Gainesville, Fla.

The Gators remained the No. 2-ranked team in the country.

All seven members of the Florida women’s tennis team appear in the latest national singles rankings and the Gators held at the No. 2 position in the team rankings administered and released by the Intercollegiate Tennis Association (ITA).

 

This the second consecutive week Florida is slotted behind North Carolina in the weekly rankings and is one of seven teams from the Southeastern Conference earning a spot in the top 25.

 

Senior All-American Lauren Embree is ranked No. 1 for the third consecutive time in the bi-weekly singles rankings, which also had Sofie Oyen at No. 12, Alexandra Cercone at No. 53, Brianna Morgan at No. 107, Danielle Collins at No. 115, Olivia Janowicz at No. 118 and Caroline Hitimana at No. 125.

 

Embree also appears twice in the most recent doubles rankings, pairing with Oyen at No. 20 and with Collins at No. 41.

 

The Gators (13-2, 6-1 SEC) begin a heavy road swing this weekend when they play four of their next six matches away from the friendly confines of the Ring Tennis Complex. Florida heads to Baton Rouge, La., and plays LSU on Friday before facing Arkansas on Sunday.
