Syracuse softball earns berth in ACC Championships

The Orange needed a final weekend sweep and got it done

Michael Ostrowski

The Syracuse Orange softball team had struggled throughout the ACC schedule. Heading into the final weekend, Syracuse needed to sweep the North Carolina Tar Heels to keep their season alive. The Orange did just that winning 3-1 on Friday, 6-1 on Saturday and closing the series out with a dominant 9-1 win on Sunday. This gave Syracuse a record of 24-20 on the season, 7-15 in ACC play.

Syracuse earned the #9 seed and will play #8 Louisville on Wednesday in Pittsburgh at 1 pm on the ACC Network. The Orange dropped all three games to the Cardinals in the regular season and were out-scored 15-3. Anything can happen now that its single-elimination and Syracuse will hope to ride this weekend’s momentum into Wednesday’s game. The winner of the opener will advance to face the #1 seed Virginia Tech Hokies.
