Women's Tennis - Wed, Apr. 6, 2016
The formula works, do not mess with it. Georgetown College women's tennis coach adjusted the doubles pairings this spring to have two sophomores, two seniors and two freshmen playing together. Over the past several weeks it has been at least two of those combinations coming up with big wins in doubles to help the Tigers off to a fast start.
It continued Tuesday at nemesis Campbellsville University – both teams receiving votes in the coaches' poll. The visiting Tigers (14-5, 5-0) won 8-3 in the second and third spots of doubles and never looked back.
"We took care of business today," said GC coach Jessica Cunningham. "Campbellsville has been that team we've been on the verge of defeating off and on, but one bounce this way or that has kept it from happening. We stayed focused today."
Georgetown dropped the top doubles spot and the second spot in singles, but rolled 7-2 in Campbellsville.
Every match was a straight set win. Shae Henry, Kaelin Roberts and Emily Novak won in singles to sow-up the win 5-2. Natalie Fiepke and Kelly Swanson put the icing on the cake.
Seniors Swanson and Roberts as well as freshmen Amanda Moore and Abigail Kennedy to it rolling with 8-3 wins in doubles.
"Usually I mix in experience with youthfulness at the doubles pairs," Cunningham said. "But I've found that these pairs work. I'm sticking with it."
Georgetown returns to action 3 pm Thursday hosting Cumberland University on Senior Day.
