Softball Advances to SEC Semifinals

The 19th-ranked Gator softball team defeated Mississippi State 3-0 in the first round of the SEC tournament quarterfinals Thursday afternoon.

The win was the first for Florida in the conference tournament since 2003. With the victory, the Gators (45-19) advance to the tournament semifinals, and will play either Tennessee or Mississippi at 8:30 Friday night.

Senior Melissa Zick extended her hit streak to 15 games with a base hit through the left side to score Waleszonia and give the Gators the 1-0 lead.
