BREVARD COUNTY, FLORIDA – Eastern Florida’s women’s tennis team opened its season with a 6-3 loss to Florida State College Jacksonville on Friday but head coach Wally Norwich was upbeat.

“It was our first match of the season,” said first-year coach Norwich. “We’ll take the positives from today and build on them and work to improve in the areas where we need to improve.

“The players have come a long way since the fall and we are optimistic about what lies ahead.”

Andrews’ match did not go the three full sets since Jacksonville, also playing its first match of the season, had already sewn up the victory.

In other doubles matches Sella and freshman Linn Sorman fell 9-7 at No. 1 and Andrews and classmate Nicole Trio lost 8-2 at No. 3.
