Tampa, FL - The Florida Atlantic University women’s tennis players got on the court for the first time during the 2012-13 season on the first day of the Intercollegiate Tennis Association Southeast Regional at USF in Tampa. The Owls suffered three first-round setbacks in singles competition.
Sophomore Catalina Ene lost in straight sets to University of Georgia’s Kate Fuller, the nation’s 64th-ranked singles player.
“I am disappointed in our results today. Our players were battling some nerves with this being our first tournament of the year,” said Marcy Hora-Cava, FAU’s head women’s tennis coach. “We have some talented athletes and it’s just a matter of them believing that they can compete with the best of the best. Fortunately, tomorrow is a new day.”
Tournament action will continue through Monday, October 22.
