MELBOURNE, Fla.-The Panthers fell 9-0 in women’s tennis action against the Division I University of Delaware today at the Fee Avenue courts.

Once again, the injury plagued Tech was unable to field an entire team with their #1 player Michaela Horvathova (Bratislava, Slovakia) , #3 Nicole David
(Fort Pierce, Fla.) and #5 Mandy Rohrbach (Jefferson City, Mo.) all out for the match. Panther newcomers sophomore Andrea Alfonso (Escazu, Costa Rica ) and

Amanda Campbell. Partners Alfonso and Hernandez notched their first points as a pair losing 8-2 to experienced tennis players’ Alexa Dragonette and
