TALLAHASSEE, Fla. – The No. 20 Florida State softball team lost its final regular-season home game Sunday to Georgia Tech, 5-2.

The Seminoles (39-14, 10-8 Atlantic Coast Conference) were looking to take the series against the Yellow Jackets (43-8, 16-2) but ultimately couldn’t come back after a three-run Georgia Tech fifth inning.

Junior Sarah Hamilton got the loss for the ‘Noles. The Tallahassee native pitched three innings, gave up one run and struck out three. Playing in her final home game as a Seminole, senior Terese Gober tossed four innings, gave up one run and struck out four.

Offensively, seniors Monica Montez and Courtney Rosen went out with a bang as they both registered an RBI. Senior Carly Wynn, sophomore Shayla Jackson and freshman Morgan Bullock all had hits.

The Seminoles untied a 0-0 score in the bottom of the second thanks to some timely hitting.

With Ashley Stager and Kristie McConn on second and first, respectively, Montez sent a run home with a single to center field.

Rosen then followed that up with an RBI single her own.

Georgia Tech got a run back in the third and threatened to add more. But a miraculous catch by Bullock at the wall prevented any further Yellow Jackets damage.

That changed in the fifth, though, as the ‘Noles committed two errors and Georgia Tech captured a 4-2 lead with three runs.

The Yellow Jackets then added a run in the top of the seventh.

Next up for Florida State is the team’s final regular-season series of the year. FSU will travel to play at the University of Virginia May 1-2.
