Gainesville, FL- The two time national champions and five SEC regular season champions are on their way to another Women’s College World Series appearance. The University of Florida’s elite softball program has previously competed seven times for a national title.
Despite losing game one of the NCAA Super Regionals, Tim Walton’s Gators entered game two of the series against the Crimson Tide with the mindset that there was only one option, and that was to win. The Gators knew that a win was necessary in order to avoid a repeat of last season and missing out on the College World Series due to super regional play. Game two against Alabama was a shutout win for the Gators and Senior left handed pitcher Delanie Gourley. Amanda Lorenz hit a two run homer to seal the win. UF wrapped up the series with a 2-1 win in game three.
The Gator Girls are entering the Women’s College World Series with a sense of confidence and the hope of adding to their 2014 and 2015 national titles. They’ll face Texas A&M on Thursday at 12 pm. This will be the Gators eighth appearance in Oklahoma City.
