Women’s tennis drops two over weekend
It was a tough weekend for the No. 30 USF women’s tennis team, as it dropped two critical matches – a 4-3 loss to Big East foe Louisville on Friday and a 6-1 loss to the Kentucky Wildcats on Sunday.
The Bulls fell to 7-4 on the season, and 1-2 in the Big East.
Cardinals head coach Mark Beckham was “proud of his team,” since Louisville had beaten “a quality team” like the Bulls.
The series between the Cardinals and Bulls could have gone either way, as four of the six singles matches went to a third set, but two things happened that turned the series over to the Cardinals.
Louisville won the doubles point by taking two of three matches, and took an early lead at home. Liz Cruz’s dramatic loss to Louisville’s Bianca Gorbea 3-6, 6-2, 6-7 (7-2) made the difference in the whole series.
In Sunday’s series against the Wildcats – who are undefeated in Lexington – USF was defeated by a powerful opponent after an emotional series, similar to last weekend’s loss against Notre Dame after defeating Ohio State.
The Bulls will put an end to their season-long 14-game road trip next Wednesday against UCF in Orlando. Then USF returns to face Clemson in its first home series of the season – more than two months after its first match.

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 […]
