On Saturday night the Noles from Florida High clinched their spot in Lakeland as they defeated Fernandina Beach 53-49 in overtime.

Despite allowing the Pirates to finish on a 17-4 run which included the shot that put the game into overtime, the Noles outlasted their opponent in the final minutes, sinking clutch free throw after clutch free throw.

Sarah McCrackin and Jordan Rosier led the way as FSU claimed their spot in the Class 5A state final four.

They will be in action next on Wednesday.
