FSU routs Tulane 16-7 to advance to the super regionals

TALLAHASSEE — After avoiding elimination in three straight games, Florida State routs Tulane 16-7 to advance to the College World Series super regionals.

The Seminoles will face Wichita State in the next round, which starts Friday.

On the brink of elimination, Florida State recorded a season-high 25 hits on Saturday night against Florida for a 17-11 win. The Seminoles then shut down Bucknell in a 24-6 win on Sunday afternoon and beat Tulane 17-8 later that night to force Monday night's decisive game.

FRESNO ST. 5, SAN DIEGO 1: Gavin Hedstrom had three hits to help the Western Athletic Conference champions win the Long Beach regional. Fresno State will play Arizona Sate in the first super regional in school history.

STANFORD 9, PEPPERDINE 7: Sean Ratliff hit a pair of home runs, including a go-ahead grand slam, as Stanford overcame an early four-run deficit to win the Stanford regional in California.

GEORGIA 18, GA. TECH 6: Matt Olson went 5-for-6 with three RBIs and Rich Poythress hit a two-run homer to help host Georgia win its regional.

TEXAS A&M 13, HOUSTON 5: Kyle Colligan hit two home runs to lead host Texas A&M to the regional title.

TEXAS TECH: Larry Hays, one of four Division I coaches with more than 1,500 wins, resigned, clearing the way for a successor named in April. The school said it was still finalizing the details of the contract for former Tech player Dan Spencer, who will take over the program.

SOFTBALL: Freshman Krista Donnenwirth homered and had two RBI singles, and Katie Burkhart threw a two-hitter to lead Arizona State past Texas A&M 3-0 in Game 1 of the Women's College World Series finals in Oklahoma City.

USF AD Woolard draws interest from Wash.

TAMPA — Doug Woolard, coming up on four years as USF's athletic director, has been contacted by the University of Washington as the Huskies search for their next athletic director.

It's unknown whether Woolard, 58, is interested in the Huskies' job, which has been open since Todd Turner resigned in December. Woolard did not return calls from the Times seeking comment.

Washington men's basketball coach Lorenzo Romar, who is on the university's search committee, was hired by Woolard as coach at Saint Louis when Woolard was athletic director there in 1999.

Woolard makes $421,950 this year at USF but would likely draw a higher salary with the Huskies and would preside over a larger athletic budget. Washington is in the middle of a push for a $300-million stadium renovation and could be hiring a football coach after this season, as coach Ty Willingham is 11-25 in three seasons.

UF BASKETBALL: Clemson's Shaka Smart, a well-regarded recruiter, will join the staff as an assistant coach, the school said. Smart, 31, replaces Lewis Preston, who left last week for a similar job at Penn State.

Times staff writer Greg Auman contributed to this report.
