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.

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.
