Florida coaches hit the recruiting trail: Assistant coaches hit the road starting yesterday for the first time this spring during the evaluation period. The Gators were in Jacksonville, Orlando, and at IMG Academy in Bradenton — after a group of IMG players toured Florida late last week — yesterday. Coaches are expected to be in Orlando, St. Petersburg, and the Fort Myers area today. Florida's coaches will continue traveling around the state throughout the week. (Andrew Spivey, Gator Country; Graham Hall, Gainesville Sun; Zach Abolverdi, SEC Country)
Florida softball players Delanie Gourley and Amanda Lorenz honored by SEC: Gourley was named SEC Pitcher of the Week after throwing her third career no-hitter in the series opener against Mississippi State, where she notched four strikeouts and allowed just three walks in five innings. Gourley tossed 12 scoreless innings and allowed just two hits against the Bulldogs this weekend. Lorenz was named SEC Freshman of the Week. She had a pair of game-winning home runs last week, with one coming in walk-off fashion. (Will Pantages, Florida Gators)
Gators' outfielder Amanda Lorenz impressing: The freshman has four home runs in the month of April and has started every game for the Gators. She ranks second on the team in batting average and RBI. (Robbie Andreu, Gainesville Sun; Chris Harry, Florida Gators)
Florida baseball back at No. 1: The Gators reclaimed the top spot in the polls yesterday. Previous No. 1 Miami dropped two of three over the weekend to Virginia. (Scott Carter, Florida Gators)
Gators' pitcher Logan Shore named SEC Co-Pitcher of the Week: Shore threw a two-hit, complete game shutout on Friday night against Georgia. He set a new Florida school record by claiming his 13th straight victory, breaking a mark that had stood since 1984. Shore faced the minimum of 27 batters and did not allow any Georgia runners past first base. (John Hines, Florida Gators)
Devin Robinson has surgery, will be out 4-6 months: You may recall that Robinson declared for the NBA draft several weeks ago. But, he did not sign with an agent and so left open the possibility to return to the Gators. Robinson underwent left foot surgery to repair a stress fracture and will be sidelined at least four months. (Edgar Thompson, Orlando Sentinel; Tampa Bay Times)
