Women's Tennis - Wed, Apr. 10, 2013
The Tigers' women's tennis team finished off its third match in four days with a quick 9-0 win over Shawnee State Monday in Georgetown.
GC is making a statement this season in the Mid-South Conference. The team has lost only two conference matches, the second was the first match in the four-day time frame to No. 16 Cumberland University. The only other MSC loss was to No. 5 Lindsey Wilson College.
"I couldn't be more proud of this team," said GC coach Jessica Cunningham. "They are coming together and playing hard. It can be easy in a sport such as this to get sucked into the individual aspect, but it's awesome to watch how this team really comes together for each other and you can see the team element."
Georgetown, which is receiving votes in the national poll, only dropped a handful of games to the Bears and won each game in straight sets.
"I think that speaks to the focus this team has," Cunningham said. "Playing two top opponents, and splitting those results, could have been easy to come into Monday's matches and not play well. Each player took care of business and did what we should do in that match."
Georgetown returns to action 3 pm Thursday against another solid conference opponent as No. 19 Campbellsville University comes to town.
