No. 5 Gators earn seventh SEC sweep

NCAA Volleyball, Florida

GAINESVILLE, Fla. -- Key play from Florida’s back row helped lead the Gators to a sweep against Auburn on Friday evening (25-21, 25-16, 25-12) in front of an Orange and Blue-clad crowd of 2,525 at the Stephen C. O’Connell Center as the Orange and Blue added a seventh league sweep to its slate.

Junior libero Taylor Unroe led the back-row charge for the Gators with 17 digs, while senior middle blocker Chloe Mann helped lead UF’s offensive efforts with a .562 clip, including nine kills, to rack up 10.5 points on the evening. Sophomore middle blocker Simone Antwi collected a team-high 14.0 points behind a team-best 11 kills, while sophomore outside hitter Živa Recek was two kills shy of a double-double with eight slams and 14 digs for UF.

Senior middle blocker Chloe Mann is hitting .475 for her career and is the Florida career record holder in the category. The reigning SEC Player of the Year is the NCAA active leader in hitting percentage and sits just above the NCAA record holder in career hitting percentage, Penn State's Arielle Wilson (.468). Mann needs 133 more attempts to be eligible for the NCAA record.

Florida’s sweep against Auburn marked the seventh match this season the Gators had a perfect serve-reception percentage.
