The Gator 2009 Countdown: 29 Days To Go
Riley Cooper is back from spending the Summer with the Texas Rangers....hear how his experience went and what he thinks of for returning for his Senior year.
Here is a little news about our rivals up north. And, I am only reporting it because it sheds a little negative light on Coach Mark Richt. And, truly I like Coach Richt...kinda sexy to me. But, let's stay focus. Eric Berry recounts his experience of being recruited by the Bulldogs and their coaching staff. Let me point out also that I think Eric Berry has gotten just a little arrogant to be talk about an incident from three years aga at this point.
It's never too late to talk about recruiting. And, it looks like the SEC is doing just fine in recruiting the 150 by ESPN. Check out who is in the top five in the nation's recruiting by ESPN's standards.
Update On Lacrosse From Gatorsports....3/20
The No. 10 Florida lacrosse team battled against a quick, aggressive Syracuse squad to defeat the No. 11 team in the country, 16-11, in front of 937 fans at Donald R. Dizney Stadium on Saturday afternoon.
The Gators were led by sophomore attacker Ashley Bruns (Ellicott City, Md.), who tied her career-high and her own school record with six goals while adding an assist for a season-high seven points. Florida also saw hat tricks from sophomore midfielders Kitty Cullen (Rockville, Md.) and Brittany Dashiell (Bel Air, Md.).
Sophomore attacker Janine Hillier (Farmingdale, N.Y.) tied her career high in points with four (2 goals, 2 assists), adding two draw controls. Sophomore attacker Caroline Chesterman (South Nyack, N.Y.) scored and added an assist while sophomore midfielder Jamie Reeg (Atlantis, Fla.) scored her first goal of the season.
The Gators were a perfect 4-for-4 from free position and outshot the Orange, 27-20. Florida won the battle on the draw, 18-10, continuing the Gators’ streak of winning the game when out-drawing their opponent. Chesterman and Dashiell each had a team-high four draw controls, which is Chesterman’s career high.
“The draw is so important,” Florida head coach Amanda O’Leary said. “When you possess the ball, they can’t score. Those 18 draws were critical because we needed possession of the ball. Their attackers are such threats and if you give them an inch, the ball is going in the back of the net.”
