Georgetown College women's tennis continues to roll on this spring with a blanking of a second straight opponent. The Tigers (3-0) made quick work over Union College Wednesday afternoon. A couple of matches had some exciting moments, but in the end it was all GC.
In doubles, freshman Madelyn Kauffman and sophomore Amanda Moore held off Ljiljana Pajcin and Erika Broady for a 9-7 win. Juniors Natalie Fiepke and Shae Henry wasted no time and dropped no games in an 8-0 victory over Kacie Dotson and Brittany Lamb.
Coach Jessica Cunningham then tested some of her youthful bunch in singles.

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.
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.
