Rhonda Faehn spoke at Monday's All-Sports Press Conference

Florida head coach Rhonda Faehn spoke with the media on Monday morning to recap the Gators’ win at the NCAA University Park Regional, as well discuss the team’s training plans for the upcoming NCAA Championships.

The Gators, the defending NCAA champion, advanced to the national site after winning Saturday’s NCAA Regional with a team score of 197.05.

National Association of Collegiate Gymnastics Coaches/Women (NACGC) region awards were announced last weekend at each of the nation’s six regional sites. Faehn spoke about the honors she and Bridget Sloan received. Sloan, the nation’s top-ranked all-arounder, is the NACGC Southeast Region Gymnast of the Year, making her the second Gator to claim the honor since 2010. Ashanée Dickerson was the first Gator to receive the honor in 2010 and also was named the 2011 winner. Regional coach of the year honors went to Faehn for the second consecutive year and the seventh time in her 12 years with the Gators.

The NCAA Championships are set for April 18-20 in the Birmingham-Jefferson Convention Complex (BJCC) in Birmingham, Ala. The Gators begin NCAA Championship competition on Friday, April 18 in NCAA Semifinal II. The top three teams in each of the two semifinal sessions advance to the April 19 NCAA Super Six where the team champion is crowned.
