We competed with them better
The Eastern Florida State College sophomore tennis player improved to 4-0 at No. 3 singles on Friday in what turned out to be an 8-1 loss to host St. Petersburg College in a Florida College System Activities Association/NJCAA Region 8 match.
For the second straight week, Sella defeated St. Petersburg’s Brianna Miah, this time by scores of 6-1, 6-1. In two matches against Miah this season, Sella has dropped just five games.
“She’s real consistent,” Titans coach Wally Norwich said of Sella. “She’s got a big forehand and a big serve. She hit her serve really well today.”
Eastern Florida’s Danyelle Copeland was leading her match at No. 4 singles when she had to retire because of an injury.
Another tough match came in doubles where Copeland and Hope Fellows lost 9-7.
The loss dropped the Titans to 1-3 on the season.
“We competed with them better,” Norwich said. “All of the matches were tougher, were better, but we didn’t do it.”
Eastern Florida concludes its road trip today when it plays State College of Florida Manatee-Sarasota in a match scheduled to begin at 11 a.m.
