, but wins over a Southern Atlantic Alliance opponent was most beneficial. The five ACC schools and East Carolina make up the Southern Atlantic Alliance. All six teams play a doubleheader throughout the season and the team with the best record at the end of that competition, earns an automatic bid to regionals. FSU is currently in second place in the SAA and will play doubleheaders with Virginia and Maryland, May 3rd and 4th. The SAA standings are ...
UNC 6-2
FSU 4-2
UVA 5-3
Maryland 4-4
Ga. Tech 3-7
E. Carolina 2-6

GET THE BROOM OUT
The Tribe has recorded 10 sweeps this season, including three in a row.

GO-TO GIRL
FSU has won 10 of its last 12 games and Leslie Malerich is most of the reason. Malerich earned eight of those victories and was the pitcher of record, going 8-2, in 10 straight games from April 8th to April 21st.

ON A ROLL
Brandi Stuart is on a current 10-game streak and has hit safely in 17 of the last 20 games. She now has 19 multi-hit games and is also closing in on teammate Serita Brooks in the stolen base department. Stuart now has 32 steals on the year and has recorded at least one in eight of the last nine games.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO ME
Natalie Bennett hit her second home run of the season, and first in-the-park home run, in game two vs. Campbell on April 22nd, which just happens to be Bennett's birthday!

NOLES SWEEP WEEKLY HONORS FOR SECOND STRAIGHT WEEK
FSU swept the ACC weekly softball honors for April 24th, making it the second consecutive week the Tribe has done so. This time it was Brandi Stuart as player of the week while Leslie Malerich was named the league's pitcher of the week for the sixth time this season. The duo led the Noles to a 4-0 record over the past week.

* Stuart posted a .583 batting average by going 7-for-12 in the four games. She drove in four runs, scored five runs and had four steals and turned in a slugging percentage of .833.
* Malerich tossed a pair of complete-game shutouts against No. 24 East Carolina. She allowed just five hits, all singles, in 14 innings, struck out eight and walked just two in facing 49 batters.

ACC PITCHER OF THE WEEK #5
Leslie Malerich was named the ACC Pitcher of the Week for April 17th. She was once again dominant on the mound as she went 4-1 for the week with a pair of shutout victories. She opened the week with a complete-game, 7-0 win at Florida A&M, and followed that outing with another complete-game, 7-0 win over Auburn in the first game of a twin bill. In the second game of FSU's doubleheader with North Carolina, the sophomore hurler entered the contest with one out in the first inning and the Seminoles trailing by a 4-0 score. She proceeded to shut out the Tar Heels for the remaining 6.2 innings en route to her fourth win of the week, a 5-4 decision.

BRANDON EARNS LEAGUE HONOR
Junior Staci Brandon was named the ACC Player of the Week for April 17th after going 10-for-23 (.435) with eight RBI and six runs scored. In the first game of the doubleheader with Auburn, Brandon went 3-for-4 with two RBI and a run scored. Against UNC, she went 3-for-8 in the two games, including a two-run triple in game one. She also drove in the winning run in game two.

NEW HIGH
FSU set a new season-high with 14 hits in game two of the DH with Auburn on April 15th, but only eight of the hits were in the first seven innings. FSU tied its previous season-high for hits with 13 in its 7-0 win in game one and all nine starters got hits in the game.

RIPPING IT
The Lady Seminoles have recorded double digit hits in 12 games overall this season, including five of the last nine games. FSU is 11-1 in those contests with its only loss coming to Auburn, 5-4, in 13 innings.

PUTTING A STOP TO 'EM
Prior to Auburn's run in the 13th inning in game two, Leslie Malerich had pitched 25.1 consecutive innings without giving up a run. She pitched 16 innings that Saturday alone.

TOO MANY HITS
Auburn belted 16 hits in the second game of the doubleheader (10 in first seven hittings). It's the most hits that FSU pitching has allowed this season. UNC had 10 hits in the first game on Sunday, marking just the third time this season that FSU pitching has allowed double-digit hits. FSU has a 1-2 record in those games.

MARATHON GAME
Game two of the Auburn series went 13 innings, three hours and 52 minutes. The two teams combined for 30 hits. The 13 innings is the most innings FSU has played in a game this season. It now makes the Tribe 2-6 in extra-inning ball games this season. Prior to the game with Auburn, the Lady Seminoles went nine innings in a 1-0 win over Bethune-Cookman on Feb. 19.

WHITE-STOKES IS BACK
Junior pitcher Jenn White-Stokes, who had been suffering from bicep tendonitis in her pitching arm and had not made a pitching appearance since April 1st, saw four innings of action on Saturday, April 15th vs. Auburn. She faced 21 batters, allowed four earned runs on eight hits and walked one. She was not the pitcher of record. She had her first complete game since March 24th against Campbell on April 22nd. She struck out five and allowed only five hits in the 7-1 win.

FSU AND FAMU
With its 7-0 win on April 12th, FSU went 5-0 vs. the Rattlerettes this season. In two of those games, the Tribe eight-run ruled FAMU in five innings and three games were shutouts. FSU's last loss to FAMU was on April 14th, 1999.

SHUTTING 'EM OUT!
Florida State pitching has produced 20 shutouts this season, including a no-hitter against Florida A&M and a perfect game against Princeton. Leslie Malerich leads the unit with 13 solo and two combined shutouts. The Lady Seminoles have been shutout seven times this year.

WASN'T IT JUST GRAND!
Freshman Brandi Stuart blasted a grand slam home run in the bottom of the seventh inning of game one vs. Florida to lift the Lady Seminoles to a 6-3 victory over the Gators. It was Stuart's first career grand slam and her second home run of the year. Stuart is the only freshman playing on the team this season (Beth Wade is redshirting).

FINALLY ERROR-FREE
After committing 14 errors in four games, April 1st and 2nd, the Tribe had four errors in the first game against UF. Finally, in the second game, the Lady Seminoles went error-free, snapping a 10-game streak of games with at least one error.

APRIL FOOL'S DAY BUT NO JOKE

MALERICH -- ACC HONORS #4

With a 3-0 record and a save in the UTC Frost Cutlery Challenge, she was named to the All-Tournament team and earned MVP honors. Malerich held opponents to a .172 batting average, allowing just two runs in 26 innings of work on the mound. She made five appearances for the week, with four starts and three complete games. She walked just six batters while striking out 21.

MORE ALL TOURNAMENT HONORS

Wallace batted .462 with two RBIs. Stuart batted .353 with three runs and three RBIs while Edenfield batted .316 with four RBIs.

COME-FROM-BEHIND
Florida State showed some real fight against Wisconsin in the final day of the UTC Frost Cutlery Challenge. Down 5-0 after two innings, the Tribe scored two runs in the fourth and then exploded for four runs on five hits in the seventh inning. After giving up five runs in the second inning, Jenn White-Stokes allowed just three Badger hits the next four innings and Leslie Malerich came into the game in the seventh to earn the save.

INSIDE-THE-PARK
Junior Serita Brooks used her speed to round the bases for her second home run of the season vs. Ohio, but first in-the-park home run. It is the third in-the-park home run for the Lady Seminoles this season as Jenn White-Stokes recorded one vs. FAMU on February 12th and Natalie Bennett had one on April 22nd vs. Campbell.

MULTI-BROOKS
Serita Brooks leads the team with 24 multi-hit games this season. The junior also has five multi-RBI games on the year. She also put together a hitting streak of 10 games between Feb. 16-27th.

Brooks hit .529 on 9-of-17, including a double and a triple, and scored two runs and drove in three others.

EDENFIELD CAME BACK STRONG
Senior Teresa Edenfield missed the majority of the FSU Invitational with a sprained left knee. She saw one at bat in the five games and it was a hit against Northern Iowa. Edenfield returned to action on Wednesday, March 22nd and played in all eight of FSU's games that week and what a week she had! Playing in all eight games, she batted .346 with nine hits, including two doubles, and a team-leading seven RBIs.

KEY HITS
Drake University transfer Natalie Bennett has 43 hits on the season and they have been key ones because the shortstop ranks third on the team with 27 RBIs off those hits!

ON THE BASEPATHS
