Florida State and Florida A&M Softball will face off Wednesday

TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (WTXL) — The Florida State softball team is a perfect 10-0 on the year and is coming off a stellar weekend where they topped five ranked teams in four days.

Florida A&M played several top programs to start its season, teams like Duke and Louisville. On Wednesday, the two Tallahassee programs meet, their first of two games scheduled this season.

For the two local teams, facing each other is a special match for the players, but also for the fans.

“I love that we have this community game,” Florida State head coach Lonni Alameda said. “I think tomorrow is our community day and we can honor the community in that way. FAM has always been a very competitive program, they go out and play everybody.”

“You have fans who are Florida State fans, but they love watching FAMU play, or you have FAMU fans who love watching Florida State play, so it’s great to bring all community,” added FAMU head coach Constance Orr. . “The girls love it because they talk all year round. Just going there and being able to meet them is very exciting for us.”

Wednesday’s game is scheduled for 6:00 a.m. at Florida State. They will face off again on March 1 at Florida A&M.
