Junior Helene Nordgreen led the Falcons with two game wins.

Nordgreen fell 6-0, 6-2 to Agnese Rozite of Florida Southern in the No. 1 singles’ match.

Senior Calli Robinson, senior Kodi Bobo and McGucken were the only other Falcons to pick up game wins in singles’ matches.

Robinson fell to Sabine Goge of Florida Southern in the No. 2 singles’ match 6-0, 6-1. Bobo lost the No. 4 singles’ match 6-1, 6-0 and McGucken fell in the No. 5 singles’ match 6-1, 6-0.
