ATHENS, Ga. – The No. 8 seed LSU women’s tennis team ended its run at the Southeastern Conference Tournament Friday when it dropped a 4-0 decision to No. 1 Florida at Georgia’s McWhorter Courts in Athens, Ga.

“I think we gave a good effort against Florida. Florida is a really, really good team and one of the best teams in the country. They played solidly up and down the line and played a great match today,” head coach Tony Minnis said.

In doubles, 82nd-ranked Whitney Wolf and Keri Frankenberger fell to No. 4 Marrit Boonstra and Allie Will on court one 8-1.

Florida (22-2, 11-0 SEC) clinched the doubles point on court two as No. 69 Lauren Embree and Joanna Mather defeated Lady Tigers Kaitlin Burns and Hannah Robinson 8-4. Nicole Kantor and Ebie Wilson were trailing Caroline Hitimana and Anastasia Revzina 6-3 on court three when the doubles point was clinched.
