The USF women’s tennis team opens its season in Gainesville tonight at the Gator Invitational.
The team features two seniors and includes five new players. Seniors Talia Romero and Gina Craig head a group of four players returning from a team that posted a 10-12 record last year en route to a loss to DePaul in the consolation round of the Conference USA tournament.
“I don’t think (having five new players) will make a difference to the team,” coach Gigi Fernandez said. “They are all very good players, and their talent is more than enough to make sure being new to the team does not make a difference.”
JV cross country gets a chance to stretch its legs
The USF junior varsity cross country team travels to Orlando Saturday to compete in its second meet of the season. The varsity team will not compete at the Disney XC Classic, instead they will rest for the Penn State National next weekend.
The meet will serve as a rare opportunity for coaches to see the team in a competitive state.
“We are excited for them,” said coach Greg Thiel. “They train as hard as anyone, but you can only do so much in practice. Here we will get to see them in a competitive nature and learn how they can handle it.”
It will be the only meet of the season in which the varsity team will not be in action. The Penn State National will be the final regular season meet for the team before the Conference USA championships in Tampa on Nov. 1.

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 […]
