Spartans roll past Wofford, 7-0
GREENSBORO, N.C. – Alejandra Guerra won her 11th straight singles match and Lucy Dougherty won for the 11th time in her last 12 matches as UNC Greensboro rolled past Wofford, 7-0, in Southern Conference women's tennis action.
Lucy Dougherty is a perfect 6-0 in league play and 16-8 on the
season after shutting out Betsey Hauer on Saturday. She has won 11
of her last 12 matches.
Both played perfect singles matches, winning by identical 6-0, 6-0 scores, as the Spartans moved to 10-5 on the year and 5-1 in league play.
Guerra, ranked No. 82 in the country and the reigning Southern Conference Player of the Year, moved to 16-0 in her career against conference foes with an easy win over Cayley Wetzig to set the stage for her showdown on Sunday with Furman's Laura Gioia. Gioia is ranked No. 15 in the nation in this past week's ITA rankings. Guerra defeated Gioia in last year's meeting.
UNCG also got three-set singles wins by Valerie Behr, Arielle VonStrolley and Jessica Eblen, along with a retirement win by Britney Cloer, to complete the victory.
UNCG will host Furman, winner of 94 straight SoCon regular season matches, beginning at 10:30 am Sunday.
