GAINESVILLE, Fla. (WCJB) -The Florida Gator gymnastics team opens the season in three weeks, and Florida will do so as the second-ranked team in the country.

The Gators slide just behind defending national champion Michigan in the WCGA preseason coaches poll. All-Around star Trinity Thomas and fifth-year gymnasts Alyssa Baumann and Megan Skaggs are among those back for Florida in what promises to be a highly competitive year for college gymnastics across the board.

Florida will play an extremely difficult schedule as well. The Gators’ home slate alone includes matchups against No. 3 Oklahoma, No. 5 LSU, and No. 6 Alabama.

Last season, the Gators spent a large chunk of the regular season ranked No. 1, won the SEC regular season crown, and made the NCAA Championship Finals.
