DELAND, Fla. (UCFAthletics.com) - For the 20th-straight year, the UCF women's tennis team won at least 10 matches as the Knights added a 4-3 victory at Stetson Saturday. The win improved UCF's record to 10-7 on the year with two regular-season matches left, while the Hatters dropped to 16-5.

The home team would jump out to a 1-0 lead by taking two of three doubles matches from the Knights, as UCF earned a win at the No. 2 position when Alexis Rodriguez and Jenny Frisell topped Sierra Sullivan and MayaBlue Stauffer-MacDowell, 8-4.

However the Knights stormed back in singles. After Rodriguez won her match at No. 2 by default, Frisell cruised to a 6-0, 6-2 triumph at No. 1 against Carolina de los Santos. Stetson would claim a victory at No. 4 before Genevieve Lorbergs picked up a straight-set victory at No. 3 against Shannon Gunning, 6-4, 6-0.

Holding a 3-2 overall advantage, Allison Hodges wrapped up the UCF win by getting past Jen Miller at No. 6, 6-1, 7-5.

UCF resumes its four-match road trip next weekend when it travels to FIU April 16 and FAU April 17.

UCF will be hosting the C-USA Women's Tennis Championship April 21-24 at the Lake Cane Tennis Center in Orlando, and admission will be free for all fans.
