The Lady Bucs earned their lone point when No. 92 Yevgeniya Stupak defeated Julie Mazinova, 6-1, 4-6, 11-9 in the No. 1 position.

 

"The girls were just extremely tierd. It's just a shame that the girls weren't able to arrive earlier to prepare for the match. Unfortunately we lost the match because we had some matches rescheduled last minute and our travel plans had to be changed. The girls fought really hard, they were just fatigued. We have four weeks until its conference tournament time and we're ready to start working on that," said head coach Steve Brooks.

 

The Lady Bucs will hit the road again on March 28 and March 29 as they travel to Jacksonville, Fla. to face Jacksonville and North Florida. The match against Jacksonville is set to begin at 2 p.m.
