Florida Gators Weekend Open Thread: Gymnastics begins quest for NCAA three-peat

Florida's gymnastics team can take its first steps toward a three-peat Saturday afternoon.

While Florida's stick-and-ball sports are almost all in action this weekend, and the Gators are hosting the Florida Relays, the most important competition featuring Gators of the next two days will be happening in West Virginia.

That's where Florida's gymnastics team, angling for a third straight national title, will begin the NCAA Championships, in a Morgantown Regional they are favored to win for a ticket to advance, despite the presence of three other top-20 teams, and a fourth (New Hampshire) in the national top 25. Florida is as healthy as it has been all year, and, if the Gators can clean up stumbles on the balance beam that cost them an SEC title, they should be in contention for a crown again.

Elsewhere, Florida's baseball team won an SEC series opener for the first time in 2015 by beating Missouri on Friday, and will look to win the series on Saturday; Florida's softball team is hosting South Carolina, and had a power surge in a Friday win; Florida lacrosse is in the middle of a Big East match with Georgetown as I type this; the Gators women's golf team is finishing its regular season schedule at the Bryan National Collegiate; Florida's track teams are running and so forth at the Florida Relays; and Florida's men's and women's tennis teams each meet No. 8 foes on Sunday.

Here's your weekend how-to-follow guide. (Apologies for its tardiness; I was under the weather on Friday and slept late today to compensate.
