April 10, 2000

TALLAHASSEE, Fla. — Florida State’s Marshall McDougall garnered
Player of the Week honors from the Atlantic Coast Conference after
leading the top-ranked Seminoles to a 4-0 record last week, including a
three-game sweep of No. 12 Miami for the first time since 1993.

McDougall hit .522 (12-for-23) in four games with eight runs,
eight RBI, two doubles, one triple and one home run. He went 6-for-9 in
FSU’s 14-13 17-inning win over Miami Friday night and had four RBI.
McDougall’s two run double in the bottom of the ninth forced extra
innings in that game.

The junior from Valrico, FL, is hitting .453 (24-for-53) this
season against ranked opponents with 20 runs, 13 RBI, five doubles, one
triple, three homers and a .755 slugging percentage. The Seminoles are
9-2 in those games this year.


The Florida State baseball team (35-5)
retained its No. 1 ranking in the Baseball America, Collegiate Baseball
and Baseball Weekly/ESPN Top 25 Polls after posting a 4-0 record this
week. FSU received 42-of-43 possible first place votes in the ESPN
Coaches’ Poll. The ACC has five of the top 15 teams in the country as
four other ACC teams (Clemson, Georgia Tech, Wake Forest and UNC) are
ranked among the top 15 in each of the three polls.

The Seminoles host Jacksonvile at home on Wednesday (6:00 p.m.)
before traveling to Miami for three more games with the Hurricanes over
the weekend.
