The annual Cathedral City Classic is now over, so I thought I'd report on the win-loss records at the event of teams that were either highly ranked coming in or pulled some surprises (tourney site). (Rankings are shown as ESPN.com/USA Softball listed first, USA Today/NFCA second.)

No. 1/3 Arizona 4-1 (lost to Georgia)

No. 3T/1 Georgia 4-1 (lost to Oklahoma State)

No. 3T/2 UCLA 3-2 (lost to Florida and Tennessee; the Bruins also appear to be a little banged up at the moment)

No. 5/4 Florida 5-0

No. 6/6 Oklahoma 1-4 (lost to Georgia, Hawai'i, Long Beach State, and UCLA)

No. 9/7 Washington 5-0

No. 10/8 Tennessee 5-0

No. 11/10 Hawai'i 1-3 (lost to Nebraska, Syracuse, and Virginia; summary)

(Unranked) Syracuse 5-0 (summary)

(Unranked) Fresno State 3-1 (lost to Syracuse)
