Senior Courtney Senas highlighted the Florida State softball team’s excellent offensive day Saturday as she recorded 8 RBIs in a two-game sweep over top-25 foe Hofstra at the Unconquered Invitational at JoAnne Graf Field.

Florida State defeated Hofstra in game one by a 9-1 score in six innings and then defeated the Pride in game two, 4-0.

Senas, a Hawaii native, went 4-for-7 in two games against the Pride with one home run, two doubles and nine total bases. Arguably her biggest at-bat of the day was her final one in the tournament semifinals when she ripped a two-run single to give the Seminoles a cushion at 4-0 in game two, helping send Florida State to the tournament championship game.

The schedule has changed for the final day of the event. No. 2-seeded Florida State will play top-seeded Tulsa today with a new start time of 10 a.m. The Seminoles (7-1) are scheduled as the visiting team and will bat first. The consolation game between No. 3 seed Hofstra and fourth-seeded Arkansas will follow 30 minutes after.
