The No. 4 seeded North Carolina softball team took down Georgia Tech 6-2 to advance to the ACC tournament semifinal, before being knocked out by No.1 seed and host team Florida State on Friday.
The loss to FSU brought the Tar Heels to a record of 39-19 on the season — a good enough record to advance to the NCAA Tournament.
Tonight, North Carolina will face Wisconsin in Eugene, Ore., in the first round of regional play.
In last weekend’s ACC Tournament effort, seniors Haleigh Dickey and Constance Orr were both named to the 2013 ACC Softball All-Tournament team. Dickey tied the ACC Tournament record of two homeruns in a single game, propelling the Tar Heels to a victory.
Dickey also contributed two runs and two RBIs on the weekend. Orr batted a .600 average and tallied three hits with an on-base percentage of .667.
