Mocs Host Austin Peay Friday, Clark Goes for 100th Win
The University of Tennessee at Chattanooga women's tennis team hosts Austin Peay at the Hixson Racquet Club on Friday.  Match time with the Lady Govs is set for 6:00 p.m. (E.S.T.) and a link for live scoring is available on the women's tennis schedule page on GoMocs.com. 

UTC's Jeff Clark is going for his 100th win as the head coach of the Lady Mocs.  He guided the team to a 43-27 record in his first stint at Chattanooga from 1999-01.  He is in the sixth year of his second term and has a career record of 99-84. 

The Lady Mocs are 4-0 for the second year in a row.  UTC has posted three-straight shutouts and has only lost one point this season.  The four wins have come against regional foes Kennesaw State (6-1), Belmont (7-0), Middle Tennessee (7-0) and Lipscomb (7-0).  The MTSU win snapped a 13-match losing streak against the Blue Raiders and was UTC's first win in the series since 1999. 

UTC is led by senior Jenna Nurik (Roswell, Ga.) who is off to a 4-0 start at No. 1.    Sophomore Claire Mulyadi (Semarang, Indonesia) and freshmen Kayla Jones (Memphis, Tenn.) and Kelsey Coots (Huntsville, Ala.) are also 4-0 in singles.  Junior Alexa Flynn (Memphis, Tenn.) is undefeated in three matches while sophomore Kaylene Chadwell (Franklin, Tenn.) has a 3-1 record. 

Flynn and freshman Katie Polk (Woodstock, Ga.) lead the way in doubles with a 3-0 mark while Nurik and Chadwell are 3-1.  Coots and Jones are also 3-1 in the spring.

Austin Peay lost its only match of the season, a 7-0 sweep at Samford on Jan. 26.  The last time UTC faced the Lady Govs was a 4-3 loss in Clarksville, Tenn, on Feb. 21, 2010.  Nurik is the only current Lady Moc who was on the team for that match.  She lost her No. 1 bout to Vanja Tomic (6-3, 6-4).
