MEMPHIS, Tenn. (UCFAthletics.com) - Concluding its trip to Tennessee, the UCF women's tennis team shutout Saint Louis, 4-0, in a neutral-site showdown in Memphis Saturday. The victory pushed the Knights' record to 8-5 on the season, and the Billikens fell to 8-4.
UCF produced the early 1-0 lead by dominating doubles play. At No. 2, Courtney Griffith and Caroline Eberhart topped Maria Toro Moreno and Natalia Yacaman, 8-3, and Jenna Doerfler and Sofia Baptista teamed up for an 8-4 victory over Mia Elmore and Madeline Jolly at No. 3. Genevieve Lorbergs and Josephine Haraldson held a 7-4 lead at No. 1 before the match was halted since the Knights already claimed the doubles point.
Making quick work in singles, the Black and Gold delivered three straight-set wins for the overall 4-0 result. At No. 3, Haraldson defeated Madison Cook, 6-3, 6-3, Eberhart cruised by Toro Moreno at No. 4, 6-2, 6-1, and Baptista notched a 6-0, 6-3 triumph at No. 6 over Jolly.
Lorbergs and Doerfler were winning at the No. 1 and No. 2 positions, respectively, until UCF got the fourth and final point to stop the match. In the remaining match at No. 5, Griffith was locked in a 1-6, 6-3, 1-1 contest against Yacaman, but that also was not completed.
The Knights will be back home Wednesday when they face off with Miami (Ohio) at 2 p.m.
