Florida tennis finds success on Day 2

The Gators women’s tennis team showed out on the singles court on the second day of the USTA Fall Ranked Spotlight. Florida’s four representatives — McCartney Kessler, Victoria Emma, Marlee Zein and Layne Sleeth — all picked up a win in the first round of singles competition. Sleeth’s performance was most notable, knocking off No. 8 Anna Rogers of NC State in straight sets, 6-2, 6-2, to claim her third consecutive victory over a ranked opponent. The freshman out of Markham, Ontario, Canada, ran into injury trouble after advancing to the main draw, though, forcing her to withdraw from her match against No. 79 Shiori Fukuda and ending her day. Zein and Kessler also both withdrew from their second-round matches after picking up wins against Alana Wolfberg and Catherine Gulihur, respectively. Emma was the only Gator active in the afternoon slate but fell to NC State’s Alana Smith in straight sets to close out the Gators’ Saturday in Lake Nona, Florida.
