opens Sunshine State Conference schedule
BREVARD COUNTY, FLORIDA – Following a doubleheader sweep of Chestnut Hill Tuesday night, Florida Tech softball (14-3, 0-0 SSC) opens its Sunshine State Conference schedule by heading to Tampa (8-3, 0-0 SSC) for a three-game series on Friday and Saturday.
The two teams will open with a single game at 6 p.m. ET on Friday before wrapping up the series with a doubleheader on Saturday. The latter games are slated to take place at 1 p.m. and 3 p.m.
The Panthers’ top two pitchers were masterful against the Griffins. Taylor Smith retired all 13 batters she faced after replacing Amanda Kahn in FIT’s 5-3 walk-off win in game one.
Rachel Pence was equally impressive in the second game, tossing seven scoreless innings and allowing just a single hit as the Panthers cruised to a 7-0 victory.
The Spartans have dropped two of their last three contests. A 10-0 win at Ave Maria is sandwiched by a 9-3 loss at Palm Beach Atlantic and a 14-13 defeat at the hands of the Gyrenes.
