For the UMass tennis team to continue its magical run in the NCAA Tournament, the Minutewomen are going to have to pull a monumental upset.

UMass’ reward for winning the Atlantic 10 championship in Orlando, Florida, Sunday, was a trip back to the Sunshine State to face Florida, the No. 1 seed in the field.

The Minutewomen will have time to prepare. They don’t play until May 13 at 1 p.m. in Gainesville.

Anna Woosley, who had the match clinching win over VCU, said she still hadn’t come down from her excitement.

“It’s a bit of a blur. I was just trying hard not to feel the pressure and to block everything out,” she said. “I don’t remember playing my last point. I remember the feeling off elation coming through for my team. It was one of the best feelings I’ve ever had in my life and I’ll always remember. it.”

Meg Colleran earned the win in relief with 4⅓ scoreless innings. She struck out six, gave up one hit and didn’t walk anybody for UMass (25-20).
