Short-Handed Lady Tigers Fall at UCF
March 25, 2007
ORLANDO, Fla. - With just four healthy players, the University of Memphis women's tennis team suffered a 7-0 loss to UCF, Sunday, to wrap up a four-match swing through Florida. Memphis was without freshmen Amanda Brown, Dara Toulch and Marjorie Ondeck in the singles line-up and the absences meant that Ekin Zafir moved up to No. 1 singles, Christina Wieser to No. 2 singles, Flavia Russo to No. 3 and Katie-Mary Outhwaite moved up to No. 4.
The loss drops the Lady Tigers to 1-12 on the season and 0-5 in Conference USA play. The Lady Tigers will close out the regular season road swing at Arkansas State, Thursday, and at Southern Illinois on Apr. 2nd.
