Florida softball falls in extra innings at Florida State: The top-ranked Gators dropped last night’s game to the second-ranked Seminoles, in what turned out to be the second longest game ever between the two programs (10.1 innings).

In the loss, Barnhill set a Florida single game strikeout record (21) and pitched her longest game (10.1 innings). (Herb Brooks, Florida Gators; Pat Dooley, Gainesville Sun)
