The Florida Gators softball season will be remembered as a success, but one that came up just short of a fairy tale ending.
Florida was run-ruled, 8-0 in six innings by UCLA in the Women’s College World Series on Sunday.
The Gators were held to just two hits and the Bruins used a three-run fourth inning and a four-run sixth inning to send Florida home early.
Charla Echols and Cheyenne Lindsey collected the only Florida hits.
Former Oakleaf star Katie Kistler turned in one of the best defensive plays of the series when she robbed the Bruins of a home run in the bottom of the third inning. Kistler finished the season with a .358 batting average, the fourth highest on the team.
The Gators finished the season with a record of 49-18.
