The Florida Gator volleyball team advanced to 3-0 on the season with their third win of the Campus USA Credit Union Invite in Gainesville in straight games (25-16, 15-17, 25-18). Chloe Mann led the Gators with 15 kills, and Taylor Brauneis lead the team with 33 assists. Three Gators earned All-Tournament honors: Ziva Recek, Alex Holston, and Chloe Mann who also won tournament MVP.
Gator head coach Mary Wise said her team showed some jitters in its first two matches, being a little impatient at times. However, in Saturday’s game, she said the team improved and improved fast.
Senior setter Taylor Brauneis said she’s adapted to the new faces on the team, and the chemistry between them is coming along.
The team has the Nike Big Four Classic coming up next week, and junior Madison Monserez says the coaches do a great job of simulating their play styles in practice.
The team’s next match is Thursday at UT-San Antonio at 5:30. After that, they travel to Austin for the Nike Big Four Classic where they will face Stanford and Penn State.
