Orlando, FL – Nandini Das and Andrea Garcia are the longest-tenured members of the FSU women’s tennis team. The redshirt seniors came in to the program together in 2016 and they are not only the last two Seminoles still competing but both are now All-Americans. Das and Garcia became the seventh and eighth All-Americans in FSU women’s tennis history and the second pair of All-Americans in the last two seasons after advancing to the NCAA Doubles Championship Quarterfinals Tuesday night.
“This honor is an additional accolade which continues to top off two amazing careers,” said FSU Head Coach Jen Hyde. “They have helped elevate our program so much in their time wearing the Florida State jersey and to confirm their All-America honors with last night’s win is just more validation to their hard work and dedication to our program. What’s great is they aren’t satisfied yet and want to keep pushing forward in this event and make another statement in their amazing careers.”
Das and Garcia are the third doubles pair in Seminole history to earn All-America honors. Audra Brannon and Laura Randmaa earned doubles All-America honors in 1993 and Victoria Allen and Petra Hule were named All-Americans in doubles last season.
Garcia is the all-time winningest player in FSU women’s tennis history and the only Seminole to ever eclipse 200 career victories. She is the only Seminole to ever record 100 wins in singles and doubles and she is also in the Top 10 of six different career wins categories.
Das will finish her FSU career in the Top 10 for career singles wins, career double wins and total wins. She and Garcia are now in the top five for wins by a doubles team at FSU. Das and Garcia also have the sixth-longest win streak by a doubles pair in school history with 10 straight victories.
Das and Garcia will continue their quest for an NCAA Doubles National Championship this evening at 6:00 p.m. For more information follow us on social at FSUWTennis (IG) and @FSU_WTennis (TW) and log on to Seminoles.com.
