Watch: FSU volleyball coach Chris Poole previews the Seminoles' season
The Gators became a consistent tournament threat in the 90s with five semifinal appearances. They reached the finals in 2003 but lost to Southern California, which claimed its third NCAA national title.
Currently riding a 28 consecutive NCAA tournament appearance streak and 28 straight 25-win seasons dating back to 1991 (head coach Mary Wise's inaugural season), Florida seeks its first national title and a return to the No. 1 ranking. The last time the Gators reached No. 1 was Oct. 9, 2017.
They'll start the 2019 season ranked No. 10 after losing to BYU last season in the third round of the tournament.
Here's Florida's history at the NCAA tournament:

2017, 2003 runner-up
9-time regional finalist
