Final Stats

ORLANDO, Fla. (www.ucfathletics.com) - UCF failed to drop a set Friday afternoon as the women's tennis team shutout Tennessee Tech, 6-0, at the UCF Tennis Complex. The Knights (6-5) and Golden Eagles (2-9) decided to play singles first due to the threat of inclement weather and with the match already decided, doubles matches were not held.

"We did a solid job of adjusting to the conditions out there today," said head coach Stephanie Nickitas. "I am very happy with the results and how we did not drop a set across the lineup. This should provide us with a lot of confidence heading into our spring-break trip to Texas."

By winning all six singles contests, UCF posted its third shutout of the season. Freshman Jenny Frisell took down Kelly Holtzhausen, 6-3, 6-0, by playing in her first match at the No. 1 position since Feb. 10. At No. 2, junior Elvira Serrot did not have trouble against Mireia Cano, claiming a 6-2, 6-2 victory.

Meanwhile, senior Kyla McNicol flew past Diana Woodcock at No. 3, 6-2, 6-3, and junior Kenza Belbacha posted the same scores in a win vs. Kay Ngiam at No. 4. Over at No. 5 singles, senior Anna Yakimchenkova surrendered just two games for a 6-2, 6-0 triumph against Katie Barnhill, and senior Jennifer Carati collected a 6-1, 7-5 victory vs. Evgenia Yartseva at No. 6.

UCF hits the road next week for spring break, traveling to Texas to square off against Houston Monday at 3 p.m. and Rice Tuesday at 10 a.m.
