Women’s tennis team takes care of UNI
The USF women?s tennis team finished last week with a strong win Friday against the University of Northern Iowa, 5-2.
Though the players were tired after several away matches, they seemed excited to play on their home court again. The excitement came through with most of them winning their singles matches.
Patricia Kolendo was back in full swing Friday after being sick. She won her singles match vs. Iowa?s Kelly Maifield, 6-1, 6-0.
Jennifer Sinclair received her points after an exhausting second-set tiebreaker with UNI?s Kristina Bothova, 3-6,7-6,6-2.
USF?s No. 1 player, Natalie Schwartz, came back after missing last week?s match against No. 37 Kansas due to sickness. Schwartz won her match against Iowa?s Kylene Wong, 7-6, 7-6.
?I feel much better,? Schwartz said. ?I feel great, especially after a win over a tough opponent. She got to everything.?
Said USF coach Sherry Bedingfield, ?I was very pleased with the way Natalie played today. This was a good match for her to come to.?
Since the tennis ?March Madness? has begun, involving about 13 matches within one month, the Bulls have succeeded most often on their own turf.
USF will play New Mexico State (13-1) today at 2 p.m. New Mexico State, last ranked No. 53, earned its last win against rival New Mexico.

Bulls battle with ECU in OT win
Coach Brian Gregory said Tuesday the Bulls didn’t play complete, 40-minute games in their two losses last week. It’s debatable if they did Wednesday night against East Carolina (11-18, 5-11) at the Yuengling Center, but it was more than enough to put up a 73-68 overtime win. “It’s funny. There were stretches where we played […]
