200 Ks: Chelsea Wilkinson became just the fourth player to record 200 strikeouts in a season. She is also just the second to reach the mark in her sophomore season. The last time that Georgia had a 200-strikeout pitcher was in 2012 when Erin Arevalo recorded 270 strikeouts. That year the Bulldogs made it to the Super Regional round of the NCAA Tournament.

WILSON AT THE PLATE: Paige Wilson has been swinging a hot bat as of late. She went 7-fo-14 with two home runs and triple over four games last weekend. She has saved her best for SEC teams, as she leads the Bulldogs with a .426 batting average that includes a double, a triple and five home runs. In SEC play, she owns an on-base percentage of .463.
