Rehberger leads USF into UCF showdown
After dropping her first match of the season, No. 1 singles player Irene Rehberger enters today having won eight consecutive matches since March 1. The Bulls host UCF at 2 p.m. at the USF Varsity Tennis Courts.
Rehberger (8-1), who transferred to USF this season from Spain, is ranked No. 82 in the country in singles. She dropped her opening match at Texas A&M on Feb. 27, but since then coach Agustin Moreno said she’s improved her game.
“(Rehberger) is one of the top players in the country,” Moreno said. “Even though she got off to a late start this season, she’ll likely play in the NCAA singles championship tournament.”
The Bulls’ (5-10) season-high three-match win streak came to an end Saturday against Kentucky, before dropping another match to South Carolina. UCF (8-7) enters the match having lost three in a row.
“It is going to be a tough match because (UCF) is a very good team,” Moreno said. “We are set to take them on though.”
The No. 73 Knights are led by freshmen Andrea Yacaman and Christy Core, who are 18-12 and 17-13 in dual matches, respectively.
The Bulls are 4-3 on a stretch of nine straight home matches. They face Boston University on April 4 before heading to Florida International on April 11. The Big East Conference tournament begins April 15.

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 […]
