Georgetown College women's tennis picked up its first spring and conference win this past weekend, hosting Shawnee State University. The weather forced the Tigers spring home-opener at The Lexington Tennis Club, but it was a successful 6-2 victory none the less.
"Top to bottom we played so well today," said GC coach Jessica Cunningham. "We are excited to get our first conference win of the season."
The Tigers won two of the three doubles matches with the one loss coming at 8-6 in the No. 3 spot. Emily Krick, Natalie Hill and Jacqueline Otis cruised to easy straight set wins in their singles matches - (6-3, 6-3; 6-1, 6-0; 6-0, 6-0 respectively).
SSU's Ashley Fisher need three sets to beat Lauren Yates 4-6, 7-6, 1-0. Mackenzie Hatfield rallied from one set down to beat Crystal Carpenter 4-6, 6-2, 1-0 and Keira Lopez was on the way back against Shelby Wulfekamp when the match was called because of time.
"It was a really good day for Georgetown women's tennis," Cunningham said. "We had to deal with the adjustment of not being on our home courts as we had thought. Each player handled the situation well, and we did what we needed to do to take a conference victory.
"Now we have to take that energy and go and play one of the toughest teams in the nation that just happens to be in our conference."
Both the men's and women's teams will be back in action Wednesday at conference powerhouse Lindsey Wilson.
