Welcome back from a weekend chock-full of Gators sports — the first since the end of the spring season. It was a mostly successful three days for Florida athletics as three of the four programs competing came away victorious while a fourth stumbled against a top-25 opponent. Additionally, the women’s golf team opens its fall season today out on the links. Here is a look at the latest from around the Swamp.

Ring Tennis Complex and over those three days tallied a 25-8 record. The team travels to Boston next for a collegiate tournament in conjunction with the Laver Cup from Sept. 24 to 26.

Friday night's affair ended with a 3-1 score while the Gators were shut out on Saturday, 3-0.

The men's team scored 25 points in their 6k race after placing five Gators in the top 10 while the women's team also earned a first-place finish in the 4k with 25 points as an impressive six runners landed in the top 10.
