University of Florida head coach Amanda O’Leary addressed the media Monday morning as part of the Gators’ All-Sports Media Day.
O’Leary discussed the Gators’ effort in the team’s win over Johns Hopkins for their third ALC victory and 12th straight overall, as well as looking ahead to the upcoming showdown between the No. 6 Gators and No. 2 Northwestern. O’Leary talked about the play of sophomore goalkeeper Mikey Meagher, the importance of playing aggressive, the pressure of playing Northwestern for the No. 1 seed in the ALC Tournament and how prepared she feels the Gators are for withstanding that test.
Florida returns to action this Thursday for the home finale against No. 2 Northwestern. Opening draw between the Gators and the Wildcats is set for 6:30 p.m.
