GAINESVILLE, Fla. -- The last time the UF gymnastics team took the floor for a competition, the night ended with the Gators covered in streamers falling from the rafters of Pauley Pavilion.

 

Florida won the 2013 NCAA Championship with a stirring comeback from early trouble at the NCAA Super Six team final. It was the program's first NCAA team title as the Gators joined Alabama, UCLA, Georgia, and Utah as the only schools to claim the sport's top prize.

 

The Gators' quest to repeat begins Jan. 11 at the same place last season ended: UCLA's historic Pauley Pavilion against the host Bruins. Florida fans can get their first glimpse of the 2014 Gators in person when they host Southeastern Conference rival Georgia at the O'Connell Center on Jan. 24.

 

With the season quickly approaching, the Gators announced Tuesday that season tickets are now on sale. You can visit the UF gymnastic team's official ticket website or call 1-800-34-GATOR (Monday - Friday, 8:30 am - 5:00 pm) to order tickets.

 

Tickets for the five home meets can be purchased as a season-ticket package for $25 or for $5 per meet. Children 17-and-under and UF students are admitted for free.

 

The Gators have five home meets this season. After Georgia visits the O'Connell Center, Florida hosts Oklahoma (Jan. 31), Arkansas (Feb. 14), LSU for the annual Link to Pink Meet on Feb. 21, and West Virginia on March 7.

New in 2014: Gator Gymnastics season ticket, Gator Platinum or Gold card holders have the option to purchase a parking pass for gymnastics meets. A parking pass will reserve a spot in the O’Connell Center lot, making it just a few steps from your vehicle to the O’Connell Center to watch the Gators compete. A $25 parking pass will reserve a spot in the O’Connell Center for each of the Gators’ five meets.

 

As Florida coach Rhonda Faehn prepares to enter her 12th season, she once again has one of the nation's most talented rosters.

 

The Gators have the past two NCAA all-around champions in junior Kytra Hunter (2012) and sophomore Bridget Sloan (2013). Two seniors who earned spots in Gator record books with their uneven bars performances in 2013 are back, as Mackenzie Caquatto posted a 10.0 on the event and Alaina Johnson became Florida’s first to win the NCAA bars title. One newcomer, freshman Silvia Colussi-Pelaez, competed in the 2013 World Artistic Gymnastics Championships in Antwerp, Belgium, earlier this month.

 

Colussi-Pelaez pulled off a successful sideways aerial on the balance beam – the first time the skill was executed in World Championships or Olympic competition – and the skill was submitted to the Federation of International Gymnastics to be named in her honor.
