The Gators return ten starters from a team that finished 17-7 a year ago and made a postseason run to the Elite Eight.

Head coach Becky Burleigh will once again be at the helm for Florida. Burleigh has accumulated a record of 407-110-32 in twenty-three seasons at UF.

Florida will get underway in regular season play on August 17 against Washington at Donald R. Dizney Stadium, where the Gators have moved into on a permanent basis.
