SPARTANBURG, S.C. - The USC Upstate women's tennis team split a pair of three-set singles matches on Tuesday against Campbell to wrap up its 2010 season. However, the Spartans needed to win both to take the match, as Campbell posted a 4-3 win at the USC Upstate Tennis Complex to finish in a tie for fourth in the Atlantic Sun Conference with Upstate.

The Spartans (12-5 overall, 6-4 A-Sun) finished the campaign as sophomore Ana-Sofia Camberos posted a 6-3, 3-6, 6-3 win at No. 6 to wrap up the match. Freshman Francisca Valderrama capped off her rookie campaign with a 7-5, 6-1 win over Lisa Sutton at No. 1 to finish her A-Sun year at 6-4.

Senior Carolina Bello, after being honored earlier in the day for Senior Day, capped her career in fine fashion, as she teamed with Camberos to post an 8-2 win over Blanca Saenz and Anais Gomar at No. 3 doubles and followed that with a 7-6 (2), 6-4 win over Cristina Garcia at No. 3 singles.

However, the Camels (12-8 overall, 6-4 A-Sun) were able to take the doubles point with a win at No. 2 and a close 9-7 win at No. 1. They followed with wins at No. 4, No. 5 and clinched the match with a two-set win at No. 2, helping the Camels finish in a tie for fourth with the Spartans.

Upstate wraps up its third year of Division I play by posting a 12-5 record and a 6-4 mark in the A-Sun, marking the team's sixth straight winning season and conference winning season.
