CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. - The University of Virginia softball team will wrap up regular season Atlantic Coast Conference play with a doubleheader against 17th-ranked Florida State at the Seminole Softball Complex on Saturday (April 28). The doubleheader, which begins at 1:00 p.m., will be televised on a tape-delayed basis on Sunday, April 29 at 1:00 p.m. on the Sunshine Network.
The Cavaliers, who have won 12 consecutive games, enter Saturday's doubleheader at Florida State with a 49-13 overall record and 4-2 mark in the ACC. Virginia is also 5-3 in the Southern Atlantic Softball Alliance. The 17th-ranked Seminoles are 47-7 overall, 3-1 in the ACC and 5-1 in the SASA.
