The Kentucky Wildcats softball team has earned the No. 6 seed in this week’s SEC Tournament. They’ll begin postseason play Wednesday night against the 11th-seeded Georgia Bulldogs at approximately 7:30 pm ET.

The Alabama Crimson Tide will be hosting the tournament at Rhodes Stadium in Tuscaloosa. They’re the No. 3 seed and will play the winner of Cats vs. Dawgs on Thursday at 7:30 pm ET.

Kentucky finished the season 13-11 in the SEC, tying LSU for fifth place. LSU won the tiebreaker by virtue of its two out of three wins vs. Kentucky in last month’s series.

Georgia finished SEC play 7-17 after being swept by Mississippi State this past weekend to conclude regular-season play.

Florida and Arkansas were crowned co-SEC Champions, both finishing 19-5. Florida is the No. 1 overall seed in the tournament since it won the most amount of games vs. the highest-seeded common opponent (Alabama). Florida and Arkansas did not play in the regular season.
