NEW ORLEANS — The Florida men’s tennis team continued play at the Southeastern Conference Coaches’ Indoor Championships at the Hilton in New Orleans. The day has been highlighted by two Gators advancing to the quarterfinals of their respective draws before their runs came to an end.

Senior Greg Ouellette (No. 8) started the day with a three-set victory over Georgia’s 67-ranked Jamie Hunt (4-6, 7-6 (3), 6-4). Following that, he was defeated by Tennessee’s 93rd-ranked John Patrick Smith in the quarterfinals, 6-3, 6-4.

Florida newcomer Erik Corace also won his round of 16 match as he knocked off LSU’s Sebastian Carlsson, who was the fifth seed in the B draw (6-4, 6-4). However, Corace dropped his quarterfinal match against Georgia’s second-seeded Javier Garrapiz (6-3, 6-3).
