Head Coach Ralph Weekly
On the game...
"(Monica) Abbott made one mistake. She hung a rise ball and (Melissa) Zick made her pay for it. Number one, give credit to the Gators. Number two, we didn't have anybody show up on offense but (Lindsay) Schutzler. Number three, that is what makes the SEC so good."
On regrouping for NCAA Regionals...
"We are still a very good team. We will do better next time. We just didn't hit the ball tonight, and you can't win many games if you don't hit the ball."
Head Coach Tim Walton
On the game ...
"It was a battle; such a great game to watch. When you face someone like Monica Abbott and Tennessee, you're going to have to be on top of your game as a pitcher to keep them off base. Stacey Nelson had good stuff today. She started off a little shaky, but she really came back and did a good job working both sides of the plate."
On Kim Waleszonia's diving catch in the sixth inning ...
"We've really been playing good defense all year. We've been doing that stuff all year. Kim Waleszonia, that just shows you what kind of player she is. She didn't hit the ball real well tonight, but she comes out there and does a great job of finding a way to get it done for us. I'm very proud of her."
P Stacey Nelson
On finding her groove midway through the game ...
"Every inning seeing the zeros up on the board gave me a little more confidence. I tried to get groundouts and pop-ups and let my defense work for me."
IF Melissa Zick
On her home run ...
"I think it was a 1-1 count. She hung it, I got a good swing on it and it went out."
