This is the second time Kourtney Keegan has been recognized by the SEC.

For the second consecutive week Floridaís Kourtney Keegan (Roswell, Ga.) was recognized as the Southeastern Conference womenís tennis co-freshman of the week, the league office announced Wednesday.

 

The Gator rookie helped Florida record a pair of conference dual match road wins last week against Mississippi State (W, 4-0) and Ole Miss (W, 4-2).

 

Highlights of Keeganís week:

         Involved in the clinching doubles point victory at Mississippi State at the No. 1 position, as the No. 3 teams were locked at 6-all

         Kourtney Keegan collected a pair of straight-set singles victories in both dual match road wins last week.

         Keegan earned her 28th overall singles win, the second-most on the team; she improved to 13-4 in dual matches, including 6-1 in SEC matches.

         Keegan paired with senior Olivia Janowicz against Mississippi State and won her team-leading 30th doubles match of the season; Janowicz and Keegan improved to 12-2 as a tandem.

         Her singles win in the match at Ole Miss gave UF a 3-2 lead and swung the momentum in her teamís favor.

 

 

The No. 11 Gators play their final two regular-season matches this week, beginning Friday when Florida puts it 129-home match win streak on the line against No. 5 Vanderbilt.

 

The win streak is the longest active home-win streak of any NCAA Division I womenís team in any sport.
