Kansas No. 1 doubles players Janet Koch, left, watches her teammate, Nina Khmelnitckaia, return a volley at the net during their NCAA Tournament doubles match against Denver on Friday, May 3, 2019, at Jayhawk Tennis Center at Rock Chalk Park. The Jayhawks defeated Denver 4-0 to advance to play Florida in Round 2.
With the rest of the matchups already decided Friday in an NCAA Super Regional, a spot in the national quarterfinals for either powerhouse Stanford or Big 12 champion Kansas came down to the No. 5 singles match.
Not long after the Kansas women’s tennis team notched its first Sweet 16 berth since 1998, the squad got back to work.
