Florida will face six more IWLCA opponents this season: No. 1 North Carolina, No. 5 Stony Brook, No. 9 Princeton, No. 12 Loyola, No. 16 Navy and No. 19 Dartmouth.

Up next, the Gators return home for a matchup against No. 12 Loyola on Saturday, February 22. Opening draw is set for 12 p.m. at Donald R. Dizney Stadium.
