Junior pitcher AnnaMarie Gatti was Syracuse's Friday starter in her sophomore year, posting a 3.38 ERA.

Syracuse announced its 2017 schedule on Thursday afternoon. The Orange finished 27-26 last season, its first winning campaign since 2012. Its 2017 slate features a pair of home stands against Florida State, the reigning Atlantic Coast Conference champions, and Louisville, last year’s No. 2 ACC team.

Last March, Syracuse won its first game against a nationally ranked team in more than two years when it beat No. 19 Notre Dame. The Orange returns its top two hitters, junior shortstop Sammy Fernandez (.324 average) and senior outfielder Alyssa Dewes (.305). It also brings back its top two pitchers, senior lefthander Sydney O’Hara (1.89 ERA) and junior righty AnnaMarie Gatti (3.38).

In August, head coach Mike Bosch signed a multi-year contract extension. Terms of the deal were not revealed. Bosch, who enters his second season, spent three years with the team as an assistant coach from 2013-15.

Below is the full 2017 schedule for the SU softball team.
