Author’s Note:  Given how short a period of time the Gators program has been around this is an accomplishment the local lacrosse community has not focused on enough.  If you are a fan of the Girls game and live in the Gainesville area and have not yet gone out to watch a game then please do so!  The school built a lacrosse only facility that is a superb place to watch a game.  Go out and support them and maybe we will be watching them on Memorial Day weekend as they look to win a national championship.
