Jenn Mossadeghi led the Gators going 2-for-3 with two doubles, a RBI and a run scored.

Florida used a three-run sixth inning to defeat No.9 Washington 3-2 to secure the No.1 seed in the UF Hotel and Conference Center Invitational Saturday afternoon at Florida Softball Stadium in front of 500 fans. Florida improves to 6-4. Florida pitcher Mandy Schuerman (1-2) earned her first win of the season, and Washington's Tia Bollinger (1-2) received the loss. Trailing 2-0 in the bottom of the sixth inning with two outs and no one on base, Florida began their rally. Mylin Prieto's single advanced pinch runner Jessie Franklin to second. Jennifer Mossadeghi then smashed a double down the left-field line to bring Franklin in for Florida's first run. The following at-bat, Prissie Walden brought in both Mossadeghi and Franklin on a single to center field.

Amanda Knowles replaced Schuerman in the top of the seventh and pitched a 1-2-3 inning, striking out two. Knowles struck out Jamie Clark swinging to end the game.

Washington (13-2) scored both of their runs in the fourth inning off Florida starting pitcher Amanda Moore. Kathy Fiske's single to center field brought in both runs.

Mossadeghi finished 2-for-3 for the Gators with two doubles, a RBI and a run. Prieto was 2-for-2 with a run.
