Troy (2-5), who hadn’t played in nearly two weeks, dropped the double point to North Florida (3-0), but rebounded quickly in singles play.
The Trojans cruised to straight set wins at No. 3 then No. 2 to take the lead. Anja Cosovic continued her good play this spring with a 6-4, 6-0 win at No. 3. Newcomer Trang Huynh then won by the same 6-4, 6-0 score at No. 2.
The Ospreys tied the match shortly with a straight set win at No. 4. The remaining three matches left on the courts were tight at the time, and could’ve gone either way.
North Florida broke the tie with a 7-5, 7-5 win at No. 1 singles before clinching things with a 7-6 (4), 6-4 win at No. 6. The Ospreys added a three-set win at No. 5 for the final score.
Complete results are below.
The Trojans return to the courts this weekend when they travel to take on Nicholls State on Saturday and New Orleans on Sunday.
