The Rebels, ranked No. 17 nationally, earned their seventh Sweet 16 appearance overall and improved to 17-5. They will face Florida in the third round Thursday at 8 a.m. at the Dan Magill Tennis Complex in Athens, Ga.
“It's great to be in the Sweet 16. This was one of our goals before the season as a team, and now we can check that off,” head coach Mark Beyers said. “We are looking forward to facing Florida again. They beat us pretty good the first time, and hopefully we can give them a better match this time.”
