At Urbana Ill., Florida senior Lauren Embree, junior Sofie Oyen and junior Alexandra Cercone lost their respective first round matches at the NCAA Singles Championships at the Khan Outdoor Tennis Complex at the Atkins Tennis Center.
Embree and Oyen continue action in the 32-team NCAA Doubles Championships that begins Thursday afternoon. The Gator pair, ranked No. 11 in the country, drew Stanford’s No. 28-ranked Stacey Tan and Ellen Tsay in the first round. The two doubles teams did not meet during the NCAA Team Semifinal match, as Embree and Oyen played the No. 1 position and Tan and Tsay the No. 2 spot.
Embree drew a tough opening-round opponent in No. 21 Jacqueline Cako from Arizona State and the Sun Devil put the pressure on the Gator senior throughout the match en route to a 6-3, 6-2 decision.
Women's golf: At Athens, Ga., No. 9 Florida got improved scores from its bottom three players at the NCAA Women’s Golf Championship. Freshman Ursa Orehek, sophomore Anna Young and junior Elcin Ulu carded second-round scores of two strokes or better to lead the Gators on day two. Florida currently sits in 19th place after play was halted with an overall score of 21-over (597) for the tournament.
