Women's Tennis - Wed, Mar. 30, 2016

Impressive victories might be too slight of a phrase for the wins Georgetown College women's tennis is posting over the past two-plus weeks. The Tigers, which are receiving votes in the coaches' poll, improved to 8-4 overall and 3-0 in Mid-South Conference action with another dominate performance Saturday. They handed the visiting University of Pikeville Bears an 8-1 setback, meaning the team has dropped only one match in league play.

Amanda Moore and Abigail Kennedy rolled to a bagel win over Haley Justice and Bryanna Schroers, while Kelly Swanson and Kaelin Roberts won 8-1 over Thais Bezerra and Cailee Marcum. Natalie Fiepke and Shae Henry had the toughest test in doubles, winning 8-2 over Macarena Acuna and Mounia Sami.

"When you can start a match by clean sweeping the doubles portion, you put yourself way ahead of the game," said GC coach Jessica Cunningham. "We have been putting ourselves in the driver's seat a lot, which makes singles much easier. All you need to win there is two matches. Now we've been taking care of business there too, which is what I want, but when you win doubles you have a lot better chance of taking the overall match."

GC took five of the six singles matches as Henry battled top-seeded and undefeated Acuna in a 7-5, 6-1 setback. Moore also had a tough match, but won over Sami 6-0, 7-6. Roberts rolled 6-3, 6-3. Emily Novek took care of business at the four spot, 6-0, 6-0. Alyssa Kennedy cruised to a 6-3, 6-2 win and Katie Eden blanked Schoers in a 6-0, 6-0 win to finish the match.

Georgetown returns to action 3:30 pm Tuesday hosting University of the Cumberlands.
