ORLANDO, Fla. (UCFKnights.com) - Members of the UCF men's tennis team will compete against some of the top players in Florida when play begins at the Bedford Cup in Tallahassee Thursday. Florida State is hosting the four-day event, which also includes players from Miami, Florida Gulf Coast, Stetson, FAU, Bethune-Cookman, Florida A&M and North Florida.
The tournament will serve as the second event of the fall for the Knights. UCF's young players will have a chance to compete in Tallahassee as the entire squad, except for veterans Matthew Gladstone and Francesc Aulina, will be in action.
In mid-September, UCF's youngsters excelled at the Southern Intercollegiates in Athens, Ga. Four freshmen played for the Knights and combined for six singles victories and two doubles triumphs, with Chris Barrus and Inaki Espindola advancing to the round of 16 in their singles bracket and Barrus and Reece Acree moving on to the quarterfinals of their doubles bracket.
