Coach: Erin Hill (18th year)
2007 record: 22-14 (10-4 Southeast)
Returning letterwinners: Six
Returning starters: Five
Top players: MB Sydney Brozovich (Sr.); OH Siga Appelgate (Jr.); S Jenna Chavez (So.); OH Emma Johnson (So.); Lib Megan Schiess (Sr.)
Outlook: The Gators placed third in the rugged Southeast last season, but have plenty of experience as they look to improve this fall. Appelgate (194 kills) was a first team All-Southeast League pick and teams with second team selection Brozovich (188 kills) to form an imposing one-two offensive punch, and Chavez (583 assists) got key experience setting as a freshman.
