Wait ‘Til Next Year

Gators Softball was eliminated Sunday night from the Women’s College World Series, a run short of the Finals. The 1-0 loss to Texas A&M was in nine innings, the Gators third extra inning game of the tournament. It is hard to pick out one reason why a team loses, but it seemed as if UF had run out of gas. After losing to Louisiana-Lafayette to start the tournament, the Gators had to play back-to-back doubleheaders and go 4-0 to advance. The fatigue showed when the Gators could not score in the 6th inning of game two against A&M, despite bases loaded with one out.

 

Florida won 70 games this season; an impressive number like the Patriots’ 18-1 is an impressive number. But where the Patriots were stacked with old men and cheaters, UF has only one senior and will have all the necessary pieces returning. Just as they had done this season, a deep run in the tournament is possible. A long hot summer and cold autumn sit between UF’s last and next at-bats. All they can do is wait ‘til next year.
