FGCU Women's Tennis Set to Host FAU on Friday
Wednesday, February 03, 2010

FORT MYERS, Fla. – The FGCU women’s tennis team will look to even its record when they host Florida Atlantic on Friday afternoon at the FGCU Tennis Complex. The dual match is set to begin at 2:30 p.m.

The Blue and Green (1-2) opened the 2010 dual match season two weekends ago, dropping close matches to Troy and Central Florida before sweeping Bethune-Cookman 7-0. Senior Priscillia Villemond (Les Bordes, France) and junior Jessica Sweeting (Freeport, Bahamas) each recorded perfect 3-0 singles records to start the season. Sweeting, a transfer from USF, earned A-Sun player of the week honors for her effort.

The Eagles are 0-4 all-time against the Owls (2-2), including a 5-2 loss in Boca Raton last season. The other three losses came in 2002-04, when FGCU was a member of Division II.

The dual match is scheduled for a 2:30 p.m. start at the FGCU Tennis Complex. Admission is free to the public.
