Happy hump day, Florida State fans.
As that long weekend draws closer, see what’s in The Daily Sauce.
Florida State women’s golf fought until the bitter end on Tuesday, but ultimately fell to Texas A&M in a heartbreaking national quarterfinal, 3-2.
With the match tied 2-2, it took 19 holes to decide a winner between FSU’s Beatrice Wallin and Texas A&M’s Adela Cernousek. Cernousek’s putt ultimately ended the contest. The Aggies moved on to face Oregon while FSU’s season came to an end.
Elle Johnson and Charlotte Heath ultimately won their matchups for the Seminoles. Johnson topped Hailee Cooper, 3&2. Heath defeated Texas A&M’s Amber Park, 2&1.
The quarterfinal trip for FSU is its deepest NCAA Tournament run in program history. The Seminoles will have to replace Wallin, but are set to return a strong core in 2023.
