West Fla. knocks out Rollins

  Fernanda Amaral clinched West Florida's win with a 6-1, 6-4 win at No. 5 singles

MIAMI -- West Florida avenged a close mid-season loss by defeating Rollins 5-2 in the semifinals of the NCAA DII South Regional on Saturday afternoon. West Florida (24-4, 9-0 GSC) wins its 15th consecutive match and will face Barry in the NCAA DII South Regional finals on Sunday.

"The girls came out and played very hard today in doubles," head coach Derrick Racine said. "We grabbed the early lead in all three doubles matches and just kept playing solid. In singles Katarina [Dikosavljevic] played awesome and never let up. Fernanda [Amaral] clinched the final match with aggressive play. It is always great when you can come back at the end of the year and beat a good team that had beaten you earlier in the season."
