KNOXVILLE, Tenn. — Michelle Moultrie's solo home run to straight-away center in the third inning would be the only run the UF softball team would need to top Tennessee 1-0.

The Lady Vols (15-5, 1-2 SEC) out-hit the Gators (23-2, 4-1 SEC), 6-4, but the only hit that mattered was Moultrie's sixth round-tripper of the year, which gave Florida a 1-0 lead it wouldn't relinquish.

Lauren Haeger (7-1) got the win for the Gators in relief of starter Alyssa Bache. Haeger held Tennessee to two hits in 3.2 innings of work.

Men's Golf: At Las Vegas, Nev., UF finished up play at the SH Collegiate Masters in a tie for ninth place.

For the tournament, the Gators were led by former Oak Hall star J.D. Tomlinson who earned his second consecutive top-10 slot with an eighth-place finish after a three-round score of four-over 218.

Tomlinson was one of three players who led the Gators on the day with a 76. After a double on 11 and a bogey on 13, the freshman finished out his round with a birdie on the 18th to close out his day.

Men's Tennis: At Lexington, Ky., ninth-ranked UF dropped a 4-3 decision on the road to No. 7 Kentucky.

Nassim Slilam and Billy Federhofer both had singles wins for the Gators (9-5, 2-2 SEC).

Tripper Carleton and Michael Alford teamed up for a No. 3 doubles victory. The Wildcats improved to (15-3, 4-0 SEC).
