Sunday February 26, 2012No. 2 Florida Against No. 13 North Carolina Canceled Due to Rain

Gainesville, Fla.

The No. 2 Florida Gators squared off against the No. 13 North Carolina Tar Heels on an uncharacteristic cold and gloomy day at Linder Stadium at Ring Tennis Complex on the University of Florida campus. After rain pushed back the start time over an hour, the match was eventually canceled due to rain during doubles competition. The match will not be rescheduled.


With the doubles point on the line, junior Allie Will and sophomore Alexandra Cercone’s match against the 24th-ranked doubles team, Shinann Featherston and Lauren McHale, was called due to the rain.


In the doubles action prior to the cancellation, Gator junior Lauren Embree and sophomore Sofie Oyen defeated Zoe De Bruycker and Caroline Price, 8-0 in 36 minutes, while Haley Hemm and Tessa Lyons of UNC defeated senior Joanna Mather and junior Caroline Hitimana 8-2 in 45 minutes.


The Gators pursuit for their 99th straight home victory will continue against Florida State on Wednesday, February 29, at 5 p.m. at Linder Stadium at Ring Tennis Complex.
