Mikey Meagher, Florida

Senior, Liverpool, N.Y., goalie

Last season's national Goalie of the Year kept the Gators in a difficult season opener by shutting out No. 5 North Carolina for the final 52 minutes of a 5-3 victory. Meagher made nine saves, including three in the second half, as the Gators rallied from a 3-1 deficit, the first time they have ever won a game they trailed at halftime. The victory also marked the first time the Gators, a final four team last spring, have beaten an Atlantic Coast Conference opponent. Meagher has a career goals-against average of 7.90 and a save percentage of .483.
