LAKELAND, Fla. -- Barry University junior Olivia Matuszak (Hamburg, Germany) took the runner-up trophy at the United States Tennis Association/Intercollegiate Tennis Association South Region Championships Sunday in the fall season's opening event.

Matuszak, a No. 9 seed, lost in the championship, 6-4, 6-0, to Florida Tech's Kristina Huba, a No. 5 seed.

Matuszak went 5-1 in the tournament. She is coming off a 13-3 sophomore spring season in which she climbed to as high as No. 38 in the ITA rankings. Matuszak did not compete in last year's fall individual season.
