TAMPA - Katie Vasenina and Danielle Mills posted singles wins in USF's lone match at ITA Kickoff Weekend on Sunday.
The Bulls' opening national indoor qualifying match against Washington was originally scheduled for Saturday but didn't resume until Sunday because of rain at Los Angeles Tennis Center. Washington eventually advanced to the championship with a 4-2 victory over USF.
The Bulls were in the midst of warming up for a consolation match against San Diego when rain reappeared at UCLA. The match was canceled and will not be made up.
USF is back on the court in Gainesville to take on No. 1 Florida before the Bulls host Florida State on Saturday, Feb. 2 at the USF Varsity Courts. Admission is free.
