Lady 'Cats Win Convincingly Over UVa.-Wise, 8-1

WISE, Va. – The West Virginia Wesleyan Lady Bobcat tennis team continues to make it look easy early on as they improved their record to 3-0 with a convincing 8-1 road win over Mountain East Conference foe UVa.-Wise here Thursday afternoon.

The Lady Bobcats went 3-0 in doubles action then went on to win five of the six singles matches.

"We earned an important win in the MEC," remarked head coach Marc Walters. "We took five of the six singles matches, but three of those were three set tiebreakers.

"I was really encouraged by our improvement in doubles at the way we have played in close matches. It's a good sign for the younger players that we have worked though tight spots and pressure to play at a decent level and get what we want.

The Lady Bobcats will play again Wednesday at West Liberty in an MEC outing.

It is slated to start at 2:30 p.m.
