AUSTIN (KXAN) - The Texas softball team is going back to the Women's College World Series for the first time since 2006.
Blaire Luna threw her eighth career no-hitter and the no. 4 Longhorns beat Florida State 4-0. Texas won both of its super regional games with the Seminoles and has won all five of its post season games.
"It is my last game here officially at McCombs [Field] and I'm just really grateful that I ended it with this type of memory," Luna, the senior from Bowie High School in Austin said.
The Longhorns plated all four runs in the fourth inning. The star from Saturday night's game one win, Karina Scott hit a solo homerun to make it 1-0. Taylor Thom - a junior from Vista Ridge High school in Cedar Park - hit a two-run home run later in the inning to increase the lead to 4-0.
"For us to finally break through and make it to the World Series, it puts the cherry on top of a great season already and I just can't wait to get to Oklahoma City and make a run at the national championship," Thom said.
