Noles News: FSU softball sweeps, Seminoles spring football game week

TALLAHASSEE — The second half of spring is upon us and with baseball dropping its first series of the season at Notre Dame, a legendary coach hitting the road, softball eliminating Virginia and a second spring scrimmage for football, the athletics of Florida State Seminoles department has been in the middle of the road when it comes to success ending the last days of March.


Head coach Mike Norvell and company held their second scrum of the spring on Saturday and after a practice Tuesday that seemed lackluster to Norvell, Thursday and Saturday turned out to be very different.


Four-star defensive lineman TJ Searcy paid a visit, four-star EDGE defenseman Joshua Mickens received an offer and three-star receiver prospect Goldie Lawrence decided he would take his talents to Tallahassee.

First-year guard Matthew Cleveland announced his intention to stay in Tallahassee via Twitter on Friday, claiming his spot on the roster for 2023:

Softball, meanwhile, got its own shot by beating Virginia on Sunday in Charlottesville, 7-2. Kalei Harding broke a two-run homer to give the Seminoles a lead that was ultimately insurmountable for the Cavaliers.
