Gainesville Regional • May 16, 2014 • Day 1 Quotes

Stetson 6, UCF 4 (8 innings)

Stetson Head Coach Frank Griffin

 

On the win today:

“In the first six innings we had several opportunities to score and we just kept leaving runners in scoring position. It was very frustrating. In the end when it had to be done, they got the job done.”

 

Demi Meza, Junior Infielder

 

On the effort in the comeback:

“We always come back. It was so great and everyone was so happy to finally score because we kept leaving runners on base. To win, you have to score. So that’s what we did.”

 

Jessica Griffin, Sophomore Catcher/Utility

 

On tying the game:

“That first pitch came in and I let it go. Coach Griffin looked at me and gave me the hit and run. He knew that as long as he told me to swing the bat that I was going to do it. I came through and I’m so excited; I’m so glad I could come through for the team.”

 

Meredith Owen, Senior Pitcher/Infielder

 

On the team’s comeback:

“It was awesome. Obviously, I didn’t have my stuff on the mound and they just had my back throughout the entire game. That’s just such an awesome feeling to know my team has my back no matter what and they’re never going to give up on me.”

 

 

UCF Head coach Renee Luers-Gillispie

On the game:

“I felt, offensively, we were doing the little things right. We were getting the runners on. Kahley (Novak) did a great job at leadoff getting on and being able to move over to second base. Did the little things right offensively but pitching wasn’t on today. We had several walks in the game and you just can’t win ballgames that way. Stetson did a great job with their hitters, really battling at the plate and did what they needed to do to win the game.” 

Kahley Novak, UCF Junior SS/2B

 

On the Knights ability to bounce back from today’s loss:

“I think we need to let it go. It’s already over. We need to let that go and come out stronger tomorrow.”
