Gators Take Over Twitter For Florida Softball Win In WCWS Title Series

The Florida Gators softball team finally shook the Women’s College World Series championship monkey of its back on Monday night. In the first of a 3-game series against Alabama, Florida recorded an impressive 5-0 win, marking the first time UF has won a game in the finals.

Hannah Rogers pitched an absolute gem of a game, her teammates provided nearly perfect backup in the field, and the Florida bats were locked in on Tide pitcher Jackie Traina.

As the girls took care of business on the field, Gator Nation took over Twitter. Fans, players and coaches repped the Orange and Blue so loudly that #Gators began trending during the game.
