The Southeastern Conference announced it’s yearly awards on Sunday. Despite a disappointing season record-wise, the Gators were represented on the All-Conference first team by senior midfielder Lais Araujo.
Araujo led Florida in scoring with five goals and thirteen total points.
Araujo recorded a first half hat-trick at Kentucky in September and earned the SEC’s Offensive Player of the Week for her efforts.
Florida opened the SEC Tournament on Sunday with a thrilling victory over Auburn. The Gators will face #1 seed Vanderbilt on Tuesday at 6:00 PM, with a chance to bolster their NCAA Tournament resume.
