2010-2011 Florida Gators Swimming and Diving Preview
The Florida Gators are the hot team coming into the season, and the women will look to defend their national title from last year in this new season. The men are also strong contenders in the SEC and could even contend for a national title as well, so there is a great amount of excitement around the program for both the men and women.
The men return an experienced group of swimmers led by SEC Male Swimmer of the Year Conor Dwyer. The Gators are an amazingly deep team, and can win with a number of different swimmers depending on the circumstances. The Gators get the Auburn Tigers at home in a meet that could go a long way in determining the regular season champion in the SEC.
The women's team has a huge target painted on its back after winning last season's national title. They do not seem intimidated, however. Instead, they seem to relish the challenge that it will present them. The only issue that the Lady Gators have is that they only return one senior from a year ago: Monica Dodson. That means it will be up to younger players such as Angelina Ballatore to step forward and compete with the best that the SEC has to offer.
These Florida Gators look ready to strike in both the men's and women's divisions, and I would not be surprised to see them both compete strongly for the SEC and national titles in their upcoming seasons. As long as they can stay healthy, they will not be a program that anyone wants to face.
