On Sunday, the Florida Gators swept a double-header against NC State and South Florida to cap a perfect opening weekend of the 2019 season.

On Monday, the Southeastern Conference named Gators senior pitcher Kelly Barnhill the conference Pitcher of the Week.

Barnhill finished the weekend 4-0 and recoded a save after getting work in each game of the tournament.

In 19 innings, Barnhill struck out 26 batters and gave up only six hit and two runs (both earned). Her ERA sits at 0.74 for the season.

For the Marietta, GA native, this is her tenth time earning SEC Pitcher of the Week honors.

The Gators will face Team Japan in an exhibition on Tuesday to open the newly renovated Katie Seashole Pressly Stadium. Florida will then continue the regular season with a contest against North Florida on Wednesday before traveling to Arizona to take part in the Littlewood Classic.
