Romanello, whose lifelong dream was to play at UF (according to a Tampa Bay Times article in 2018), never became a mainstay in the Florida lineup despite inconsistent play from her teammates.
As a freshman in 2018, Romanello appeared in 34 games and was even named the SEC Freshman of the Week in April after leading Florida to a win over Alabama.
In 2019, the sophomore appeared in 45 games and hit .186 to go along with a .304 on-base percentage.
The St. Petersburg native slugged four homers and drove in 10 RBI in her second season donning the Orange and Blue.
Florida’s official website doesn’t list Romanello on the team’s roster.
The Gators open the season at the USF – Rawlings Invitational on February 7 against Iowa State.
