TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (March 7, 2006) – Florida State University swept a softball doubleheader from the University of Connecticut on Tuesday by scores of 8-2 and 1-0. UConn’s record drops to 2-5 on the season while Florida State improves to 13-8.

In the second game, Florida State pitcher Kayla Collins pitched a complete-game four-hitter as the Seminoles scored the game’s only run in the bottom of the first inning. Natasha Jacob led off the FSU first with a homerun.

UConn sophomore Allie Gendron (Amherst, Mass.) had a pair of doubles in that contest – in the fourth with two outs and in the sixth with one out – but the Huskies could not advance her.

Husky junior Krista Michalczyk (Salem, N.H.) went the distance in the loss to drop to 1-2 on the season. She scattered four hits as she struck out three and walked three.

In the opener, Florida State’s Jacob again led off the FSU first with a homer. The Seminoles then exploded for three runs in the third inning to take a commanding 4-0 lead. Jacob led that inning off with a triple and then advanced home on an error.

UConn senior Michelle Caouette (Wyantskill, N.Y.) took the loss for the Huskies as she pitched two innings and gave up four runs on six hits. Sophomore Ashley Thody (Middletown, Conn.) was on the hill for the other four innings of work for UConn. She scattered nine hits while giving up six runs while striking out one.

The Huskies scored their only two runs of the doubleheader in the fourth inning on an RBI double by freshman Jillian Ortega (Aberdeen, N.J.), who later scored on an RBI single by senior Kim Castner (Forked River, N.J.).

UConn returns to action on Wednesday when the Huskies visit Florida A&M for a 3:00 p.m. game.
