Mandarin HS Grad Leads UF Into Womens College World Series Finals

University of Florida center fielder Michelle Moultrie is a huge reason why the Gators are playing in the finals of the Womens College World Series.

The Mandarin High School graduate is batting .611 (11 for 18) during the Womens College World Series.  She also has hit 3 home runs during the WCWS despite only hitting 2 during the entire regular season.

Florida will play Arizona State in a best of three series beginning on Monday night at 8:00 p.m.  The winner of the series will win the national championship.

This is the second time in the last three years that the Lady Gators have advanced to the finals of the Womens College World Series.  They lost to Washington in 2009 when Moultrie was a freshman.

On Monday afternoon, First Coast News spoke with Michelle's former high school softball coach at Mandarin, Natalia Gonzalez.  To hear her comments about her former pupil's success, be sure to watch the video clip attached to this story.
