Saturday October 19, 2013WTennis Records Another Strong Showing at ITA Southeast Regional

Athens, GA

Alexandra Cercone is one of three Gators who advanced to the quarterfinals.

Florida’s Alexandra Cercone, Brianna Morgan and Sofie Oyen advanced to the quarterfinals of the singles draw while the freshman doubles team of Kourtney Keegan and Belinda Woolcock marched into the semifinals at the 2013 USTA/ITA Southeast Regional Championships at Georgia’s Dan Magill Tennis Complex on Saturday.

 

The weather played havoc with the day’s schedule, but it didn’t dampen the Gator’s success on the courts.

 

In Sunday’s singles quarterfinal matches that are slated to start at 12:30 p.m., Cercone and Morgan will play each other, while Oyen faces Georgia’s Lily Kimbell.

 

On the doubles court, Keegan and Woolcock battle Georgia’s Lauren Herring and Maho Kowase at 10 a.m.
