Monday September 9, 2013VIDEO: Mary Wise Recaps Texas Road Trip, Previews Active Ankle Challenge
Head coach Mary Wise met with the media as part of UF’s All Sports Press Conference on Monday.
The Florida volleyball team traveled to the Lone Star State for a three-match road swing that saw the Gators go 2-1 with victories over UTSA (3-0) and then-No. 2 Stanford (3-1), before falling to then-No. 1 Penn State on the final day of the Nike Big Four Classic.
For their efforts over the week, the Gators were rewarded with the No. 5 ranking in the latest American Volleyball Coaches Association (AVCA) poll. It marks the first time the Gators were in the top five since November 29, 2010 when Florida was the top seed heading into the 2010 NCAA Tournament.
The Gators return home to host the third annual Active Ankle Challenge. Florida welcomes Georgetown, Iona and Western Michigan to the Stephen C. O’Connell Center Friday-Saturday, September 13-14.
