GAINESVILLE, Fla. (UCFAthletics.com) - Facing some of the top competition in the Southeast, the UCF women's tennis team wrapped up day one at the 2011 USTA/ITA Southeast Regional Women's Tennis Championships Friday. The event is being held at the Ring Tennis Complex in Gainesville, Fla., this weekend.

Four Knights were a part of the field of 64 in the main singles draw but were unable to advance, including a pair of matches against nationally-ranked opponents. Alexis Rodriguez, Jenna Doerfler, Genevieve Lorbergs and Courtney Griffith will now look ahead to the consolation bracket which begins Saturday.

In doubles play, Taylor Dubins and Andrea Yacaman reached the second round thanks to an 8-3 victory over Karyn Guttormsen and Sarah McLean of FIU, and Rodriguez partnered with Lorbergs to shutout Jen Evans and Gyanna Mandic of Florida Gulf Coast, 8-0. However the UCF doubles teams were bounced in the next round.

The Knights will resume action in Gainesville with day two Saturday.
