TALLAHASSEE, Fla. – Florida State’s Terese Gober has accomplished a great deal in her three-and-a-half year softball career and now she can call herself an Atlantic Coast Conference Pitcher of the Week for the first time.
League officials officially gave her that honor Tuesday afternoon after an impressive week in which she earned her second-career no-hitter and set a new personal best with 14 strikeouts against Boston College.
“I am very honored to be recognized by the ACC,” Gober said. “I have worked hard my entire career and it is nice to be noticed. It’s a great honor and one that I could never have achieved without my teammates and coaches.”
Gober’s fantastic showing against the Eagles on March 27 propelled the Seminoles (31-6, 4-2 ACC) to a 6-0 win in the second game of a doubleheader at home.
The following day, the McDonough, Ga., native tossed the first four innings of an 11-3 run-rule victory over Boson College to cap off the sweep. In that game, she struck out six and gave up just two hits.
Earlier in the week, Gober pitched the first two innings of a 4-3 win over then-No. 7/10 Georgia, allowing just one earned run on three hits.
Gober currently ranks among the ACC’s top-10 in several categories, including third by allowing opposing batters to hit just .150.
Next up for Gober and the ‘Noles is the team’s first conference road series of the season at Maryland. The Seminoles and Terrapins will square off in College Park, Md. on Saturday at 1 pm. and 3 p.m. and on Sunday at 1 p.m.
