WACO, Texas - 
Baylor's 19th-ranked women's tennis team came up short against second-ranked Florida, 7-0, on Saturday at the Hawkins Indoor Tennis Center.

In doubles play, the Gators claimed the first match on court 2 as Kourtney Keegan and Olivia Janowicz defeated Jordaan Sanford and Alex Clay, 6-0. The 32nd-ranked pairing of Sofie Oyen and Belinda Woolcock snagged the second victory over the 38th-ranked duo Victoria Kisialeva and Blair Shankle, 6-3 on court 1.

In singles action, Florida took control of all six matches. First, the 36th-ranked Woolcock beat Alex Leatu, 6-0, 6-2, shortly before No. 27 Oyen defeated Shankle, 6-1, 6-1.

Meanwhile, Kisialeva fell against 23rd-ranked Alexandra Cercone, 6-0, 6-2, and Sanford fell to No. 18 Brianna Morgan, 6-3, 6-0. The 39th-ranked Keegan claimed her win over Makenzie Craft, 6-4, 6-1 on court 5.

To end the match, 38th-ranked Generette pushed the 17th-ranked Janowicz to a third set, but ended up on the short end of a 2-6, 7-6(7-5), 10-3 decision.

The Lady Bears now hold a 6-1 record and Florida leads the all-time series 5-0.


  • The last time the Lady Bears got swept was Feb. 27, 2013 against Texas A&M in College Station.

Kisialeva, Shankle, and Sanford all suffered their first loss of the season in singles action.

"This is where maturity comes in. If we can look at this match and examine the details then we could learn from it and get a lot better." - Head coach Joey Scrivano

"Winning in tennis is really hard especially when you're playing opponents like Janowicz, who's a senior, who has won over 100 matches. Unfortunately, you have to go through matches like that to learn, but the good news is she put herself in a position to win and right now that's a step in the right direction" - Scrivano on Generette

The Lady Bears will be back in action on Feb. 8 at 1 p.m. when they will face Rice at the Hawkins Indoor Tennis Center.
