Orlando, Fla. (UCFAthletics.com) - UCF's best start since 1998-99 continued Wednesday when the women's tennis team knocked off New Mexico, 7-0. The win enabled the Knights to stretch their record to 9-2 while the Lobos dropped to 1-12.

The 9-2 record by the Black and Gold is its best since it claimed a 12-2 mark in 1998-99.

Doubles opened up the afternoon and the Knights grabbed victories in two of the three matches to own an early 1-0 lead. Senior Katie Orletsky paired up with sophomore Christy Core at No. 2 and the duo got past Michaela Oldani and Amy Shipperd, 8-5. And over at No. 3, sophomores Andrea Yacaman and Taylor Dubins cruised by Kristin Eggleston and Manumea Durie, 8-3.

UCF would then go on to post straight-set victories in five of six singles matches for the overall shutout of New Mexico. Orletsky, Dubins, No. 105 Jenny Frisell, Alexis Rodriguez and Jenna Doerfler all needed just two sets for their respective wins, while freshman Allison Hodges split her first two sets before defeating Kristin Eggleston in a third-set super tie-breaker, 6-4, 5-7, 1-0(11-9).

The Knights will now stay at home when they welcome Akron to town Friday at 4 p.m.
