Women's Tennis Takes on FIU Thursday
GREENSBORO, N.C.- The UNCG women’s tennis team will look to wrap up its spring break trip with a victory as they head to Miami, Fla. to take on Florida International Thursday at noon.
The Spartans fought hard against Stetson earlier this week, but fell 4-3 to the Hatters.
UNCG managed to come back from a 2-0 deficit, but weren’t able to overcome the Hatters and fell to 3-5 on the season.
Yasmin Franco (Largo, Fla./ Indian Rocks Christian) and Dilara Yurtkuran (Istanbul, Turkey/Gunes Koleii) have won two straight after winning at Stetson 8-5 at No. 2 doubles. The duo took down Maya Blue Stauffer-MacDowell and Cari Berry for UNCG’s sole doubles win of the match.
Both Franco and Amy Ellis (Cheshire, Great Britain/ Newcastle Under Lyme School) hold 4-3 records in singles for UNCG.
Florida International is 4-3 on the year and most recently defeated Loyola Marymount 4-3 in Los Angeles, Calif. The Panthers took down fellow SoCon opponent Davidson 6-1 earlier this season.
