The Terps (1-8) entered the game winless on the season, knocking off the previously unbeaten Gators (8-1), who were tabbed as the No. 1 team in the country in both the ESPN/USA Softball and USA Today Coaches Poll.

“This was an incredible team win,” Maryland coach Julie Wright. “Florida is a very good program with a great history and talented coaching staff. To put together the game we did against them means a lot. We did the little things well and just played Maryland softball.”

Maryland had to come from behind to get the upset win, as the defending SEC Champions got a pair across in the first inning.
