GAINESVILLE, Fla. – With Florida lacrosse’s 10th season on the horizon, the 2019 schedule has been announced by head coach Amanda O’Leary.

The Gators have 17 regular season games scheduled during the 2019 campaign, as well as a scrimmage against the Scottish National Team.

Florida boasts nine home games this season at Donald R. Dizney Stadium. UF has gone 86-17 (.835) at The Diz in the nine-year history of the program.

During the 2019 season, the Gators will face 10 teams that made their way into the 2018 NCAA Tournament field: Colorado, Maryland, Loyola, Navy, High Point, Syracuse, North Carolina, Princeton, Stony Brook and Jacksonville.

Florida kicks off its 10th season in Denver, when the team takes on Colorado on Feb. 9. The Gators faced the Buffs twice last season, including a matchup in the second round of the NCAA Tournament, where Florida was victorious, 13-9.

The Gators then return to Gainesville to face Maryland – who reached the Final Four a season ago – and the Scottish National Team in a scrimmage.

UF then hits the road for a four-game stretch – facing Loyola, Navy, Elon and High Point over the course of 15 days.

Florida faces three marquee opponents at The Diz following the road stretch, beginning with Syracuse on March 13. The team then takes on UNC and Princeton before heading to Stony Brook to take on the Seawolves. Prior to starting conference play, the Gators face Brown on March 26.

This will be Florida’s first season in the AAC after spending the last four seasons in the BIG EAST. The Gators are 25-3 all-time against the teams in the league and the conference slate begins with a game against Temple (March 30).

UF will then continue its conference schedule with Vanderbilt (April 6) before facing Jacksonville in a nonconference battle.

The rest of the conference schedule is as follows: ECU (April 13), UConn (April 20) and Cincinnati (April 27). The AAC Conference Tournament semifinals will be held on May 2, followed by the championship on May 4.
