ORLANDO, Fla. (SNO) — The University of Charleston Golden Eagle women’s tennis team rebounded in a big way following their first loss of the 2018-19 season by sweeping University of Sioux Falls (S.D.) in their fourth straight day of matches during Spring Break in Orlando.

UC got 6-0 wins from Kristine Gegeshidze and Katie Swann at No. 2 doubles and Regina Lopez-Saucedo and Mathilde Simon at No. 3 doubles to take the doubles point heading into singles play.

After quick wins from Lopez-Saucedo and Edwards at No. 4 and No. 2 singles, Saint Lucia’s Meggan William provided the match-clinching win at No. 6 singles, 6-0, 6-4, to give UC the four points needed for victory.

The Golden Eagles weren’t done there though, sweeping the final three courts in play, two of which were in a third-set super tiebreaker.

Charleston is 3-1 overall on their trip to Orlando heading into Thursday’s finale against Texas A&M University – Kingsville.
