Orlando, Fla. ( - UCF secured the doubles point but the women's tennis team was unable to get past No. 64 North Florida in a 5-2 loss Wednesday at the UCF Tennis Complex. The Knights' record fell to 9-4 for the 2010 season as they will start preparing for a trip to the state of Texas next weekend.

The Black and Gold opened the afternoon against the Ospreys (15-1) by posting victories at the No. 1 and No. 3 doubles spots for the early 1-0 lead. Jenny Frisell partnered with Alexis Rodriguez at the top position and took down Aline Berkenbrock and Raguel Castro, 8-5. Over at No. 3, Taylor Dubins and Andrea Yacaman cruised past Lauren Holton and Victoria Krook, 8-2.

Rodriguez then went into the singles portion of the day and had little trouble in her match at No. 2, giving up just three games in a 6-1, 6-2 triumph over Castro. North Florida would eventually take a 3-2 lead before the No. 5 and No. 6 matches went into a third set, where the Ospreys were able to hang on to win both contests for the overall 5-2 win.

With the four-match homestand completed, the Knights now look ahead to traveling to Texas to face UTEP April 3 and SMU April 4. Both matches will be played in Dallas.
