A special report from the UAA on the Florida Gators softball team:
TUSCALOOSA, Ala. – No. 5 Florida downed No. 3 Alabama, 2-0, to open the series Friday evening at Rhoads Stadium. Elizabeth Hightower (14-2) pitched a complete-game shutout, while Sarah Longley (1-for-3) provided a clutch two-RBI single to seal the victory.
Hightower’s gem of a performance in the circle for the Gators (31-5, 11-2 SEC) was her fourth complete-game shutout in Southeastern Conference action this season. Tonight was also only the third time that the Crimson Tide (32-6, 11-5 SEC) has been shut out all season.
