TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (WTXL) — The Florida State Softball team returned to Tallahassee after competing in the three-game National Championship.

The No. 10-nationally seeded FSU Softball team fell to top-seeded Oklahoma, 5-1 on Thursday.

The series may not have ended the way Florida State fans were hoping for; however, the garnet and gold support were out in full swing to welcome the Seminoles back.


"It was kind of emotional for me being a senior being my last trip around," said redshirt senior Cassidy Davis of seeing the fan support Friday."It was really cool seeing all these fans coming out to support us and so proud of all of our accomplishments."

"Overwhelming in the beginning," laughed head coach Lonni Alameda. "I knew the water cannons were coming, I get excited about water cannons, I think that's really special and fun. I had no idea about the amount of people, and the band. How cool is the band? It's just really special."

After fighting their way out of the loser bracket, FSU went toe to toe with the number one team in the nation and found themselves one win away from national title number two in program history.
