May 10, 2007

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. - Two weeks ago, the JU women's tennis made history by winning its first Atlantic Sun Conference title.

On Saturday, the Dolphins look to make more history as they face No. 4 Florida in Gainesville on Saturday at 10 a.m.

JU (19-3) is one of the hottest teams in the country, having won 16 straight - including three straight to win the A-Sun Tournament.

"We're excited about getting out on the court and competing on Saturday," said JU head coach Jarod Camerota. "Florida is a very good team, but we're going to come out, give it our best and see what happens."

The match will begin with the double competition - three doubles matches with the team that wins two claiming one point. This has been one of the strengths of the Dolphins - having won the doubles point in each match during the streak.

Following the doubles matches, the teams will enter into singles play - six singles matches, each worth one point.

The top of the lineup has been solid for the Dolphins of late. No. 2 Lena Willi has won 15 straight, No. 1 Emese Sulyos has won 14 straight and No. 3 Tatiana Soldatova has won eight straight.

"The girls have come out and worked hard in preparation for this," Camerota said. "They want to come out and give it their best against the best."
