ORLANDO, Fla. (UCFAthletics.com) - The UCF women's tennis team will conclude its four-match homestand Wednesday when it takes on Marquette at 2 p.m. at the UCF Tennis Complex.

Last week the Knights (5-6) came out on top in a close match against Miami University. Freshman Josephine Haraldson clinched the 4-3 victory over the RedHawks in her three-set match. At the No. 5 singles spot, Haraldson split the first two sets against Nimisha Mohan, 6-4, 3-6, but came back in the third-set to collect the win, 7-6.

Marquette is currently 9-4 on the season collecting wins over Iowa, Seton Hall and Rutgers. The last time these two teams met on the court was in the 2006-07 season, when the Knights walked away with a 4-3 win.

UCF will take a short trip to North Carolina next weekend when they take on East Carolina March 26 and UNC-Wilmington March 27.
