SWEEPS APLENTY

Missouri, Florida AND Tennessee all swept through their competition over the weekend. Mizzou picked up a huge sweep over a ranked Auburn squad that will no doubt help them down the road. They’re still 6-11 in conference play, good for 11th place as of now, but they’re certainly in a good spot now as they’ve waded over .500 at 24-21 now.

Florida, meanwhile, maintained their dominance with a sweep over South Carolina. The Gamecocks were 8-4 going into the weekend but now are down to 8-7 and now reside in the middle of the pack. UF, meanwhile, remains at the top of the conference with a 12-3 record in league play. Georgia is still breathing down their neck, but this sweep was pivotal: Mostly because UGA played nonconference games over the weekend. So UF only helped their cause with the sweep of the Gamecocks to keep their standing at the summit.

Tennessee made a move with their 3-game sweep of LSU. The Volunteers now stand at 8-7 in conference play, as they’ve pushed themselves over the .500 mark. They’re tied with Arkansas and aforementioned South Carolina, but now have a chance to keep that hot streak going. With a 37-8 overall record, the Vols are no doubt one of the best teams in the nation. Now, we’ll see if they can burst through the middle of the pack after their weekend sweep of the Tigers.

TEXAS A&M TAKES TWO FROM KENTUCKY

The Texas A&M Aggies finessed their way into sole possession of 3rd place over the weekend. The Aggies defeated the Kentucky Wildcats two out of three times to improve to 9-6 in league play. The Ags routed the Wildcats 9-2 on Friday, and then followed that up with with a 4-3 victory on Saturday.

This was a big series in another way for A&M, as it was their last series at the Aggie Softball Complex. They will be moving into Davis Diamond later this month.

OLE MISS’ COX BECOMES ALL-TIME LEADING RUN SCORER

The celebrated career of Elantra Cox added a new wrinkle over the weekend. Cox became the program’s all-time leading run scorer, with 141 runs scored (and counting) in her illustrious career in Oxford. Ole Miss couldn’t stave off rival Mississippi State, as the Bulldogs took two of three from them over the weekend. But that certainly does not diminish the accomplishments of Elantra Cox. Hats off to her!
