Gainesville, FL – The Santa Fe College Saints (29-18, 12-10 MFC) dropped the first game of a double header at St. John’s River State College 3-0 but rebounded to pull out a 4-2 victory over the Vikings in the night cap, and in the process clinched a spot at the FCSAA Tournament, set to take place April 28-30 in Vero Beach.

St. John’s had SF’s number in the first game, holding the Saints scoreless, a task that has been difficult for opponents this season.

Game two was a better result for the Santa Fe College Saints. Kaylan Tucker went the distance in the circle, allowing just a single run in the first and another in the seventh.  She struck out three and scattered five hits. Evelyn Arguelles, Cassandra Garcia, Adrix Paradizo-Ramos, and Kaylan Tucker had two hits each. Arguelles and Garcia each drove in a run.

With the FCSAA Tournament berth set, the Saints will now turn their attention to improving their seeding. Two wins against Lake Sumter Thursday, April 13, could potentially put SF in play for the #3 seed. They are currently the #4 seed in the Mid-Florida Conference.  The first game of the double header is scheduled for 2:30 p.m.
