After advancing through the first two rounds into the quarterfinals, the Rebels’ SEC Championship journey comes to an end with a 4-0 loss to Florida.
Ole Miss (11-13, 3-10 SEC) had an uphill battle from the start, facing two ranked doubles teams on Florida (16-6, 9-4 SEC). All three doubles matches were tight at first, however the Gators’ No. 1 and No. 2 doubles teams pulled away, grabbing the initial lead.
Ludmila Kareisova and Emma Kette bounced back from yesterday’s loss, leading on court three by a score of 5-3 before the match was abandoned.
Despite a Kette first-set win, the rest of the Rebels dropped their opening sets. Lillian Gabrielsen turned it around with a 6-2 second set win, forcing a third set. Unfortunately, Ole Miss fell on the odd numbered courts, clinching the match for Florida.
The NCAA Division I team tournament will be released in a selection show on May 1 at 5 p.m. CT. The singles and doubles brackets will be announced on May 2 in a press release at 5 p.m. CT.
