DUMFRIES, Virginia - The UNCW women's tennis team dominated George Mason, 7-0, on Sunday to win for the second time in three outings on its opening weekend of the spring schedule.
Coach Jenny Garrity's team defeated Drexel and lost to 35th-ranked VCU on Saturday in the VCU 4-1 Invitational before moving up to the Northern Virginia to take on the Patriots.
Playing at the Monticello Racquet Club, the Seahawks mowed down the Patriots in doubles for the early point and then swept to straight-set victories in all six singles matches for the easy win.
"I thought it was a good way to start the season by picking up two good wins in conference play," said Garrity. "Our team was very business-like all weekend and I was impressed with the level we competed at for an opening weekend.
"We were disappointed in our execution against VCU yesterday, but will learn a lot from that match. When you have evenly matched teams, it becomes a matter of execution a lot of times and VCU did a better job than we did. We look forward to getting back to drawing board and working on it.
"We had two freshmen get their first college wins this weekend and I was proud of their poise and toughness in having to open against tough CAA players. We look forward to playing at home for the first time in a few weeks."
In singles, senior Christina Lee belted Alison Wingo, 6-3, 6-2, at the No. 1 slot and sophomore Angie Sekely blew past Ashley Delaney, 6-1, 6-1, at No. 2.
The Seahawks return home for their next match, entertaining North Florida on Feb. 11 at 1 p.m.
