ORLANDO, FLA. – The Furman women's tennis team will compete in the UCF Invitational this weekend at the UCF Tennis Complex in Orlando, Fla.

The tournament will feature teams from UCF, North Florida, and Florida International, in addition to the Paladins.

Following the event this weekend, the Paladins will kick off the 2014 dual-match slate at South Carolina on January 28 at 4 p.m.

Furman returns five players from last season's team that posted a 14-9 overall record and an 8-2 mark in Southern Conference play.  Head coach Debbie Southern, who is in her 30th season at the helm of the Paladin program, guided the team to the semifinals of the league tournament last spring. 

Juniors Alex Moreno-Kaste and Kelly Sullivan and seniors Katherine Oudin and Margaret Boyette return after being named to the All-SoCon Team in 2012.
