On Tuesday, Florida State softball player Brandi Stuart will stop by to chat about the Seminoles trip to the Women’s College World Series.
Win three games in one afternoon and you get to go to the Women’s College World Series. That was the daunting task facing the 21st-ranked Seminole softball team (53-18-0) when they arrived at the park on Sunday and they did just that. Florida State completed its improbable run to the school’s sixth World Series by downing No. 5 seed Georgia Tech 6-1 in the final game at the 2002 NCAA Region 8 tournament. Stuart, a junior second baseman, walked three times in Sunday’s win and was named to the All-Tournament Team.
This season, Stuart started all 71 games hitting .401 with team-high 10 home runs and 45 RBI. The Cerritos, California native led the team with 77 hits, 62 runs and .672 slugging percent. She was named to the All-Southeast Region team and was also named a Verizon District III Academic All-American for the second consecutive season. Stuart was invited to Team USA Softball National Team Camp and is just the second Seminole to ever be invited to try out for the U.S. National Team.
While Stuart will not be stopping by until 3:30 p.m. ET on Tuesday, feel free to submit your questions now and we will save them for her arrival.
