Crimson Tide Athletics:

The Crimson Tide used a combination of seven arms in the 4-0 shutout win over Middle Tennessee on Tuesday afternoon at Sewell-Thomas Stadium. 

The victory improves Alabama to 4-0 on the young season, its best start since 2013.

"It doesn't get much better than a 4-0 shutout, and it was awesome to see these guys compete out there," said Alabama head coach Brad Bohannon. 

"We pitched seven guys, and they all did a great job. I was a little extra excited for Garret (Rukes) and Brock (Love) because these two deserve to be successful. Out of all the players I've seen with injuries in my career, these two have been so diligent in their work ethic to follow their rehab plans, and it was exciting to see them get out there and get their season off to a good start."

Next up for Alabama is a three-game weekend series with Washington State. 

The Crimson Tide and Cougars are scheduled for a 3 p.m. CT first pitch on Friday followed by a 1 p.m. start on Saturday. 

The series finale is slated for 9 a.m. on getaway day. All three games can be seen live on SEC Network+.

RIO GRANDE, Puerto Rico;

Senior Lee Hodges secured medalist honors at the 2018 Puerto Rico Classic on Tuesday, finishing the three-day, 72-hole event with a 7-under par 206. 

As a team, the top-ranked Alabama Crimson Tide improved to fifth overall in the 15-team field, closing play with a team score of 14-over par 866 (286-292-288).

"We did some good things as a team but we played in some tough conditions out here this week," Alabama head coach Jay Seawell said. 

"We weren't quite ready for it and that's on me as a coach. We can blame the weather, the wind and rain, and the adversity we've gone through, but that's what this tournament is about. It's to come down here and give us an indicator and we will be more prepared when we play our next tournament. We look forward to getting back to work on Thursday and becoming the great team I think we can be."

"I am really proud of Lee," Seawell said. "I thought he did an extraordinary job in preparation. You could see today happening almost three weeks ago by the way he practiced. I think the fruits of his labor was seen throughout this week."

Alabama will return to action on March 5-7 when it competes at the Southern Highlands Masters in Las Vegas, Nev.

Crimson Tide Athletics:

Hattiesburg, Miss.;

Alabama softball remains undefeated on the young season, earning two convincing wins Saturday at the Black and Gold Invitational against McNeese, 11-1, and Mississippi Valley State, 11-0.

Alabama (6-0) scored 11 runs in each game, holding McNeese (5-3) to just one run while blanking Mississippi Valley State (0-6), the Crimson Tide's fourth shutout of the season.

Freshman Kaylee Tow had a stellar day at the plate, going a combined 3-5 between the two games with a three-run home run against the Cowgirls and an RBI triple against the Devilettes. 

Tow's home run was one of four on the day for Alabama, with additional long balls coming from junior Reagan Dykes, senior Peyton Grantham and sophomore Claire Jenkins.

Junior Courtney Gettins (2-0) earned her second win of the season with a 5.0-inning effort against McNeese, allowing just one run on three hits and freshman Madison Preston (2-0) nearly threw a no-hitter against MVSU, allowing two late hits in the fifth inning but otherwise holding the Devilettes scoreless.

After two hitless innings at the plate, Alabama led off the bottom of the third with three-straight hits to quickly load the bases.

A pair of walks and a bunt single quickly loaded the bases for Alabama in the bottom of the first and another walk to junior Caroline Hardy moved everyone up 60 feet to plate the Tide's first run of the day.

Crimson Tide Athletics:

With runners on first and second and two down, junior Joe Breaux lined a single to right field to plate the winning run and walk it off, 6-5, for Alabama baseball against Valparaiso on Saturday afternoon at Sewell-Thomas Stadium. 

With the win, the Crimson Tide clinches the series and improves to 2-0 overall on the young season.

"It was a big game for us," said Alabama head coach Brad Bohannon. 

"I was really pleased with the way that our kids competed. I thought when we got down big early, the dugout stayed really positive. Kyle (Cameron) and Dylan (Duarte) did a great job out of the bullpen of holding the game where it was, and, obviously, Joe (Breaux) got a big hit, so it was a fun day for us."

The Crimson Tide entered the bottom of the ninth with the score even at 5-5. The frame began with freshman Sam Praytor reaching on a hit-by-pitch before being pulled for a pinch-runner in redshirt sophomore Connor Stutts. 

Alabama's next hitter, junior Keith Holcombe, beat out a bunt to put pressure on and place two aboard for the Tide.

Alabama will go for the sweep this afternoon at Sewell-Thomas Stadium. 

Bama will call on junior righty Sam Gardner in series finale while the Crusaders will look to senior right-hander Wes Gordon to avoid the sweep. 

Fans can catch all of the action on SEC Network+ with a 1 p.m. CT first pitch.

Tide Senior Earns Academic Honor and Takes Silver in 100 Backstroke at SEC Championships...

College Station, Texas;

Alabama swimming and diving came away from day four of the Southeastern Conference Championships being held on the Texas A&M campus this week with a pair of top-three finishes in the men's 100 backstroke and one of the league's top academic honors.

Senior Luke Kaliszak and sophomore Zane Waddell made it to the podium, going second and third in the men's 100 backstroke, after touching the wall at 45.68 and 45.83, respectively. 

It was a career-best time for Waddell and ranks him third all-time at Alabama.

Between the individual swims and the relays, Kaliszak was honored at the SEC Male Swimming Scholar-Athlete of the Year following a vote of the league's coaches. 

Kaliszak, an NCAA champion and 10 time All-American, carries a 3.9 grade point average as a pre-med major. It marks the third year in a row an Alabama swimmer has earned the honor after back-to-back honors by 2017 senior Connor Oslin.

"That is a well-deserved honor for Luke and a big honor for us," UA head coach Dennis Pursley said. "We've got a lot of athletes on our team that are exceptional students. This isn't the first academic honor he's received but it's one we're very proud of. He works extremely hard in the classroom and in the pool."

Sunday marks the final day of the SEC championships, with prelims getting started at 10 a.m. CT and finals starting at 6 p.m. Day-five events include the men's and women's 200 backstroke, 100 freestyle and 200 breaststroke as well as the women's platform diving event.
