Gator Men’s Tennis Earn No. 3 Seed in SEC Tournament

The Gator Men’s Tennis team has earned a No. 3 seed for the SEC Tournament. With two wins from this weekend, including a sweep of Auburn 7-0 on Sunday, the Gators finished their regular season with a 9-3 SEC record, which is third-best in the conference.

One of the biggest highlights was Elliott Orkin’s battle against Conner Huertas in the longest and last game of the match. Orkin won the first set 6-2, but Huertas didn’t give up the sweep very easily. The second set ended in a tiebreaker, but Orkin finished on top with the final score of 7-0. This win made it Orkin’s 100th career overall singles win. This record is the eighth all-time in UF’s history. The senior is leaving his mark in the record books with, 179 career combined wins, which is seventh in program history.
