URBANA, Ill. --- Georgia’s fifth-ranked doubles team of junior Hernus Pieters and freshman Ben Wagland posted another win Friday to move into the quarterfinals of the 2013 NCAA Doubles Championships at the University of Illinois’ Khan Outdoor Tennis Complex.

The duo defeated North Florida’s 22nd-ranked team of Moritz Buerchner and Norbert Nemcsek by score of 6-4, 6-3 to reach the round of eight. Wagland and Pieters were already All-Americas by virtue of entering the tournament as a No. 5-8 seed, but backed it up by reaching the quarterfinals – the second All-America criteria. Today’s win improved Wagland and Pieters to 29-9 on the year and ran their winning streak to eight matches.

Georgia’s pair will next take on No. 41 Chris Camillone and David Holiner of Texas in tomorrow’s quarterfinal, as they defeated top-seeded Hunter Reese and Mikelis Libietis of Tennessee today in straight sets.

The time for tomorrow’s match has not yet been set.

The Bulldogs have won three NCAA doubles titles all-time, including Ola Malmqvist and Allen Miller in 1983, Matias Boeker and Travis Parrott in 2001, and most recently John Isner and Antonio Ruiz in 2005.
