    Gators Sweep Alabama to Stay Perfect in SEC Play

    No. 2 Florida earns 12th-straight victory over top-50 opponent

    Riding an 11-match winning streak, but struggling to earn the doubles point in several matches, Florida made a change in the pairings. And it worked.

    Oliver Crawford and Alfredo Perez teamed up for a quick 6-1 victory on court 2. McClain Kessler and Johannes Ingildsen dropped their match on court 1, 6-3. But Duarte Vale and Sam Riffice gave the Gators the early advantage with a 6-3 win on court 3.

    There were no surprises in singles, however, as the Gators took five of the opening sets.
    In two sets, Vale cruised to his 9th-straight win and improved to 8-0 in the SEC. Ingildsen put Florida up 3-0 with his 2-set decision on court 2.

    Gators Top Auburn in Final Road Match
    No. 2 Florida clinches at least a share of the SEC title with one match remaining
    For the first time since 2005, the Gators are 11-0 in the league action and Sunday's match with South Carolina will determine the championship standings. With a win over the Gamecocks, Florida would be the sole winner of the regular season title. A loss would create a tie at the top of the standings based on record, resulting in co-champions

    Florida entered the match in Auburn having won its last 12 matches. It stuck with the same doubles lineup from Friday at the No. 1 and No. 2 positions, but paired Lukas Greif and Andy Andrade at No. 3. The Gators quickly claimed the early advantage with 6-1 wins from McClain Kessler and Johannes Ingildsen on one and Oliver Crawford and Alfredo Perez on two. Greif and Andrade's 5-1 lead on court three went unfinished.

    Quotes from the Gators:
    Sophomore Oliver Crawford
    "Everyone came out today ready to go and played very well. We know we still have to beat South Carolina to win the SEC outright and that's what we are focused on doing. We don't want to share the title. South Carolina is a very good team and it will be very tough. We are looking forward to the challenge."
