Last year, UF won the program’s 15th NCAA Regional title in Morgantown, West Virginia and advanced to its 33rd NCAA Championships winning its third consecutive national championship.
The Gators hope to continue their success this year. The Gators are well on their way as they just won their 10th SEC championship Sunday at the North Little Rock’s Verizon Arena. Florida’s 197.775- 197.75 win over Alabama equals the smallest winning margin in the meet’s 36 year history.
Two Gator sophomores picked up SEC titles including Kennedy Baker with an SEC all-around champion (39.65) and Alex McMurtry (39.625).
