ORLANDO, Fla. (UCFAthletics.com) - After a successful summer of workouts as well as an intense preseason, the UCF women's tennis team finally kicked off the 2011 fall season Friday at the UCF Tennis Complex as it hosts the three-day UCF Quad Tournament. The Knights battled Miami and Stetson in doubles as well as South Florida on the singles courts on day one.

Facing off with a Miami squad that finished No. 7 in the country last year, the Hurricanes were able to pick up two doubles wins against the Knights. However the duo of Taylor Dubins and Jenna Doerfler topped Stetson's Rachel Luke and Jen Miller, 8-1, for UCF's first victory of the fall.

Another big test awaited the Black and Gold in singles play where it faced off with No. 41 USF, and UCF walked away with a successful 4-2 record against the Bulls. Three Knights boasted straight-set victories as Alexis Rodriguez, Courtney Griffith and Dubins combined to give up just 11 games in the three wins.

Closing out the afternoon, Genevieve Lorbergs fought back from a one-set deficit to defeat Lucie Rey, 4-6, 6-2, 6-1.

Action at the UCF Quad Tournament continues Saturday at the UCF Tennis Complex, and admission for the entire weekend is free.
