LAKELAND, Fla. -- This is where they figured they'd be.

Barry and Lynn for all the marbles.

The No. 2-ranked Buccaneers cruised to a 5-0 sweep of No. 12 Rollins Saturday in the Florida Blue Sunshine State Conference Championships semifinals at Beerman Tennis Center. It sets up a matchup between the league's top two teams for the title at noon Sunday.

Barry (21-0) won the first two doubles matches in rapid fashion as Mona Mansour and Cristina Valladares beat Kaylie Ragsdale and Lisa Loft, 8-3, at the top flight. Olivia Matuszak and Julie Stas rolled to an 8-1 win over Ashley Rosenberg and Mariana Salvador at No. 2.

Rollins (12-10) put up a fight at the No. 3 flight, pushing Caroline Wendling and Linda Fritschken to a tiebreaker before the Bucs duo finally put the Tars team of Elissa DeCampli and Callie Whitlock away, 9-8 (7-2).

Matuszak, ranked 38th in the country, beat Whitlock, 6-1, 6-0, at No. 4 singles to give the Buccaneers a 4-0 match lead. Wendling finished it off with a 6-1, 6-0 victory over DeCampli to send Barry to the championship match.
