The 2012 SEC Champion Gator volleyball team was honored at Saturday's Homecoming game.

The No. 5 Florida volleyball team took part in 2013 Homecoming festivities Saturday afternoon as the Gators were honored during Florida football’s Homecoming game against Vanderbilt at Ben Hill Griffin Stadium for bringing home the 2012 SEC Championship last fall under SEC Coach of the Year Mary Wise. The league title was the 20th in volleyball program history for the Orange and Blue as the Gators went on to advance to the Sweet 16 in the NCAA Tournament last season.

 

In the midst of shooting for yet another league title this fall, the Gators were able to celebrate 2012 successes in front of a crowd of 88,004 at the Florida vs. Vanderbilt game, including four 2012 All-America honors, five All-SEC selections, SEC Player of the Year honors for current senior Chloe Mann, AVCA National Freshman of the Year and SEC Freshman of the Year honors for current sophomore Živa Recek and SEC Coach of the Year honors for Wise before turning their attention towards the final stretch of the 2013 regular season, including three straight home matches Nov. 13, 15 and 17.

 

Florida kicks off the three-match home stand with a 6 p.m. tilt against South Carolina at the Stephen C. O’Connell Center Wed., Nov. 13, before playing host to SEC rival and current conference leader, Mizzou, Nov. 15 at 7 p.m., as the Orange and Blue will initiate Gator5K – Pack the O’Dome for the pivotal league clash between the Gators and Tigers. Florida will wrap up the weekend by hosting Alabama Sunday, with first serve slated for 2 p.m.
