Last century, the University of Florida athletic program produced 16 national championships. The Gators have equaled that total in the past 14 years, starting with men’s golf in 2001.
UF has won national championships five straight athletic seasons, with multiple national titles in each year: men’s track and field and women’s swimming and diving in 2010; men’s indoor track and field and women’s tennis in 2011; men’s indoor and outdoor track and field and women’s tennis in 2012 and gymnastics and men’s outdoor track and field in 2013.
Which UF team will join the 2014 gymnastics team with a national championship? There are plenty of Gator spring sports teams certainly capable, as they are ranked in the top 10 of various polls: top-ranked men’s track and field, No. 2 women’s track and field, No. 4 lacrosse, No. 4 women’s tennis, No. 5 softball and No. 9 baseball.
