    National title aspirations no stretch heading into UF’s 2019 campaign
    River Wells, Alligator Sports Writer
    This year, the No. 3 Gators look to reclaim the magic of that run as they start the season off against Missouri at the O’Connell Center. High expectations for UF gymnastics are not the exception, but the norm, and the team certainly isn’t lacking any firepower to meet it this time around.

    Freshman Class
    Here’s what isn’t different about Florida’s recruiting class: it’s No. 1 in the nation.
    The Gators have had a recruiting class placed within the top two spots in nine of the last 10 seasons, and their 2019 freshman class is its seventh No. 1 placing during that streak.

    Veteran Presence
    While the freshman class for UF is impressive, its returning veterans look to continue the program’s dominance in 2019.

    Sophomore Alyssa Baumann is aiming to replicate the considerable success from her team-awarded “Newcomer of the Year” freshman campaign, which included first-team All-America honors, All-SEC honors and distinction of becoming the second freshman in the school’s history to score a 9.975 on the beam (a feat she pulled off twice).
