Softball to take on the #1 team in the country

The JU softball team will travel to Gainesville Wednesday to face the newly top ranked Florida Gators.

The Gators were voted number one in the USA Today/NFCA poll released Tuesday after a dominating opening weekend performance in which they went 5-0 and outscored opponents 35-2.

The Dolphins (2-3) will be looking for a spark at the plate after scoring just three runs in their last three games of the JU Opening Weekend Tournament.  

The two teams met last year at the JU Softball Complex in a game that saw Florida score seven runs to Jacksonville’s zero.  The Gators lead the all-time series 9-0. 

The game is scheduled at 5:00 pm and live stats and video will be available on
