Gainesville, Fla.

Kourtney Keegan has won a team-best 29 doubles matches.

Florida’s Kourtney Keegan (Roswell, Ga.) was recognized as the Southeastern Conference women’s tennis freshman of the week, the league office announced Wednesday.

 

The Gator rookie helped Florida record a pair of 4-0 dual match wins last week against Arkansas and LSU.

 

Highlights of Keegan’s week:

·         In the dual match against Arkansas when pending rain forced singles to be played first, Keegan needed just 21 minutes to win her first set and eventually 49 total minutes to produce a 6-1, 6-1 win on court five that gave Florida a quick 1-0 lead.

·         In the dual match against LSU, teamed with Olivia Janowicz and played on the number one court for the first time and the tandem never dropped serve and earned an 8-2 victory for the first individual win of the afternoon.

·         Keegan and Janowicz improved to 11-2 as a team

·         Keegan won her team-best 29th doubles match this season

·         The wins last week were Florida’s 128th and 129th consecutive home victories.

·         The win streak is the longest active run of any NCAA Division I women’s team in any sport.

·         The streak includes 21 postseason wins (SEC and NCAA Tournament).

·         The victory also was UF’s 132nd straight regular-season win at home.

·         The Gators improved to 190-1 all-time at home against SEC teams.

·         UF has won 81 consecutive home matches against SEC teams.

 

The Gators spend the weekend in the Magnolia State, where the team plays at Mississippi State on Friday and at Ole Miss on Sunday.
