Oct. 8, 2009

ORLANDO, Fla. (UCFAthletics.com) - The Knights are preparing for their second tournament of the fall as they will travel to the UNF Fall Tennis Invitational this weekend. The action is prepared to start Friday with the final day of competition set for Sunday.

UCF will be joined by UAB, Bethune-Cookman, Coastal Carolina, Florida Gulf Coast, Georgia Southern, Indiana, Jacksonville, North Florida, Samford, Troy and USC Upstate.

"This tournament is another training tool. We expect the ladies to compete hard and leave everything on the court," said head coach Stephanie Nickitas. "We are seeing improvement every day in practice, and every couple of weeks we play a tournament so they can go out and try and implement these things in pressure situations."
