It will be a bittersweet day when the Gators take the field this weekend.
UF (11-4-2, 7-2 Southeastern Conference) hosts South Carolina (13-4-2, 5-3-2 SEC) tonight at 6 and Vanderbilt (6-8-3, 3-4-2 SEC) on Sunday at 12:30 p.m. in what will be the final home contests for the Gators? eight seniors.
BIt?s actually really sad,C senior Daniela Sanchez said. BI was talking to Shana (Hudson) the other day and she said she can?t believe four years have flown by. It?s sad and exciting at the same time. It?s our last game, and hopefully we come out with a win.C
The seniors aren?t the only players who want to go out on a high note. UF?s underclassmen intend to put in extra effort to give them a proper sendoff.
BI definitely think there?s an extra push for it,C goalkeeper Katie Fraine said. BWe have a lot of seniors this year and we love our seniors, and we really want to give them a bang.C
Senior Night is generally on Friday for UF. Inclement weather forced the Gators and the Commodores to move their match on Oct. 5 to Sunday.
Though the senior class has recorded several big victories, there?s still one thing missing from its resume: a national championship.
BA perfect ending would be a national championship,C forward Ashley Harris said. BHaving the national championship ring. … That?s the bling bling. A national championship would make it the perfect season.C
