 Florida Head Coach Tim Walton

 

Opening Statement:

“Just a good W. I thought Hannah (Rogers) came out and really established the zone for us. W’s in postseason are hard to get and we had a chance to get everybody in the game too, I think that’s pretty special. Every one of our offensive players reached base so that’s pretty unique, but also special as a coach because it’s really hard to do that. It’s hard to get everybody a chance and opportunity to play especially in this type of game. Again, I thought it was a good game yesterday for Stetson to get here to this point. Whoever wins this next game and gets to that next round is going to make a good ballgame tonight too. We’re excited to be here in the winner’s bracket and control our own destiny. I think that’s the biggest key here going into championship Sunday.”

 

On how much he can read into winning two games like they did:

“Well, if we play Stetson tomorrow then I think we can read a little bit into it, but if we play UCF I don’t think you can put any stock into it all since it will be a new opponent. But, in two days we’ve hit three homeruns and how many singles have we had? How many balls have we had go the other way? How many 2-out, 2-strike hits have we gotten? Those are the most important parts. It’s what wins you games in this time of the year.”

 

Senior Hannah Rogers

 

On pitching with a cushion:

“Our team has just been bringing a lot of energy. You can just tell right from the beginning of the game. Since postseason everybody has just been wanting to play and be out there and just having good at bats.”

“It’s always fun to go out there and just pitch for my teammates and not give up any runs just makes them want to go out there and score more runs.”

 

Sophomore Kelsey Stewart

 

On putting stock into back-to-back wins:

“I think you don’t put too much stock into that, knowing you can get a hit against both teams is nice but I think it’s a new game, they have seen us now so they’re going to throw different pitches. I think you just have to re-focus now and get ready for the next game.”

 

On her triple:

“My job is to get a base hit and score somebody. I wasn’t trying to get a triple but it just happened that she threw me an inside pitch if Aubree (Munro) was going, I was going. So the whole time I was just watching Aubree to see if coach was sending her.”

 

 

Stetson Head Coach Frank Griffin

 

Opening Statement:

“UF has a pretty good ball team. I see why they’re ranked fifth and sixth in the nation. I see why they were ranked No. 1 in the nation. They have a good, quality ball team. As far as my team, we’re 5-1 in postseason play and I’m pretty happy about that.”

 

On the miscues on defense:

“We had some issues. I think it was a combination of nerves, sun issues and I think they got rattled. They haven’t had runs scored on them like that this season, not even close. I think they were a little rattled and we just need to put it behind us.”
