The No. 11 Florida women's tennis team strives to extend its program-record of 129 straight wins at home as it hosts No. 5 Vanderbilt on Friday at 3 p.m. at the Ring Tennis Complex.

The Gators (17-4, 9-2 Southeastern Conference) will put that mark to the test against a Commodores team which is currently atop the league standings at 17-4 overall and 10-1 in the SEC.

"It's going to be really tough," UF coach Roland Thornqvist said. "They're playing at a high level, and one thing that stands out with this Vanderbilt team is they have pretty much the same type of player, or quality of player, up and down the lineup. There are no holes in their lineup.”

Florida's streak is the longest active of any Division-I women's team in any sport and the second-longest active home win streak

The Gators' three seniors — Alexandra Cercone, Olivia Janowicz and Sofie Oyen — will be honored on Sunday prior to Florida's home match versus No. 30 Kentucky at 1 p.m.
