At #2 Singles, Joanne Gao also showed that Cardinal fight before falling by the score of 6-1, 6-4. 

"Really proud of the fight we showed today in Daytona Beach" said Head Coach Ryan Ruzziconi. "That team fight and determination is always the first step in moving a program forward. It's the attitude we want daily in our tennis program, and this team is establishing that against some really good competition here in Florida."
