Florida junior infielder Hannah Adams was named to the Preseason All-SEC Softball Team, the league announced Wednesday.

Adams was selected to the SEC All-Tournament Team after she notched a .308 batting average and produced three RBI and three runs scored en route to the Gators fifth overall tournament title in 2019. Adams scored the game-tying run in the comeback victory against South Carolina and put the Gators up early with a two-run home run in the 1st inning against Auburn in the semifinal game.

The hot streak at the plate continued into NCAA postseason play as the Hoschton, Ga. native hit .346 and was tied for the team lead with nine hits, which included three doubles.

Florida is set to begin its’ 2020 campaign at the USF-Rawlings Invitational in Tampa against Illinois State (Feb. 7) at 6:45 p.m. with the first SEC series slated against Auburn (March 6-8).

The first home contest in the recently renovated Katie Seashole Pressly Stadium is an exhibition set for Tuesday, Feb. 11, at 6 p.m. against Team USA. Former Gators Michelle Moultrie, Aubree Munro and Kelsey Stewart will return with the Red, White and Blue to take on the Gators as they prepare for their quest to win Olympic gold at the 2020 Tokyo Games.
