It was her 15th home run of the season, but Mililani graduate Courtney Senas has never hit another round-tripper as important as the walk-off this afternoon that sent Florida State to the women’s college world series.

Like it was scripted for a movie, Senas connected on a 1-1 fastball in the bottom of the 7th of the Seminoles super regional championship game against Michigan, breaking a 2-2 tie with a two-run homer that sent chicken skin shock waves back to the 50th state. The 4-2 win will send FSU to the WCWS for the first time since 2004.

The two-time All-ACC first teamer was full of Aloha after celebrating at home plate, throwing shakas and sending shout-outs to her family and home state of Hawai’i at the end of ESPN’s broadcast.

Senas’ game two heroics came on the heels of another ball hit beyond the property line in game one. FSU was able to hold off Michigan to force the winner-take-all showdown with a 6-0 win.

Up next for the ‘Noles, will be a trip to Oklahoma City for the WCWS starting May 29th.
