With the semester coming to a close and the preparations for fall sports underway, The Oracle takes a look at some of the major stories in USF sports during the summer semester.

Sara Nevins won three games in the Gainesville Regional to send the USF softball team to an NCAA Super Regional in Tampa.
The USF softball team celebrated its first two Super Regional wins in school history, and sealed a spot in its first ever Womens College World Series, where they lost to LSU and Oklahoma.
