ORLANDO, Fla. ( - After defeating UAB in the opening round, the No. 75 UCF women's tennis team could not get past No. 66 Rice in a 4-0 loss Friday in the Conference USA Championship quarterfinals at the Lake Cane Tennis Center. It would be the final match of the 2010-11 season as the Knights finished with a 12-8 overall record.

The Owls (14-9) jumped out to a 1-0 lead as they collected two doubles matches, despite a strong effort to stay alive from the No. 1 duo of redshirt freshman Genevieve Lorbergs and freshman Courtney Griffith after being down 6-1. In the end, Lorbergs and Griffith would lose the match to Rebekka Hanle and Ana Guzman, 8-4.

In singles, freshman Josephine Haraldson would earn the first set at the No. 5 spot, 7-6, after making an impressive comeback from 0-5. However, Haraldson's match would not be finished as the overall match was already decided.

"Despite the result of the match today, we have been competing really well the last few matches," said head coach, Stephanie Nickitas. "That's how you want to end the season."

Haraldson led the Knights in both dual-match and fall tournament singles victories, combining for a total of 19 wins. Senior Jenny Frisell ended her career with the Knights with a 7-5 singles record on the dual-match season and amassed eight doubles victories with partner Alexis Rodriguez.
