Georgia softball moves to 9-0, picks up third win over ranked opponent

The Georgia Bulldogs softball team is now 9-0. Georgia, who opened the season as the No. 6 team in the country in the USA TODAY/NFCA preseason softball poll, has picked up three straight wins over ranked opponents.

Head coach Tony Baldwin and Georgia avenged their Super Regional round defeat in the NCAA Tournament to Florida State last year. Georgia defeated the No. 5 Seminoles 20-10. Sara Mosley had seven RBIs in Georgia’s impressive win over Florida State, who played in the national championship game last season. Georgia’s 20 runs is the most in program history.

The Bulldogs additionally picked up wins over No. 20 UCLA and No. 8 Oklahoma State at the Clearwater Invitational. Georgia needed extra innings to defeat Wisconsin on Feb. 15.

Georgia’s Feb. 17 game against Minnesota has been cancelled due to weather. The Bulldogs’ next game is on Feb. 23 against Virginia Tech as Georgia hosts the Georgia Classic.

Georgia softball should ascend up the national softball rankings after its impressive showing at the Clearwater Invitational.
