Florida kicked things off on Friday with an 8-4 victory in which closer Michael Byrne set a new UF record for career saves (26). On Saturday, Florida used a seven-run seventh inning to cruise past the ‘Dores and clinch the series in a 10-2 win. The Gators wrapped things up on Sunday with an 8-2 triumph.

Gator softball earns four weekend wins: UF hosted Hampton and Jacksonville this weekend for a pair of games with each.

On Florida’s Friday scrimmage: I’d caution not ever getting too hung up on spring scrimmage stats for a myriad of reasons - but some to consider in this case include a new offense being installed after a handful of practices, it being the first scrimmage, and the weather not being ideal.
