The Tars end their season with a record of 17-7 while the Argos advance to face host and top-seed Barry in the South Region Final on Sunday.
Rollins found themselves in a hole after doubles, dropping three tough matches, heading to singles play down 3-0.
In singles, UWF would make it 4-0 with a win in the No. 4 match but the Tars battled their way back in it with wins in the No. 3 and No. 2 matches to make it 4-2. First, freshman Shannon Etten defeated Nina Bubelova handily, 6-2, 6-1, in the No. 3 match before senior Ashley Rosenberg took care of #47 Laure-Eline Faure, 6-3, 6-4, in the No. 2 match.
Unfortunately, with Rollins battling in the three unfinished singles matches, the Argos came back with a win in the No. 5 match to clinch the win and advance to face Barry on May 4.
