FSU softball team gears up
The FSU softball team took to Florida for its annual Florida Rebel Spring Games Tournament in Kissimmee. With the long distance traveling, the Bulldogs could not find a way to win it this year as they fell by the score of 6-2 against Shippensburg College. Junior pitcher Dana Bowler pitched the entire contest, giving up six runs on 10 hits. The Bulldogs managed to score only two runs on seven hits, marking a disappointing tournament for the Bulldogs. The season mark for FSU is now 6-8 overall and the Bulldogs now head home for their home opener against Aquinas College on March 19 at 3:30 p.m.
