“Sorry, boss, last night was the longest Women’s College World Series softball game in history with 17 innings and as a queer woman AND an alum I’m doubly contractually obligated to watch it. Sorry, I don’t make the rules I just follow them.”
May 31, 2015 - For the fourth time in the last seven seasons, the Florida Gators softball team advanced to the Women’s College World Series Championship, earning a 3-2 extra-innings victory over the Auburn Tigers.
Congratulations to the Gator Softball team for winning the 2014 Women’s College World Series. Led by head coach Tim Walton, ace pitcher Hannah Rogers, and great defensive play all year long, the girls swept the Alabama Crimson Tide with scores of 5-0 and 6-3. This is the first national championship in the seventeen-year program history.
Softball pitcher Taryne Mowatt won the 2007 Women’s College Softball World Series with the Arizona Wildcats. Mowatt was named Most Outstanding Player of the tournament. She would go on to win the ESPYs for Best Female Athlete and Best Female College Athlete.
