Florida lacrosse joins Big East

Ga8or22

Eventis sultorum magister.
The move comes after the dissolution of the American Lacrosse Conference, where the Gators have competed the past five years.
“We’re very excited for this next step for Florida lacrosse,” UF coach Amanda O’Leary said. “We enjoyed the high level of competition in the ALC, and are looking forward to the new challenges the Big East will provide.

“We’ve built a legacy of success during our first five years and that’s something we look to continue while competing in the Big East.”
Vanderbilt is also making the move to the Big East from the ALC, keeping the rivalry intact for Florida. The conference includes Cincinnati, Connecticut, Georgetown, Marquette, Temple and Villanova.

“Both programs (UF and Vandy) have proven histories of success and will reinforce the strength and high level of play Big East women’s lacrosse is known for,” said Chris Schneider, Big East Associate Commissioner for Olympic Sports.
The Gators finished the 2014 season with an 18-3 record after falling to Northwestern in the NCAA quarterfinals. Florida swept the ALC regular season and tournament titles that helped the Gators earn a No. 4 seed for the NCAA tournament. The Gators have a 5-1 record against teams in the current alignment of the Big East. Louisville, which leaves the league for the ACC in 2015, swept the Big East regular season and tournament titles in 2014.
