The University of Tennessee at Chattanooga women’s tennis team hosts Lee University Thursday in a rescheduled match from earlier in the season. This is the last home match for the Mocs who close out the regular season at Samford on Saturday.
First serve against the Flames is set for 2:30 p.m. (E.D.T.) at the UTC Tennis Courts.
This contest against Lee is the fifth in the series. It was previously scheduled for February 26 but was changed due to inclement weather. UTC is 4-0 all-time against the Flames, and has never dropped a point in the series.
The Mocs are currently undefeated at home with a record of 9-0. UTC is going for its first perfect record at home since an 8-0 mark in 1999.
Chattanooga is 16-3 overall and tied with Samford for second in the Southern Conference race at 7-1. Furman is currently first with a 7-0 league mark.
Senior Alexa Flynn and sophomore Kayla Jones are both on three-match winning streaks. Jones is 13-6 at No. 1 while Flynn is 13-4 at No. 3. Flynn and Chadwell lead the doubles efforts with a 10-2 record at No. 1.
Teams are all battling for the SoCon regular season trophy as well as positioning at the SoCon Tournament in less than two weeks. UTC is the host for the event on April 16-19 at the Champions Club in Chattanooga.
