Florida State freshman Cassidy Davis stole the show as the No. 3 Seminoles defeated the Lady Rattlers Wednesday night by a score of 5-0.

Davis recorded the win after going six strong innings, allowing zero runs, two hits, and six strikeouts.

The freshman star got it done with her bat as well, as she went 2-2 at the plate with an RBI double that bounced off the top of the left field wall, just inches away from her first career home run.

When asked about the performance of her first year player Florida State coach Lonni Alameda said “She is a very talented freshman, she can hit, and having the ability to pick and choose games we can throw her or have her come in after our ace is just a really nice luxury for now, this season, and the future.”

Davis, who was making her first college start at pitcher, said she was a bit nervous coming into the game, but was calmed by the fact that there were six upperclassmen in the field behind her.

Being able to help yourself on the mound, by driving in runs will also help.

“It helps the team, I can come in if they need me to hit or if they need me to pitch, I can just kind of play my role for the team.”

With this loss the Lady Rattlers fall to 0-6 on the season. But redshirt Sophomore Nachelle Watson was very optimistic, “we have been playing really well against very tough teams, we are one big play, one big hit away from possibly winning some of these games.”

Lady Rattlers assistant coach Constance Orr also, felt that her team was right there with FSU, “a couple of big hits, a couple of plays we could’ve made, we would be right there with them”

Orr was not impressed with how the team played against FSU, but was encouraged to see that they worked hard, and didn’t give up.

“Our pitching staff has done a great job this season, we held the number three team in the nation to just two earned runs, I think that’s a great job.”


In their six contests this season four of those have come against nationally ranked opponents.

The Seminoles will host Nebraska, and Northwestern this weekend for the Big Ten, ACC Softball challenge at JoAnn Graf Field.

The Lady Rattlers tough schedule will continue this weekend as they travel to Gainesville for the Florida Invitational, where they will play six games in all. Two against Florida International, one against University of Maryland, one against Northwestern Louisiana State, and one against No. 1 ranked University of Florida.
