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.
