|It's Seventh Heaven for Women's Tennis|
NORFOLK, Virginia – The UNCW women’s tennis team reeled off its seventh straight victory and second in a row in conference play by breezing past Colonial Athletic Association foe Delaware, 6-1, early Sunday at Old Dominion’s Folkes Stevens Tennis Center.
The Seahawks won for the ninth time in their last 10 matches to improve to 12-3 overall and 2-0 in the CAA. The Blue Hens had their two-match winning streak snapped and stand 5-6 and 1-1.
Coach Evan Clark’s team won the doubles point for the 12th time this spring by taking all three matches for the early point. The No. 2 team of senior Angie Sekely and junior Alyssa Ritchie got things going with an easy 8-0 decision over Nataliya Naumova and Danea Jonjic and the No. 3 tandem of senior Kelly Cameron and junior Miller Hales remained perfect at 8-0 on the season with an 8-3 verdict over Olivia Heim and Kim Milla.
The Seahawks hiked the score to 2-0 on Cameron’s 6-1, 6-2 triumph over Heim at No. 5 singles and freshman Alix Theodossiou followed with a 6-2, 6-3 win over Milla at the No. 6 position for a 3-0 advantage. Sekely, a senior from Mississauga, Ontario, then nailed down the clincher for the sixth time by thumping Jonjic, 6-2, 6-1, at the top of the lineup.
The red-hot Seahawks return to Wilmington to host a pair of conference matches. UNCW entertains the College of Charleston on Friday, April 4, at 2 p.m. before wrapping up the weekend on Sunday, April 6, with an 11 a.m. match against James Madison.
