Florida's Lauren Embree retains No. 1 ranking, Gators No. 2



Florida senior Lauren Embree remains the No. 1 player in the nation in the latest Intercollegiate Tennis Association's national team rankings, released today.

While Embree is on top, the Florida team (17-2, 10-1 SEC) retained its No. 2 ranking for the fourth consecutive week.

The Gators are ranked behind No. 1 North Carolina. Texas A&M, Georgia, Southern California, UCLA, Michigan, Alabama, Duke and Miami (Fla.) round out the top 10.

Embree, a four-time All-American, has also retained the top ranking for four straight ranking periods. The poll is released bi-weekly.  

All seven members of Florida’s current team earned a national singles ranking for the second consecutive listing: Sofie Oyen No. 13, Alexandra Cercone No. 57, Brianna Morgan No. 104, Danielle Collins No. 113, Caroline Hitimana No. 120 and Olivia Janowicz No. 125.

Embree and Oyen moved up three spots in the national doubles rankings to No. 17, while Embree also pairs with Collins at No. 47.

Florida will close out the regular season this weekend with matches at Kentucky on Friday and at No. 18 Vanderbilt on Sunday.
