MIAMI SHORES, Fla. (May 3, 2014) – Making a trip to the NCAA Tournament for the 20th time in program history, fifth-seed Rollins took on fourth-seed West Florida in the South Region I Semifinal on Saturday morning, eventually falling to the Argonauts, 5-2.

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.

The senior class of Rosenberg, Elissa DeCampli and Mariana Salvador will graduate with a career record of 66-31 and four-straight trips to the NCAA postseason.
