Stanford Finishes Off Florida - Stanford University Athletics


SEATTLE, Wash. – No. 2 Stanford opened the ITA National Team Indoor Championship with a sweep of No. 8 Florida to advance to Saturday’s quarterfinal against the winner of No. 4 Georgia and No. 12 Ohio State.

The Cardinal secured the doubles point behind wins by Connie Ma and Alexandra Yepifanova on court two (6-2) and Katherine Hui and Valencia Xu on court three (6-4).ย 

In singles, Yepifanova and Angelica Blake each finished their ranked wins in under an hour. Yepifanova knocked off No. 44 Emily De Oliveria, 6-0, 6-2, and Blake beat No. 67 Carly Briggs, 6-1, 6-2. Connie Ma needed an hour and 13 minutes, but she triumphed over No. 70 Rachel Gailis, 6-3, 6-2, to send Stanford on.

For the Cardinal, it snapped a three-match losing streak to the Gators and was the program’s first victory over Florida since a 4-3 win in the NCAA Round of 16 on May 19, 2016.
