Bulls edge the Knights
After being named Big East player of the week, No. 82 ranked Irene Rehberger helped the USF (6-10) women’s tennis team defeat the UCF (8-8) Knights 4-3 Wednesday at the USF Varsity Tennis courts.
In close battle, Rehberger and Iciri Rai won the doubles point for USF with a 9-7 triumph after the schools split both matches. Rehberger then went on to win her singles match against UCF’s Jenny Frisell 6-0 and 6-4, improving her record to 9-1 on the season.
USF coach Agustin Moreno said he was happy to see his team win a close match against a rival school.
“We had to fight hard to get the win today,” Moreno said. “We did not play our best tennis, but we scrapped and were able to come away with a big win.”
After taking the doubles point, the Bulls lost three of the first five singles matches. However, Natalia Guevara won her match 3-6, 6-4 over UCF’s Alexis Rodriguez in the No. 4 singles position to give USF the victory.
“Natalia played in a great match with some really tight points,” Moreno said. “She was excellent when she had to be and really pulled it out for us.”
The 65th-ranked Bulls will host Boston University (9-4) on April 4 in their final home match of the regular season.
