Weekend Review: Florida Baseball to College World Series, Outdoor Track Falters

Your Monday morning recap of the weekend in Florida Gators news. 300 words or less, perfect for browsing before heading to the water cooler. Or Twitter.

Florida baseball will head back to Omaha: The Florida baseball team earned a return trip to the College World Series in Omaha by defeating Mississippi State in NCAA Super Regional play over the weekend. Florida needed all three games to put down the feisty Bulldogs, and needed a towering Preston Tucker homer to rally back in Sunday's dramatic Game Three. The Gators move on to the College World Series for the seventh time in program history, and will be making back-to-back CWS appearances for the first time. Florida will meet Texas when College World Series play opens later this week; you can find College World Series ticket information at Gatorzone. We'll have previews of all of the CWS teams as the week progresses.

Fleetest Gators falter: The Florida men's track team had a chance to follow up its indoor national championship with a triumph at the NCAA Outdoor Championships, but faltered on Saturday, coming in third to Texas A&M and Florida State. A DNF in the 4 x 100 meter relay kneecapped the Gators early, and Florida's attempt to claim a national championship in the 4 x 400 meter relay at day's end fell short with a sixth-place finish.

Corey Brewer, NBA champion: The Dallas Mavericks' Game 6 win over the Miami Heat in the NBA Finals means Florida swingman Corey Brewer is now an NCAA and NBA champion. Feel free to congratulate him on Twitter.
