    Amanda Lorenz, the number one rated player nationally for 2015 class and Gator commit made the right choice for her college career. Her team just won the PGF 18U National Championship in a big time tournament of the best travel teams. In the 7 game tournament she batted .478 for the series and was 2 for 3 with an RBI double in the championship game. In her high school junior season she batted .642 with 8 home runs and 22 doubles.
    Can't wait for her to get to Gainesville.

    Hopefully Kelly Barnhill will decide to join Lorenz as a Forida Gator.

    I've never even heard of PGF? Is that the same as ASA/NSA etc.?

    Regardless, awesome! Walton tearing it up as usual.

    Article on Student Sports said Kelly Barnhill had a game in this tournament where she struck out all fifteen batters that she faced. Hope this young lady decides to become a Gator!

    Just did a quick search in barnhill and her twitter was there,
    Tweets about uf when we won the NC, from games last year etc but nothing on Stanford. Definitely seems she is a fan but I can understand the pull of Stanford regardless of who you grew up rooting for.

    Barnhill has a great academic record so certainly can see the draw to Stanford. Early this summer in an interview she mentioned how thankful she was that Stanford and Florida were not pressing her to decide. Little different than Lorenz who committed to UF as a FR.
