Tallahassee, FL – Senior Anca Dumitrescu (Bucharest, Romania/VCU) was selected to participate in the 2004 NCAA Division I Women’s Tennis Individual Championships that begin May 24, 2004 in Athens, GA.
Dumitrescu won 16 matches during the 2004 campaign, starring at the number one position for the Seminoles. The Bucharest, Romania native upset seventh-ranked Amanda Johnson from the Duke Blue Devils.
Dumitrescu was one of the members of the FSU senior class that became the glue for a talented lineup that climbed its way from a season-opening No. 54 to its current position of No. 27. Dumitrescu and fellow classmate Christina Denny (Canton, Ohio/Bradenton Academy) had career seasons in singles and doubles, with Dumitrescu bettering her previous single season win mark of 14 dual match wins and 12 doubles victories to 16 and 14 with at least one more match remaining in the season.
The 2004 season was a stellar campaign for the Seminoles, which included an upset of No. 9 UNC and narrow 4-3 losses to No. 3 Duke and No. 21 Clemson, the 2004 ACC Women’s Tennis Champion. Moldovan demolished her competition, picking up 24 consecutive victories, setting school records and etching her name atop the FSU singles win list.
The No. 27 Florida State women’s tennis squad learned Wednesday, May 5, 2004, that it will face Marshall in Nashville, TN in the first round of the 2004 NCAA Division I Women’s Tennis Tournament. The Seminoles will square off against the Thundering Herd next weekend, May 14-16, when the tourney kicks off at host school Vanderbilt University. FSU (17-7) is a number two seed in the bracket while Marshall (22-4) is a three seed.
