No. 4 Duke Too Much For Terrapins

April 5, 2003

DURHAM, N.C. - The University of Maryland women's tennis team dropped to 8-8 overall and 0-4 in ACC play with a 7-0 loss to host No. 4 Duke on Saturday afternoon at the Sheffield Indoor Tennis Center.

For the first time this year, the Terrapins were not able to notch a point. Duke moves to 19-2, 4-0 in ACC play.

Duke claimed the doubles point for a 1-0 lead. Freshman Ramona But (Timisoara, Romania) and senior Marta Jedrzejak (Sieradz, Poland) made their match competitive, losing to Duke's Hillary Adams and Kelly McCain, 8-5.

From there, the Terps dropped five singles matches in straight sets and forfeited the No. 6 match. The team continues to play with only five players due to an injury to freshman Andreea Fusea (Bucharest, Romania).

The Terps face No. 11 North Carolina in Chapel Hill, N.C., Sunday at 2 p.m.
