Five Knights Go Undefeated in Women's Singles at C.L. Varner Invitational

Oct. 10, 2008

WINTER PARK, Fla. (UCFAthletics.com) - Day one of the C.L. Varner Memorial Invitational proved to be very successful for plenty of Knights on the UCF women's tennis team Friday. Five student-athletes did not lose a singles match as they look to advance even further on day two Saturday.

Top seed sophomore Jenny Frisell earned a bye into the second round of the Flight A draw, then topped Armstrong Atlantic State's Alisa Kagukina, 6-0, 6-3. Joining her in the third round will be freshman Andrea Yacaman. The newcomer added two more victories to her season by cruising by Palm Beach Atlantic's Lina Rubiano, 6-0, 6-0, and Nova Southesatern's Justine Feaster (score not available).

Also in Flight A, senior Elvira Serrot picked up a win in round one, defeating NSU's Elisa Leeder, 6-2, 6-2, before falling in the next round.

Over in Flight B singles, freshmen Alexis Rodriguez and Christy Core both took advantage of their byes in the first round by earning wins in round two to advance. Senior Kenza Belbacha secured a straight-set win in round one, but did not play her second-round match.

There were only two doubles contests to be decided in Flight A for UCF, and it notched wins in both of them with the teams of Frisell/Rodriguez and Serrot/Yacaman staying alive after Friday's play.

The Knights continue the event with day two Saturday in Winter Park. Action will wrap up with the third and final day Sunday.
