UF's women's tennis team managed to win its last two matches with only five scholarship players, but was unable to pull out a third, as the Gators lost to Florida State, 5-2, on a windy Saturday at the Scott Speicher Tennis Center.

The loss was UF's first to the 24th-ranked Seminoles (7-2) in the 49-match series history, as well as snapped a 24-match win streak against instate opponents.

"We were very good in doubles and I was happy to see that, but they were tougher than we were in singles," UF head coach Roland Thornqvist said. "They handled the weather conditions much better than we did and that's unfortunate. This is certainly a teaching moment and hopefully we can learn from today in a hurry with the conference schedule starting next week."

The Gators (6-4) next turn their attention to the Southeastern Conference portion of their schedule, as UF opens its league slate on Friday at No. 20 Kentucky, before facing No. 16 Vanderbilt in Nashville on Sunday.
