ORLANDO, Fla. - The University of Notre Dame women's tennis team opened its final regular season road trip of 2013 with a 6-1 win Saturday over Central Florida at the UCF Tennis Complex. The meeting was the first all-time between the schools.

Notre Dame (13-8) took two of three doubles decisions to claim the match's first point. The No. 60 ranked tandem of Chrissie McGaffigan and Jennifer Kellner cruised to an 8-2 victory at the first doubles court. No. 62 Julie Sabacinski and Britney Sanders turned in a similar 8-2 performance over Caroline Eberhart and Courtney Griffith at the No. 2 court to earn the doubles win for the Irish.
