Florida Gators gymnastics starts season ranked number 3

Special report on the Florida Gators Gymnastics:

GAINESVILLE, Fla. – Florida is No. 3 on the National Association of Collegiate Gymnastics Coaches preseason poll, released today by the NACGC.

The top five 2019 preseason poll positions mirror the 2018 NCAA Super Six team final results – No. 1 UCLA, No. 2 Oklahoma, No. 3 Florida, No. 4 Louisiana State and No. 5 Utah.

Florida’s been among the nation’s preseason top five every season since 2007 (2007: 3rd; 2008: 2nd; 2009: 3rd; 2010: 4th; 2011: 3rd; 2012: 3rd, 2013: 3rd; 2014: 1st, 2015: 1st, 2016: 2nd, 2017: 5th; 2018: 2nd; 2019: 3rd).

The first eight Florida opponents rank among the preseason top 20, including home dates versus No. 7 Georgia (Feb. 22), No. 10 Kentucky (Jan. 25) and No. 14 Auburn (Feb. 8). The Gators face half of the top six preseason teams on the road – No. 2 Oklahoma (Feb. 1), No. 4 LSU (Jan. 18) and No. 6 Alabama (Feb. 15). Other preseason ranked Gator opponents include at No. 12 Arkansas (March 1) and the 2019 season opens Jan. 11 with a home meet versus No. 19 Missouri.

Florida returns four with 11 All-America honors earned in NCAA competition – Alyssa Baumann, Alicia Boren, Rachel Gowey and Amelia Hundley. Two of those All-Americans are also defending Southeastern Conference event champions – Baumann (balance beam) and Boren (floor exercise).

Joining the Gators are six freshmen, including current U.S. Senior National Team member Trinity Thomas. Leah Clapper and Sydney Johnson-Scharpf also competed at the U.S. Gymnastics Championships, with Johnson-Scharpf earning a spot on 2015-16 U.S. Senior National Team. Nya Reed, Savannah Schoenherr and Halley Taylor all competed at the Junior Olympic Level 10 National Championships. Schoenherr finished her J.O. career by winning the 2018 J.O. uneven bars title.
