Gators News: Men’s tennis advances, men’s golf continues

·2 min read

The postseason is in full swing — literally — for Florida’s men’s tennis and golf teams as the two battled in their respective sports on Monday for a chance at collegiate athletics immortality. The tennis team found sweeping success yesterday and will advance to the next round while the golf crew broke even with a chance to climb higher today. Here is a look at what is happening with those two squads.

Men's tennis The top-seeded men's tennis team dispatched the No. 16 seed Illinois Illini — the Big 10 regular-season and tournament champions — with a straight sweep on Monday. The win advances the Gators to the quarterfinals, where they will play the No. 8 Texas A&M Aggies on Thursday at 7:30 p.m. EDT at the USTA National Campus, which will be broadcast on the Tennis Channel.

Men's golf The men's golf finished the first round of competition at the NCAA Regionals yesterday tied for 8th place after notching an even scorecard on the day. Play continues today starting at 11:55 a.m. EDT and will continue until tomorrow.
