Gators Athletic Teams Post a Perfect Sunday

Even though many of us are still grieving over the basketball loss Saturday, the rest of the Florida athletic department moved on with its spring schedule. The Gators softball team put the finishing touches on a three game sweep of Arkansas this weekend in Fayetteville with a 5-0 Sunday shutout (the Gators downed the Razorbacks 6-0 on Friday and 3-2 on Saturday). Hannah Rogers picked up the Sunday win for the visiting Gators with five scoreless innings of relief to run her record to 16-1 on the season.

Center fielder Michelle Moultrie went 2 for 3 with a homer and scored three times for Florida (Moultrie was 8 for 11 on the weekend for a .727 batting average). This was the fifth straight sweep of the Razorbacks by the orange and blue. Following a Wednesday night game at home against USF, the Gators will travel to Athens next weekend for a three game tilt against the No, 11 ranked Georgia Bulldogs.

Meanwhile the No. 2 women's tennis team continued to roll with a 6-1 victory over the No. 19 Ole Miss Rebels Sunday in Gainesville. The win was the 103rd consecutive home victory for the Gators and their 31st straight regular season SEC win. The Gators swept the doubles matches and won all but the No. 5 singles match, where Sofie Oyen fell to the Rebels' Abby Guthrie 7-5, 7-5. It was Oyen's first loss in fourteen singles matches. Florida next heads to the state of Alabama to face Auburn on Friday and Alabama on Sunday.

Finally, the No. 11 men's tennis team also earned a win Sunday by a score of 5-2 over No. 14 Ole Miss in Oxford. The win snapped a three-match losing streak for the Gators. Florida will also face Auburn and Alabama next weekend, but the men's team will host both matches at Linder Stadium at the Ring Tennis Complex in Gainesville.
