Saturday Finals:

G1 FAU 1, Michigan 0

It was scoreless until the sixth inning when Kiley Channell got things started for FAU by leading off with a single to right. Kamryn Jackson moved her over with a sacrifice bunt and Zoey Jones later delivered the eventual winning hit when she ripped a single to center that scored Channell.

Schlotterbeck did the rest, retiring the Wolverines in order in the seventh to slam the door on the Owls' seventh win. The graduate transfer from Maryland scattered five hits over her complete game in the circle to improve to 3-1 this season.

Florida Atlantic out-hit Michigan, 7-5, with Lauren Derkowski taking the tough-luck loss after pitching a complete game with eight strikeouts.

G2 FAU 10, Seton Hall 0

The Owls opened a 4-0 lead in the second inning and run-ruled the Pirates thanks to a six-run fifth inning. Gabby Sacco improved to 3-1 in the circle by scattering two hits over five innings with two strikeouts.

Leading 7-0 in the home half of the fifth inning, Becca Jones stepped to the plate with two on and ended the game in walk-off fashion by with her first home run this season that hugged the left-field foul pole.

Six of FAU's nine hits in the game came from the bottom of the order with Zoey Jones, Katelynn de Leon and Jesiana Mora each going 2-for-3.

Florida Atlantic has won four straight and seven of its last eight to improve to 8-3 overall. Michigan slipped to 6-3, while Seton Hall fell to 1-3.

The day began with Florida Atlantic officially dedicating the softball field as Joan Joyce Field during a pregame ceremony that included a number of Joyce's former players, and Joan's brother, Joey. Joyce, a member of 21 different athletics halls of fame, coached the Owls for 28 years, building the program from its inception and winning 1,002 games before her passing at the age of 81 in 2022.

The Owls (8-3) remain home next week, hosting the Owl Classic. The tournament begins Thursday, Feb. 22 as Florida Atlantic battles Boston College at 6 p.m.

Thursday Final: FAU 0, Boston College 2

Florida Atlantic softball (8-4) was held to two hits in a 2-0 loss to Boston College (7-4) on Thursday night.

Offensively, Cammeo Presutti recorded an infield single and Kamryn Jackson added a single of her own. The Owls were mounting a late game rally but saw their effort end on a web-gem play by BC leftfielder Zoe Hines.

The Owl Classic continues throughout the weekend. FAU will next play Rhode Island at 3 p.m. and FGCU at 5:30 on Friday. Columbia rounds out the tournament field and all games will be played on Joan Joyce Field.

Sunday Finals:

G1 FAU 7, Columbia 0

Florida Atlantic returned to the field on Sunday, hosting Columbia after defeating the Lions 9-0 on Saturday night. The Owls scored the only runs they would need in the bottom of the first inning. Presley Leebrick got the ball rolling with a double and moved to third on a ground out. Kamryn Jackson followed with a walk and a stolen base, setting the table for a two-out, two RBI double by Jesiana Mora, who was 12-for-17 on the weekend with six RBI and seven doubles.

While starting pitcher Gabby Sacco kept Columbia off the board, the Owls would add an unearned run in the fourth and tag on four more runs in the fifth on five hits, including a home run by Jackson, her third of the weekend.

Sacco, who allowed just one hit through five innings of work to pick up the win, gave way to Ainsley Lambert who tossed a scoreless sixth. Kelsey Endress completed the seven-inning combined shutout with a scoreless seventh and struck out two.

G2 FAU 1, Rhode Island 0

Game two saw Trinity Schlotterbeck toss the eight-inning shutout. Schlotterbeck scattered four RIU hits, struck out four and walked three in the win.

Playing under international tiebreaker rules, RIU started the eighth with a runner on second base. The Rams executed a perfect sacrifice bunt to move the runner to third, but Schlotterbeck then bookended a walk between two strikeouts to prevent the run from scoring.

The Owls began the bottom of the eighth with Jackson on second and the hot-hitting Mora at the plate. Mora stroked a game wining line drive to rightfield scoring Jackson from second for the 1-0 final.
