    Love the National attention! Out of the gate! Girls earned it! Keep it up!

    “The opening weekend of the 2019 NCAA softball season couldn't have gone better for No. 5 Florida. The Gators posted a 5-0 record, including wins over No. 6 Arizona and No. 14 Michigan. There were plenty of other teams that came out strong, but Florida's dominance against quality opponents merits a discussion here and now.

    Scoring 33 runs over the weekend is certainly one way to answer any lingering questions following an early exit from Oklahoma City to conclude last season. Four wins plus a save and 26 strikeouts over 19 innings from senior ace Kelly Barnhill is another.”

    Lugo looked just as good as Barnhill this weekend. Our worry was replacing Ocasio and it looks like we've just reloaded. Also our batting lineup is legit again. We faced some really good pitchers this weekend and put up runs despite Lorenz being in a funk.

    She had 6 hits the first 2 games and 1 hit in the final 3 games so that can skew the perception a little. Overall a good tournament at the plate for her by any objective measure.

    Will be a very interesting game tomorrow at the new KSP against Team Japan. I suspect Kelly will be dealing to prove she deserves to be on the USA national team.

    I can't believe Barnhill is a senior already!
