· Katie Mitchell: Coming off a career performance in Chapel Hill, shooting a 69 in the final round, Mitchell takes the top spot for the Gators at The Alamo. This Gator ranks in the top-25 individually in last round scoring average, with an average of 70.33, in Division I women’s golf so far this season.
· Karolina Vlckova: Just a freshman, Vlckova makes her fourth-consecutive appearance at the top of the Florida lineup this week. She’s playing to end her first collegiate fall season on a high note.
· Maria Torres: Competing in her third tournament of the fall, Torres has illuminated herself as a solid contributor to the Florida team and is prepared to perform well at The Alamo.
· Sarah Schober: Consistency in Schober’s game has given her another chance to compete for the Gators after finishing seven-over at the Tar Heel Invite.
· Camilla Hedberg: Hedberg has earned another shot to improve on her 2013-14 season performance on the course.
SEC Showdown: Florida will go up against four SEC foes at the 2013 Alamo: No. 8 Arkansas, LSU, Tennessee and Texas A&M.
Head Coach Emily Glaser Says: “We want to end the fall on a good note. We have done so many things right this fall, but we have yet to put three solid days together. The girls know they are capable of much more. They have been working hard on their games and are excited to compete.”
