Both the Gators men’s and women’s tennis teams look to continue their winning ways in their respective NCAA Tournaments. Both teams will face-off against the North Carolina Tar Heels on Friday afternoon, but will compete in different locations. The men’s squad will host UNC in Gainesville while the women will travel to Chapel Hill for their bout.
No Signs of Slowing Down for the Men
The Gators are seeking their second-straight national championship, and they have a solid chance to bring another trophy to Gainesville. The team sports a 25-2 overall record and have not lost a contest since Feb. 18. The team was unfazed through their first two rounds of NCAA Tournament play, steamrolling both New Orleans and No. 29 Miami (FL) 4-0.
Friday’s matchup against No. 15 UNC will mark the men’s sixth-straight NCAA Round of 16 appearance.
