Welcome to a humpday edition of Gators News and today’s update is dominated by the tennis and golf teams, both of whom have been in action over the first half of the week. While the golf teams wrapped up their play yesterday, the tennis teams continue on at a prestigious event. Here is a look at the latest from those programs.

Men's golf

The No. 22 men’s golf team wrapped up play at the Colonial Collegiate on Tuesday finishing 12th in the first of three straight weeks of tournaments. Junior Yuxin Lin led the Gators with his second consecutive top-25 finish tied at 13th with a 2-over par scorecard. Next up for Florida is the SEC Match Play Championship next week, with the first round teeing off on Sunday, Oct. 10 at Shoal Creek Golf Course.

The No. 9 women also concluded competition at the Windy City Classic yesterday, with newcomer junior Jackie Lucena placing second overall to help the Gators earn their third-straight third-place finish. The squad gets a couple of weeks off before returning to action at The Ally at Old Waverly from Oct. 25 to 27.
