Liberty will take its unbeaten record on the road when it squares off with FGCU and South Florida on the road, this weekend.

The Lady Flames (6-0) will first take on the FGCU Eagles (0-2) on Friday morning at 10 a.m. the FGCU Tennis Complex. Liberty will wrap up its time in the Sunshine State with a road contest versus the South Florida Bulls, Sunday at noon at the USF Varsity Tennis Courts.

Liberty is 0-2 all-time against FGCU, with both setbacks coming in 2019. The Lady Flames and USF met on March 14, 2017, for the first and only time, with the Bulls emerging victorious by a 7-0 score.
