Season in Review
The Florida Gators soccer team finished their season with a record of 4-12-4. The Gators in-conference record this season is 3-6-1.
Overall, this was not the Gators’ best season. But following their overtime victory over the Vanderbilt Commodores, the Gators gained motivation heading into the SEC quarterfinals.
With a young team, the Gators will look to continue to grow as a team and look to have a better season next year.
