The Florida Gator volleyball squad begins the 2012 season this weekend with the Campus USA Credit Union Invite in Gainesville. The first matchup for Florida will be tonight against Florida International. On Saturday, the Gators play a doubleheader against Florida A&M and Florida Gulf Coast.
Florida finished 27-6 a year ago and made it to the Elite Eight of the NCAA Tournament and gone from that team are two big time stars in Kelly Murphy and Kristy Jaeckel and others.
So now the Gators introduce an assortment of new players this season and head coach Mary Wise says her team certainly has quality, if not a host of experience.
But Florida will have its share of veteran leadership headed by senior middle blocker Betsy Smith.
Catch all the action Friday on Country 103.7 The Gator at 7:20 pm. And tune in Saturday on ESPN Radio 850/900 at 11:50 am and 7:20 pm.
