Marrit Boonstra (left) and Allie Will advanced to the quarterfinal round.

The University of Florida womenís tennis teamís Marrit Boonstra (The Netherlands) and Allie Will (Boca Raton, Fla.) advanced the quarterfinals of the NCAA Doubles Championships after a three-set victory against Stetsonís Carolina de los Santos and Valentina Galbarini Friday afternoon at the Dan Magill Tennis Complex.

 

The Gator pair next play Tennesseeís top-ranked team of Natalie Pluskota and Caitlin Whoriskey in Saturday afternoonís quarterfinal round. The start time for that match has not yet been determined.

 

The first set was on-serve until the Hatters broke Will in the 12th game to earn the first set. The Gators came right back and took an early break for a 3-1 lead. That was the only break of the second set, as Will served out in the 12th game to force a deciding third, where Florida began with a break and Boonstra held for a 2-0 advantage. The Gators earned another break, but Stetson refused to fold and broke right back for 3-1. UF also stepped up and earned its third break of the frame and kept that lead en route to a 5-7, 7-5, 6-4 victory.

 

Boonstra, a senior, improves her career doubles record to 75-21 career doubles record, including a 24-3 mark playing with Will, who is 37-6 on the doubles court.

 

Earlier in the day, Will, ranked eighth in the country, lost 6-1, 6-4 to Georgiaís 12th-ranked Chelsey Gullickson in the NCAA Singles Championships Round of 16.

 

The Gator freshman concludes the singles portion of her initial rookie season with a 48-5 overall record, the fourth most wins in a season in program history. Will also compiled a 26-match winning streak during the year, a run that tied for the fourth-longest in program history.
