Lorbergs Makes UCF Tennis History

Lorbergs Makes UCF Tennis History

Producing one of the best seasons in UCF history, UCF women’s tennis senior Genevieve Lorbergs was voted on to the All-Conference USA First Team in singles, the league office announced Monday. Lorbergs became the first Knight since UCF’s inaugural season in the league in 2005-06 to earn a spot on the first team for her work on the singles court.

UCF’s last players to receive first-team honors in singles were Pamela Fernandez and Kristina Lohmos, who were named to the All-Atlantic Sun First Team in 2005.

Completing her senior season with a 22-13 overall singles record, Lorbergs went 16-5 at the No. 1 position and posted five victories over ranked opponents. That included wins over No. 40 Britney Sanders of Notre Dame, two triumphs over No. 68 Lauren Kline from Furman, a victory against No. 78 Ecaterina Vasenina of USF and a dominant performance vs. No. 81 Matea Cutura of DePaul.

A native of Australia, Lorbergs ended her career by going 8-1 in her final nine matches. Her 22 singles wins in 2012-13 rank ninth in the UCF single-season record book.

Lorbergs delivered an all-around game as well, as she teamed up with Josephine Haraldson for 20 doubles victories, which were just one shy of tying the single-season school mark.
