The Terps' six runs in Sunday's win was the most the Seminoles had given up all season.

Senior Alex Schultz leads the Terps at the plate with her .406 average on the year. Her RBI triple Sunday against Florida State put her in the top five of the Maryland record books in career triples. She has six in her career.

Junior Kerry Hickey moved into the top five on the Maryland career strikeout list with 361. Kendra Knight comes in at No. 9 with 243.
