Women's Tennis - Mon, Apr. 18, 2016

Georgetown College women's tennis notched its seventh shutout of the spring season and ninth overall Saturday at Indiana University Southeast.

The Tigers (17-8) were just a win above .500 when it rolled off 12 wins in the past 15 matches with the three losses coming to teams ranked in the Top 15 – two in the Top 5.

"We've been playing exceptional tennis right now," said GC coach Jessica Cunningham. "I'm very proud of the way we battle and then take care of business when we are supposed to. I like what I'm seeing out of this group."

Against the Grenadiers, Georgetown won each match in straight sets. The team lost no more than six games in any match with most just losing four or less.

Doubles got it off to a good start as Amanda More and Abigail Kennedy did not drop a game at the three spot. Kelly Swanson and Kaelin Roberts won 8-4 and Shae Henry and Natalie Fiepke won 8-2.

Henry rolled Donna Frank 6-1, 6-1 for a 4-0 standing. Swanson finished her match 6-1, 6-2 and it was all just elementary from there.

Roberts won 6-2, 6-4 at the two spot, she's been playing three most this season. Emily Novak moved up to three for a 6-2, 6-2 win. Fiepke won 6-1, 6-2 at the five spot and Alyssa Kennedy finished it off 6-1, 7-5.

"We have great flexibility in our line-up," Cunningham said. "I moved a couple of people around and let others have a day off in some spots and we didn't miss a beat. That's a sign of a solid team."

Georgetown returns to action Thursday in Mid-South Conference tournament action. The postseason is being played in Bowling Green, Ky.
