On the Gators’ finish at the Annika Intercollegiate:
“I’m really happy for the team. Today, every one of them showed tremendous fight and resilience. I’m not sure we had our best stuff this week but that okay. It’s all a part of the learning process, and I know each of them will take something away from this week. It was an outstanding field, and we got to see some really low numbers. Overall, I’m pleased with our progress.”
