Florida State was up 1-0 against Washington in the seventh inning of the Women’s College World Series National Championship on Monday night, poised to secure the Game 1 win.

Though with no outs and one runner on first base, the Huskies were in a position to force extra innings — or even steal the opening game of the three-game series away in the final inning.

Then, third baseman Jessie Warren happened.


Washington’s Trysten Melhart went to lay down a sacrifice bunt to advance the runner into scoring position. As Melhart hit the ball, Warren came flying in from her position at third base to make an incredible diving catch. Then almost instantly, she jumped up and threw the runner out at first base, completing the double play.

It was a perfect double play — one likely worthy of the top play of the day — and sealed the 1-0 Game 1 win for the Seminoles.

The Seminoles will have a chance to win the National Championship on Tuesday night in Game 2 of the series at 8 p.m. ET in Oklahoma City.
