Senior attack Kitty Cullen scored seven points Tuesday to guide No. 2 Florida to a 16-7 win over No. 9 Loyola in a nonconference match at Donald R. Dizney Stadium. The Gators improved to 8-0 after their fourth win over a Top-10 opponent.
Cullen led the Gators with five goals and two assists, while sophomore midfielder Shannon Gilroy and senior attack Brittany Dashiell each chipped in hat tricks to help the Gators score in double-digits for the seventh straight game. Cullen recorded four goals for the second straight game and has recorded multiple goals in the past six Florida victories.
Florida held the Greyhounds (2-3) to seven goals. UF hasn't allowed more than seven goals in one contest at home this season.
Senior goalkeeper Mikey Meagher, the ALC Defensive Player of the Week, recorded eight saves. Senior defender Kayla Stolins recorded a career-high seven draw controls, as the Gators won draw controls 16-9.
The Gators will play at No. 13 Dartmouth at noon Saturday.
GYMNASTICS: Sophomore Kytra Hunter claimed her second SEC Gymnast of the Week honor and Bridget Sloan picked up her fourth SEC Freshman of the Week award.
Hunter, the defending NCAA all-around champion, picked up her third title of the season Friday against No. 14 Minnesota with the nation's top all-around total of the last four seasons, 39.80. The total equals Florida's school record set in 1996 by 11-time All-American Kristen Guise. Sloan was runner-up in Friday's all-around with a collegiate-best total of 39.75.
